The conditions were certainly on a better note for this week than they were last week with torrential downpours affected the ADJFA schedule, this week it was warm, brisk weather and a cup tie to please the neutral was in stock. Huntly won the game 4-3 with the game providing so much twists and turns with Mannofield pulling the game back after a rallying half time team talk from Filippo Antoniazzi. Huntly got themselves back into the game once extra time began and Mannofield ran out of energy with Huntly netting right at the death.
Huntly were the first side to have a shot on goal in a tie that contained so many chances with both keepers putting in good shifts with their reflex type of saves, a Michael Tait deflected effort was parried by Ryan Albin who then gathered up the loose ends afterwards. Tait then tried to set up an opportunity for the visitors when he played through Jamie Goodall however his effort sailed over.
The Strathbogie outfit then took the lead with what many will describe as a peach, Goodall sent in a cross and his delivery ended up going into the back of the net from 40 yards with the forward getting a bit of luck in finding the net.
Goodall then added to the scoring after a poor mistake in the Mannofield defence led to the black and gold player given time and space before keeping his composure and firing straight into the Mannofield net.
