Fighting for the third place in the league table, Culter Boys and Deveronvale met in drizzly conditions. Culter took the three points with an 8-3 win. Their goals were scored by Saiyed Ahmed, with Jack Euan McGregor and Adian Parkinson scoring two goals each, and Zane Island scoring a hat trick. Adam Taylor scored two goals for Deveronvale while the third was added by Lewis McDonald.
Culter had the first chance of the game with Adam Merrakech putting the ball through for Saiyed Ahmed but Deveronvale held their defence and cleared before Ahmed could make a shot at goal.
The visitors then pressed forward with some interchanging play between Kieran Nelsh and Lewis McDonald but Culter’s Mitch Phillips cleared before Nelsh could make his shot.
The home side pressed forward again through Aidan Parkinson, Liam Mewse and Ahmed before Parkinson shot from thirty yards but it was caught by Deveronvale goalkeeper, Jonathan Edward.
Mewse drove the ball forward and passed inside for Ahmed but Deveronvale’s Scott Urquhart cleared. From the clearance, Nelsh pressed for the visitors but Phillips held tight in defence to deny the chance.
Culter were awarded a corner which was taken by Mewse. He crossed the ball into the box and Parkinson tapped it into the net to open the scoring in the fourth minute.
Deveronvale were soon on the attack through Adam Taylor, whose shot from twenty-five yards was just wide of the goal.
The home side pressed again and Zane Islane spotted a gap in the defence to race through but Edward swept out to smother the ball. Culter continued to press but Islane’s back heel flick from inside the box went wide.
The visitors pressed once more and Taylor crossed the ball into the box for Connor Runcle but his shot also went just wide.
Mewse was looking for an opening but Taylor remained tight in defence. Culter were then awarded a corner. Mewse crossed the ball into the box and Ahmed ran in to send it into the back of the net in the twentieth minute.
The home side did not take long to further extend their lead when, in the twenty-second minute, Parkinson pressed forward and sent the ball into the back of the net with his shot from the edge of the box.
Deveronvale were eager to get back in the game, and Eythin Duncan made a break down the wing and crossed the ball in for Runcie and Nelsh but Louis Fyle was looking sharp in defence and cleared the danger.
Nelsh drove the ball down the wing and laid the ball off for Runcie who put it into space for Calum Fraser. Fraser flicked the ball from inside the box but it was caught by Culter goalkeeper, Lewis Hardy.
The home side were on the attack again and Mewse lured Edward out and shot from inside the box but Urquhart cleared the ball off the line before disentangling himself from the net.
