Buckie brothers in arms Kevin and James Fraser combined to dump Turriff Utd.

Kevin set up James for his first goal for the club in the 1-0 win over the visitors.

James Fraser slid the ball home from close range five minutes before half-time.

Kevin had earlier missed a great chance when he beat the offside trap after as great pass from Drew Copeland, but fired wide with just goalkeeper Kevin Main to beat.

On the stroke of half-time Buckie got a stroke of luck when Nicky Gray tapped the ball home at the far post from a free-kick but he was ruled to be offside.

At the start of the second half, Gary McGowan saw a shot blocked by Buckie defender Lewis Mackinnon and then Greg Sim made a good save at the feet of Andy MacAskill.

Turriff were reduced to ten men when Paul Young was shown a second yellow card after 62 minutes for a block on Chris Angus.

Ex-Jag Main made a good save to keep out a low shot from Copeland with 18 minutes remaining.

Paul Napier popped up as an emergency defender with 12 minutes left to block a Craig MacAskill shot.

Kevin Fraser had proved a constant thorn in Turra’s side and when he jinked past two defenders and fired a terrific ball across the face of goal there were no takers.

In the 88th minute Buckie were awarded a free-kick and Chris Hegarty fired his effort just wide of the goal.

Buckie had a scare with a minute remaining when Ally McKenzie’s cross cum shot was juggled at the far post by Sim before the keeper finally gathered the ball.

A great three points for the Jags and against one of the Highland League’s big four this season.

Buckie: Sim, Angus, Carrol, MacRae, Mackinnon, Hegarty, Copeland, Cheyne (Taylor), J Fraser, K Fraser, Napier. Not used: Wyness, D Wood, Scott, Stewart, Munro and Strong.
