Goals from MacKenzie Taylor and Sean Dickie was enough for Elite to win at home against Ellon Meadows, as the business end of the season reaches its climax. It was a fine day for football at the Garioch Centre, Inverurie.
Both sides played some exciting football in this contest with Elite being the more clinical side in front of goal. Jackson Sweeney almost opened the scoring for the hosts with an effort which crashed off the crossbar.
Sweeney then had a cross into the box which deflected off an Ellon defender towards goal however Cameron Montgomery in the visiting goal denied the talented midfielder who had a good game for the hosts.
A good ball in by Sam Connor found its way into Callum Kelly for Ellon however before the forward pulled the trigger, the Elite defence denied the visitors a clear cut chance on goal.
Elite enjoyed some good attacking activity towards the end of the first half and almost opened the scoring on 18 minutes with a corner in from the left hand side by Owen McKenzie which was met by Cody Whyte however his header went over the bar.
The hosts opened the scoring three minutes later after another great strike from Jackson Sweeney crashed off the woodwork which would have been a fantastic strike had it gone in however MacKenzie Taylor was there to clean things up and guide the ball home to break the deadlock for Elite.
