At the Garioch Centre, it was quarter-finals day with Glenburn making the long journey north from Ayrshire to Inverurie and despite the distance that the Miners had to travel they weren't scared to put up a good game in atrocious conditions.
It was a game which produced good football from both teams and the gale force winds did make trying to football hard at times, it was an even game with both teams cancelling each other out and making sure they went all the way to a penalty shoot-out.
Kick-off was delayed by 15 minutes due to an error which saw amateur team Fintray Thistle train on their pitch due to their match getting called off because of the weather, however the playing arena was cleared and the game kicked off at a frantic pace.
The opening exchanges to the change resulted in very little chances for either team with play for both teams lacking in the final third which prevented the hardy crowd that turned out for the Scottish Cup tie from seeing a goal up until the 41st minute.
Glenburn looked the more dangerous and also looked more likely to grab the 1st goal, Allan McKelvie had a drive from 10 yards which just went wide of the left hand post before Darius Graham had a 20 yard effort went straight at Jordan Garrow in the Locos goal.
This seemed to be a bit of a wake-up call for Colony and they had a few chances after the half hour mark, first after a great ball came in by Kieran Lawrence which was perfectly timed by Phillip Woodgreaves who latched his header over the bar, then Alex Duguid had a 10 yard shot straight at Andrew Clark in the Glenburn goal.
It looked like it would be stalemate going into the interval until the visitors got a bit of luck through unfortunate circumstances for the hosts, a shot from Nicholas Moore looked an easy save for Garrow in the home goal until it slipped through his fingers and in. Garrow was to be the hero come 3.30pm.
