Three red cards, Three goals and Three points for Turriff Utd.
Referee Alex Shepherd had a busy 1st half sending off Stewart Cumming for Turriff Utd and Lukasz Geruzel for Wick Academy. The second half saw Wick reduced to nine men after Grant Campbell saw his second yellow card for a tackle on substitute Darren Mackie.
Wick took the lead on the 72nd minute with substitute Gary Weir side-footing a well worked goal. The home side did not give up and Cammy Bowden nipped in front of the visitors defence to equalise on 90minues. Turriff secured all three points with ex-Aberdeen player Darren Mackie scoring a half-volley from just inside the 18yeard box.

An update to fans of the Scottish Highland Football League.
You, the fans, have sent in some suggestions for the website and ideas for filming.
Here is a quick list so far:-
1. Filming friendly games suggested by Craig Nicolson – some pre-season games were filmed along with two testimonials.
2. Website, index teams to easily view footage – suggested by Derek Lowe. Just today my web-designer has added this great feature and it works really well. Go to “categories” near the top-right of the website and choose which team you wish to view and all games filmed will be shown!
3. Add commentary, suggested by Gordon Henderson. Iain Auld & Neil Didsbury have been added to the SHFLtv team and you have to agree they are simply superb !
4. Slow-mo replays after goals – Kenny MacLeod
Other ideas that have come in that are great but at the moment I don’t have the time but hopefully this will happen soon:-
5. Live streaming, Live games suggested by Robert from Ft William and Bradley Neish
6. Player transfers, new players in/out – suggested by Marty Strathspey Thistle
7. Fan reactions, promo pieces for team towns – suggested by Jamie King.
8. Craig Munro & his uncle dancing in the terraces – Suggested by some twitter users!
See Cove Rangers v Huntly (4mins to 4mins 10secs !)
Keep sending in your ideas, all are taken on-board and as the program develops you the fans will get what you are looking for!
