Huntly 0 Wick Academy 2
Goals either side of half-time saw Wick Academy go top of the league table while results elsewhere put Huntly at the bottom.
Huntly welcomed back midfielder Murray McCulloch while Adam McNamee came back in for a start. Wick made changes from the side which put seven past Rothes last week with Grant Steven coming in for the injured Sam MacKay.
Wick threatened after a minute with David Allan shooting over after being given time and space. Huntly vice-captain Mark Lawson is still searching for his first goal for the club and he headed wide after an Alexander Thoirs' cross. When a ball in from the right flank was not cleared it fell to winger Richard Macadie who curled wide.
Sam McKenzie was first into Referee Thomas Shaw’s notebook for a challenge on David Allan on the edge of the area. From the resultant dead ball, Richard Macadie curled up and over and into the arms of Fraser Hobday. There were further chances for the visitors when full-back Michael Steven pushed forward before shooting narrowly over.
Nine minutes from the break a cross from the left was not dealt with and it fell to Lukasz Geruzel inside the penalty box and he drilled low inside the post for his ninth goal of the season.
Huntly had chances after going behind when Callum Dunbar’s volley was held by Sean McCarthy while Michael Steven did well to block a Neale Davidson drive.
After Thomas Johnston limped off for Sam Harrison there was a further enforced change for the Black and Golds just before half-time when Mark Gray replaced Thoirs.
A minute into the second half a ball in behind from Adam McNamee found Harrison but he screwed his shot wide.
Wick doubled their lead in the 52nd minute when Geruzel played in David Allan and he delivered a low ball into the box for Steven Harrison to tap in from close range. The Scorries did have chances to extend their lead when Michael Steven headed over on the hour mark but there was to be no more scoring.
