BUCKIE Thistle's first Scottish Cup win on an SFL ground for 56 years makes then club legends, says manager Gary Hake.
Jags came from behind with a man down to emerge as 2-1 victors in Saturday's William Hill Scottish Cup replay at Division 3 Annan.
Two goals by supersub Zander Sutherland helped Buckie reach the third round, where they will play host to fellow Highland League side Turriff United.
Buckie hadn't won at a league ground in the cup since 1956, a fact boss Hake made his players about before the match at Galabank.
"I said if you go out and do it, you become legends," Gary said. "In my book they are now legends.
"To a man they were absolutely magnificent and they deserved to go through over the two games."
Following the previous Saturday's 0-0 draw at Victoria Park, some thought Jags had blown their best chance of going through.
But with talisman Sutherland and key midfielder David Macrae back in their squad after both attended a wedding and missed the first match, confidence was high in the camp.
Neither side could break the deadlock during the first half of Saturday's replay, but Scott Chaplain opened the scoring for Annan just two minutes after the break.
Sutherland came off the bench to replace the injured MacRae, and swiftly made an impact with a brilliant free kick equaliser.
Buckie looked up against it when they had Shaun Carrol red carded midway through the second half, but Sutherland popped up with a second goal to thrill the travelling supporters.
A string of fine saves by Kevin Main ensured Buckie maintained their lead until the final whistle.
In the Highland League, Rothes won 2-0 at Fort William, champs Forres crashed 2-1 at home to Turriff, while Huntly staged an amazing comeback from 4-0 down to draw 4-4 with derby rivals Inverurie Locos.
