Fraserburgh may not have moved up the SHFL table but they have closed in on the main group of teams that sit behind the top five thanks to a 5-1 win over Rothes at Bellslea Park on Saturday.
The Broch were ahead in the tenth minute when a Neil Main free kick was headed home by Bryan Hay from six yards out and looked as though the home team were going to run away with things when they doubled their lead from the penalty spot in the 20th minute.
Steven Main was tripped by Alan Shearer just inside the area with the Rothes man being joined in the book by his team mate Michael Dunn for dissent. Ryan Christie fired home the spot kick using the inside of the keepers right hand post as a target for his precisely taken pen.
Rothes held out until half time and put a cat amongst the pigeons three minutes into the second half when on form striker Sean McIntosh drilled home an 18 yard effort that reduced the deficit to one.
However two goals in four minutes killed off the Rothes challenge once and for all. Scott Barbour played the ball in to Graham Johnston who placed the ball beyond Greg Sim in the 61st minute before it was Barbour’s turn to get on the scoresheet, curling a wonderful shot into the top corner of the net from 16 yards.
The icing was put on the cake in the 89th minute by Willie West. A Neil Main free kick once again found Bryan Hay but this time he nodded back to Willie West who crashed the ball home from 12 yards to stake his claim for the supersub award.
