There were great expectations for Academy as the game kicked off at neutral Grant Street Park, Inverness, in glorious autumn sunshine, before a crowd of 1,300, the majority of whom were Scorrie supporters. Their hopes were dealt a blow when County got off to the perfect start, in the opening minutes, Robbie Duncanson finding the net at his second attempt, before the opposition had time to settle. It rocked Wick, who were unlucky not to get something for their efforts after they rallied, in a game in which both keepers were on form. The Scorries kept up the pressure in the second half and got the all-important equaliser from a goal-mouth ruck which ended with the ball being headed into their opponents net, credit going to Craig Shearer. However, Nairn made it 2-1 in the first period of extra time, courtesy of John Cameron, extinguishing Wick’s cup hopes.
