The sunny day and strong breeze was typical weather for a Buchan derby match. Fraserburgh started the match with the wind at their back and each team made a lively start.
While Peterhead had most of the early possession, Fraserburgh looked dangerous on the break.
After ten minutes, Peterhead keeper Tait could only look on as Ryan Tait placed chipped the ball into the postage stamp from about eighteen yards.
The Blue team were stung and the rest of the half followed the early pattern of Peterhead having most of the ball but Fraserburgh hitting on the break. Indeed neither keeper had too much more to do before half-time.
After the turn round and now facing the wind, it was Fraserburgh who started best without really troubling the Peterhead keeper. They continued to play their passing game which suited the conditions.
However after, twenty minutes Peterhead equalised. A through ball caught the Fraserburgh back line square and Jaimie Mason scored.
The same player scored again ten minutes later with an excellent solo effort. Holding off close attention on the left, he turned inside the defenders and smashed his shot into the far side of the net.
Sandwiched between these two goals was another excellent finish as Peterhead found the long through ball to be paying dividends against the tiring Fraserburgh defence.
Two more goals from peterhead sealed the result for the Blue Toon. Nathan Morrison (2) and Mark Foley were the other Peterhead scorers.
While the result was emphatic in reality Fraserburgh were holding their own until midway through the second half when the quick goals from Peterhead stunned them. The Fraserburgh keeper did produce several excellent saves to keep his side in contention.
