Colony Park Sunday round-up

COLONY Park U15s had a trip to face Fraserburgh Link Up looking to chalk up a second league win but failed to find the net going down by three goals to nil.

Colony Park 14s Cove BC in what was anticipated as a tough match but earned a convincing win after a blistering start with new signing Lewis Buxton creating havoc in the visiting defence.

BUXTON opened the scoring for Colony with two goals in the first ten minutes.

Callum JONES made it three with a header in the box from a loose ball and Lewis BUXTON stuck again for his hat-trick beating the offside trap for the umpteenth time and then added another to seal a half time score of Colony 5, Cove 0.

Cove pulled a goal back from the penalty spot early in the second half, but Colony were too strong throughout and a three goal second half onslaught from striker Adam SMITH sealed Cove’s fate.

A good through ball found Callum Taylor who ran at the Cove goal and squared an excellent and unselfish pass to Callum SEYMOUR to score his opening goal of the season and make the final score Colony Park 9-1 Cove.

Colony Colts U14s notched their first ever competitive victory on Sunday, and in some style too, with an 8-2 win over Formartine.

Connor MACLEOD put Colony in front early on, then a Euan Clark cross was turned into the net by a Formartine defender to make it two.

After this Colts dominated the half, scoring twice more through MACLEOD heading in from a corner, then Jamie REID finishing neatly.

Formartine pulled one back before half time but Colts should have been out of sight, incredibly missing two penalties.

Colony were kicking up the slope second half, but weathered early pressure to finish the game off.

Both MACLEOD and REID getting hat tricks after tireless work, and John GRAY getting the eighth after some amazing dribbling from centre back Lewis Paver.

An incredible result that shows the effort and commitment these young lads are putting in and happy coaching staff who have shown great dedication over the last few
seasons

For the U13s the final BATT Cables Trophy Section 5 group match would see the winners start off in the A League, and the losers enter the B League.

Donside started the game the strongest and with only three minutes gone took the lead with a simple finish.

It took 30 minutes for Colony to get back in the game when they worked the ball across the box to the left and Logan LAWRENCE fired the ball into the top corner with a superb finish.

Just after half time Donside were awarded a penalty when the referee spotted an infringement at a corner.

Colony goalkeeper Lucas Scott pulled off a fantastic save from the spot kick.

Colony were coming more and more into the game and Rory Gauld hit a shot off the bar just before Murray GRANT put Colony ahead with a great strike into the top corner.

Donside weren’t finished and equalized with a tap in from a cross from right, then soon after went ahead after the Colony defence were unable to clear the ball.

The Donside defence battled hard and Colony were restricted to long range strikes.

The game could have gone either way but in the end Donside just edged it and Colony will start their competitive football in the B League.
