FOUR goals after half-time saw Huntly come from behind to record a convincing win over Clachnacuddin in Inverness.

The home side were ahead after four minutes, and continued to lead at the break, but Andy Hunter's double had the Black and Golds ahead by the 54th minute.

Further goals from Callum Murray and Angus Grant added to the visitors' tally, before Clach pulled a late goal back for 4-2.

Huntly boss Colin Charlesworth said: "Clach started well in the first 15 minutes and we didn't deal with it.

"We didn't get to grips with the pitch, the weather, the wind or Clach's high intensity.

"After that we took the sting out of it and controlled it a bit better without threatening them.

Second half we turned it on and that was a Huntly side that everyone has become accustomed to this season."

Charlesworth was delighted with his side's second-half showing – adding that momentum was key in games with regard to racking up goals.

Huntly are now the league's joint top scorers – with Banks O' Dee – having hit 59 in 21 matches.

"Momentum is massive in football," Charlesworth added. "Whether that's a run of games, or when you get a goal in a game.

"When we get one we need to make sure we don't take our foot off the gas and we keep going.

"We are the top scorers in the league for a reason because we have dangerous players going forward and we attack well."

Andy Hunter is a big part of Huntly's goalscoring success – having scored 18 and teed up eight.

"He is like a fine wine getting better with age," Charlesworth added. "He is making it easy to pick him every week, his numbers are phenomenal.

"When you put him in front of goal you would put your mortgage on him scoring.

"And not only that, we build a lot of what we do through him and Angus Grant just now and it's working a treat."

Huntly are back on the road on Saturday when they make the short trip to The Haughs to take on Turriff United.
