Scorers - Wick: Macadie (18) Forres: Stuart (5)

DANNY McCarthy pulled off a wonder save in the final minute to earn Wick Academy a point against Forres Mechanics at Harmsworth Park.

The visitors took the lead after five minutes when Ryan Stuart scored with a low drive from 20 yards that went into the bottom left corner of the net.

But Richard Macadie levelled the game midway through the first half when he latched on to a Jack Halliday pass and ran past the goalkeeper before firing from a tight angle into the back of the net from 10 yards.

Both teams had chances to find a winner but Forres came closest when Lee Fraser's thunderous shot from the edge of the box took a deflection and appeared to be heading straight into the top right hand corner.

But McCarthy pulled off a fantastic save to parry the ball away from goal as both teams settled for a point.
