Joy of six as Wick march on

Gordon Connelly

Wick Academy closed the gap on the Highland League top five as they recorded their sixth suc-cessive league victory by beating a dogged Fort William.

Wick dominated although Fort defended stoutly for the first half-hour until Gary Weir latched on to a James Pickles pass, rounded Daniel Maclennan and fired in from a tight angle.

Academy picked up the pace and should have extended their lead before half-time but Weir and Richard Macadie both missed the target with great headed chances.

They did eventually find a second goal when in the 65th minute Steven Anderson converted at the back post after a goalmouth scramble following a Sam Mackay corner.

The scoreline could have been much worse for Fort, Weir having disallowed goals for offside on three occasions.

Scorries manager Gordon Connelly said: “It was frustrating, Fort have a good system that they stick to, we knew we’d have to be patient and eventually the goals came.

“It was equally frustrating for Gary Weir who had three goals disallowed but the goals will come for him”

Fort William manager Ally Ewen said: “Wick Academy are a very good side and losing 2-0 isn’t a disgrace but overall we’re disappointed.

“We didn’t play well.”
