Greyhope Boys and Kintore United met in a mid-week fixture where Kintore United claimed the victory with a 3-2 win. Their goals were scored by Samual Gerrard and two by Ben Riddoch, while Angus Smith claimed both of Greyhope’s goals.
Play got underway and Greyhope showed their intent as Dylan Irvine drove the ball forward but Samual Gerrard challenged and won the ball to set up the counterattack. He put the ball through for Dylan Henderson who shot from fifteen yards and wide to the right. Greyhope goalkeeper, Kyle Ferguson, pushed it wide and though Gerrard followed up, Ferguson cleared.
The home side were soon on the attack again and were awarded a corner. Brandon Napier crossed the ball into the box where Angus Smith was waiting to knock it in to open the scoring in the fifth minute.
Kintore made a break through Alexander Walton who passed inside to Henderson but his shot from the edge of the box was wide. The visitors were then awarded a corner which Henderson crossed into the box. Scott Nathanial tried to knock it in from close range but Jamie Buchan cleared.
Buchan was soon involved in the action again and he put the ball into space for Prezemek Wiencek. He raced down the wing and shot from twenty-five yards but it went wide. However Greyhope continued to press, and Oskar Ouscarek made a powerful shot from thirty yards but it was palmed wide by Kintore goalkeeper, Sam Woolley.
The visitors continued to look for a chance to equalise and Gerrard put the ball through for Walton who headed it from inside the box but it was cleared by Lewis Stewart. However Lennon Cowie sent the ball through for Walton once again who drove down the wing and crossed the ball into the box where it was smothered by Ferguson.
Wiencek and Buchan linked up for Greyhope to press forward but Kintore held their defence and Lauchlan Hadden forced the ball out of play. From the ensuing corner, Wiencek crossed the ball into the box where it was initially cleared. Ouscarek followed up with a shot from twenty-five yards but Walton cleared.
Gerrard went on the counterattack, breaking down the wing and driving into the box where he was brought down. Henderson aimed his penalty to the bottom left corner but Ferguson pushed it wide. Cowie followed up with his shot from twenty yards but sent it just wide.
Greyhope showed great control and broke down the wing but drove just too far, shooting from fifteen yards and wide to the right but firing just wide to bring the half to a close.
