Colony Park Weekend Round-up

Islavale were the visitors to Colony Park Juniors in the first round of the GA Engineering Cup.

Colony took the lead when a through ball saw Adam MAITLAND in a chase for the ball with the Vale keeper and he managed to stab the ball past the advancing keeper.

Play went from end-to end with defences on top and opportunities restricted to efforts from outside the box.

The second half followed on from the first with attack and counter-attack with Colony looking to make the match safe.

On the hour mark Islavale equalised when defender Roddy Mess missed a through ball allowing COWIE in to score from 12 yards. Vale took the lead when McDonald went down in the box and CORMACK converted the resulting penalty.

In the dying minutes Vale made the game safe when COWIE headed him a free kick. In the last minute Islavale captain Kyle MacKay was carried off with what turned out to be a double leg break which overshadowed the victory of the Keith side in a real cup tie match. After the match the Colony Committee and players wished Kyle a speedy recovery.

The U19 Colony Locos faced Turriff United and went one up inside first few minutes.

Laird drove forward on the right , cut inside and laid off to MITCHELL who lashed high into the net. MCCABE made it 2-0 fro a free kick 20 yards out.

The strike was goal bound but took wicked deflection which wrong footed the away keeper.Locos dominance disappeared as

Turriff eventually pulled one back a few minutes before half-time. Goal number three for Colony came from a good quality ball into the box headed home by WOODGREAVES. The fourth was another excellently constructed goal as WOODGREAVES again turned striker and side footed a decent finish past the keeper after great build up play .The fifth goal saw MCCABE run from 40 yards and beat the keeper with composure. Turriff pulled back a late goal from the penalty spot. ity

Colony Colts 19s had Newmachar visiting at Davidson Park in the Scottish Cup.

Trailing 1-0 at half time the Colts had a dismal 15 minute spell early in the second half where they lost three goals and effectively the match, and won comfortably in the end with a further two goals .

Colony Park 16’s travelled to Huntly and lost two goals in the first half.

Huntly soaked up Colony’s pressure and scored another two goals from counter attacks.

The U15 Colts were looking to provide a cup upset as they were drawn against “A” League Peterhead.

A contentious penalty gave Peterhead the lead, and a scrappy goal was then conceded to leave Colony two down at the break.

Euan CLARK cut in from the left to fire home for Colts, but with five minutes to play the tiring Colts were caught on the break allowing Peterhead a third, the 3-1 scoreline flattering the visitors.

Colony Park U14s visited Kaimhill in Aberdeen to come up against A league opponents FDS.

Nine minutes into the second half, Colony took the lead. A free kick from Brailsford was headed across the goal by Christie and Andrew MCWATT had space to control the ball, turn and fire a left foot shot low into the net.

Stand in keeper Daniel Middler pulled off two superb late saves to frustrate the home team and win a place in the next round.

The Under 14 Colts were knocked out of the cup 12-1 by A league Side Westdyke.

Colony Park U13s were on the road against Byron Swifts and ran out comfortable 8-0 winners with four goals in each half. Colony scorers were HARPER (2), HUTCHINSON, COLE, GOODWIN (2), TAYLOR, CHAPMAN, KILLOH and SIMMOND.

Colony Colts U13 had a very competitive first half against Byron Madrid and were unlucky when losing goals to a rebound of the post and one in off a defender leaving them two down at half time and fairly harsh scoreline for their efforts. A Third goal in the second half then a penalty made the heads go down the Colts endured a tough spell but they rallied and finished the stronger team getting a really well worked consolation goal through Evan ORR.
