It’s high fives for Huntly after Fort William rout

Huntly produced their biggest win of the season with a 5-1 Highland League victory against Fort William.

The Black and Golds may have felt they could have won by a bigger margin as co-manager Andy Roddie was pleased with the number of goal attempts his side had.

He said: “We took five of the chances we had and it could have been more. The first came from an own goal but it was from great play by ourselves to force the error.

“We changed the team about and it shows you the players we have in the squad.”

The deadlock was broken after eight minutes when Ross Still’s cross form the left was turned into his own net by Fort defender Farquhar Macrae.

Robert Duncanson doubled Huntly’s lead before Scott Davidson pulled a goal back for the visitors.

The comeback did not last long as Dennis Wyness netted his 19th goal of the season to make it 3-1 before goals from Still and Glenn Murison wrapped up a fine day’s work for the Black and Golds.

Fort William assistant manager Kevin Munro was disappointed to see his side concede so soon after scoring. He said: “It’s the story of our season. We scored and then shot ourselves in the foot.

“Huntly took their goals well but 5-1 was maybe harsh on us. We need to cut out the silly mistakes.”
