Gourock YAC
Giffnock SC Juventus
U16's P&JYFL 
A solid victory for GSC Juventus started strongly who dominated the first exchanges, pinning Gourock in their own half. This pressure was rewarded from a throw –in well inside the Gourock half. Thrown well into the six yard box by Patrick O'Donnell , Ross Geddes reacted well to flick the ball into the net, 1-0 Juve.

The second came from a James Howard corner and Ross Geddes was first to it with a header at the back post, 2-0 Juve. A Geddes' hat trick was completed with another excellent corner from James Howard where he tapped in from 5 yards.

Gourock brought one back with a good cross and a smart finish from the winger into the bottom corner. Then just before half time Danny Mcbeth put Juve 4-1 up with yet another driving run from midfield finished with a shot low into the bottom corner from just inside the penalty box. First half dominated by Giffnock but with some good passages of play from Gourock contributing to a good first half.

Half time: Gourock YAC 1-4 Giffnock SC Juventus

The second half was a lot tighter with chances coming for both teams, with the greater number falling to Gourock, who failed to capitalise on them. This was in no small part down Lyle Macleod in the Giffnock goal who was outstanding in the second half with 3 or 4 marvellous saves from close range keeping Juve in the game.

Good work from the Giffnock defence and midfield kept Gourock's attacks at bay. Then with 10 minutes remaining the Gourock no.10 broke free from a long ball over the defence and finished well past Macleod.

The game still remained tight, with not many clear chances coming but then with a minute or two remaining Gourock's no.9 wasn't closed down and hit a powerful strike from 25-30 yards across Macleod, struck the post and rolled into the net. The final whistle blew very soon after this goal and the tight affair was finished.

Full time: Gourock YAC 3-4 Giffnock SC Juventus
