Middlefield secured all three points in emphatic style in a thrilling B League tie at Balmedie’s Beach Park.

Deveronvale had the game’s first chance of the match as Robert McIntosh’s shot was saved by Middlefield goalkeeper Jamie Butler.

It was the hosts that took the lead in the 10th minute as Michael Pottinger’s shot from outside the box found the back of the net after good play from the player.

Middlefield looked to extend their lead and Zane Islane had a shot saved by Deveronvale goalkeeper Kier Barker.

In the 25th minute, they made it 2-0 when Kieran Jamieson turned inside the box and his shot found the back of the net to double his side’s lead.

Deveronvale looked to get back into the match and an Adam Taylor strike went just wide of the goal.

Middlefield nearly added another when an Albert Kos strike was brilliantly tipped onto the crossbar by Kier Barker to keep his side in the match.

Just before the interval, Deveronvale pulled one back when Scott Urquhart chipped the ball into the net from the right hand side to score for his side with a fantastic finish.
