COLONY Park Juniors faced Superleague side Banchory St Ternan and more than matched them in a goalless draw, but lost out on penalties 4-1 with only one spot kick converted by the home side.

The U19 Colony Locos were in action against Dee BC at the Garioch Sports Centre in their final Murray Cup tie in the knowledge that they had already secured A League status.

The home side were ahead within three minutes and were ten goals up at half time.

Colony finished with a 15 -0 win with ten different scorers: Greg Wood (5) Craig Turriff (2) Alex Duguid, Dan Crisp, Phil Woodgreaves, Euan Abel, Matt Battensby, Ben Rattraty, Grant Dawson and Gavin Emslie.

The U19 Colts travelled to Huntly in their last Murray Cup match, competed well for the first 20 minutes, but faded badly when they conceded the first goal.

Four-nil down at half-time, turned to 6 before Calum MELLIS coolly lobbed the keeper for his second of the season.

Despite not being at their best, the Colts created four other chances in the second half, but in the end were well beaten by a more aggressive, hungrier Huntly side.

Colony Park U17s traveled to meet a strengthened Westdyke having never lost a match to the Westhill side.

In a game which was fairly even the difference between the teams was the home side took their chances and the Inverurie side failed to convert any of theirs losing out 2-0 .

The U17 Colts team continued their great start to the season, chalking up a 7-2 win against an under strength Ellon Meadows side at a sunny Davidson Park with new signing Craig Brown netting five taking his tally to seven in three games since joining from the Park side.

The Colts elected to play with the wind at their backs in the first half with Craig BROWN benefitting from great service from his team mates, netting four with the fifth coming from a looping left foot strike from Matty TIMMINS to secure an unassailable lead at half time.

To their credit Ellon never gave up and pulled one back early in the second half with the wind behind them. Their joy was short lived as the lethal BROWN slotted home his fifth to restore the five goal cushion.

Ellon once again hit back with a wonder strike from distance before Michael WALLS scuffed home a seventh taking his own tally to three in three games.

A combination of poor finishing, not taking the right option and a tendency to stray offside ensured no further addition to the scoreline however a comfortable victory taking them to the top of the B league table but with harder matches to come .

The U16s are still finding their feet in the A league and had a visit to Banff to meet Deveronvale. The experienced A League side on their home turf were too good for the Garioch side who went down by four goals to nil despite a gutsy performance.
