Ellon Meadows beat Middlefield Wasps by four goals to two in this B League clash at Aberdeen’s Aulton Outdoor Pitches. In a somewhat scrappy game, it was the Ellon side that took all three points with clinical finishing.
It was Middlefield who had the first effort of the match as Sam Barbour’s shot from outside the box was saved by Ellon’s Ross Smith in goal.
It was the visitors who took the lead as Dean Bowie’s shot was saved by Tom Smith in the Middlefield goal only for Thammalak Buchan to score with the rebound.
A minute later Ellon doubled their advantage as Kieran Cranna headed home after a good corner was delivered from the right hand side.
Despite being two down Middlefield looked to get back into the match and Michal Wosinski had an effort from outside the box saved by Smith.
Ellon nearly made it three before the interval as Bowie’s effort from a narrow angle inside the right hand side of the box went narrowly wide.
Middlefield were playing the match with ten men as one of their players went off injured and they had no substitutes available.
