COLONY U19 Colts welcomed Westdyke to Davidson Park for their final Murray Cup section match.

Colony went behind to a disputed corner, and lost a second three minutes later. Trailing 2-0 at half-time, they got back in the game through MELLIS, before Westdyke restored their two goal advantage. A MUNRO free-kick brought it back to 3-2, and MELLIS leveled before Westdyke scored two late goals to win 5-3

Colony U17 Colts faced league contenders Banchory, who were defending a 100 per cent league record at Crathes.

BROWN put Colony ahead with his tenth of the season, before Banchory scored twice to lead 2-1 at half time. WATT scored towards the end to level and CENTER struck an unstoppable 25 yard shot in added time to record an impressive 3-2 victory.

The U15s met Westdyke in the Stonehaven Youth Trophy and led after 25 minutes when RIACH scored. Westdyke leveled before the match headed into extra-time. With neither team able to make the breakthrough it went to penalties, RIACH, COOPER and CRAIGEN all on target to win 3-2.

The U14s were in action in the SR Wood Trophy against lower league Dee BC. The prolific SMITH, who equaled the 25 year old scoring record for Colony last week, was on target after only 30 seconds, heralding an attacking onslaught. SMITH added another three, BUXTON a double hat-trick and two from BEATTIE completed a 12-1 win for free scoring Colony.

The U14 Colts found the gulf between themselves and A League opponents Westdyke too much, crashing out of the cup 11-0.

The U13s were away to Westdyke Thistle and were behind after two minutes. This galvanised Colony who leveled through FRASER, before going in at half-time 4-1 up with goals from MCWATT and two from YOUNG. ANDERSON put them 5-1 up, before Westdyke pulled a goal back, but GAULD ensured a 6-2 win.

The U13 Colts were at Longside for their first away match at 11-a-side level. They found themselves 3-0 down before WEBSTER pulled one back. Longside went 4-1 up, but MIDDLER and FREIL made it 4-3. Longside added two, but MIDDLER and WAREING both scored to make it 6-5. Two more Longside goals made it 9-5, with ADAMS grabbing Colony’s sixth to make the final score 9-6.
