A strong performance from the visitors was enough for Stonehaven YFC City to be crowned B League champions for season 2017-18 season at Under 15s level.
Stonehaven have performed very well all season and after finishing third last season Stonehaven have progressed massively, winning the league and also reaching the Belmont Trophy Final, beating A League sides Deveronvale and Newtonhill respectively.
Stonehaven started the game on the front foot, really threatening the Newmachar backline and the visitors thought they'd broken the deadlock after only four minutes with a shot from Kyle Phillps which bounced off the crossbar and bounced on the line, prompting calls from Stonehaven that they had scored, however the referee deemed that the ball had not in fact crossed the line.
The South Aberdeenshire side took the lead after 10 minutes when a shot from Kyle Phillips after a good ball slid under Aidan Wood and into the net to give the visitors the dream start. Stonehaven are a really good side going forward and this was definitely evident during the game.
Newmachar weren't at the races during the first half, with Stonehaven enjoying a lot of opportunities at goal and also a lot of posession. Harris Mitchell had a good chance to make it 2-0, however a good save from Wood denied the tall forward.
Stonehaven doubled their advantage after 28 minutes when Jacob Burgoyne went on a blistering 35-yard run which was unchallenged by the Newmachar defence and he sent a great ball in from the left hand flank and Fergus Carnie was on hand to slam the ball home into the back of the net from close range.
