He scores when he wants
Elgin City raced into an early two goal lead through a Tom Grivosti header and a great finish from Brian Cameron as City hit on the counter when Connor O'Keefe did well down the right before Cameron hammered a tremendous shot high into the net from just inside the box. Just when it looked like Elgin were cruising, Billy Mckay took matters into his own hands when he fired home from sixteen yards and then grabbed a second two minutes later as pressure mounted on the home goal.
Half Time: 2-2
After an even opening to the second half, Billy Mckay got his hat-trick before a great through ball from McAlear put Lewis Jamieson through to dink his shot behind McHale for the fourth Inverness goal as Elgin heads went down. With the wind now out of the Elgin sails, Inverness saw out the game comfortably to progress into the next round to face Raith Rovers.
Full Time: 2-4
A good workout for the guys and great to see MotM Billy Mckay amongst the goals, that's five in the two ties so far. Elgin gave the visitors plenty of problems in the first half hour before the Billy Mckay show started. A tidy finish from Lewis Jamieson as well when he tucked the ball round the keeper, the spin just enough to take the ball inside the post to round off the scoring in an entertaining game. Cammy Mackay made a great stop from a powerful drive in the second half as Elgin threatened momentarily, but Inverness eventually wore down the League two side.
