Huntly FC
Culter Deeside
U14 ADJFA League 'B'
An overcast start to the match in Huntly quickly turned to frequent heavy showers and in amongst the rain, both teams pressed for the first goal. Culter, playing catch up in the league with games in hand, were desperate for the victory which showed in their early play being rushed with poor decision making in the last third of the pitch.

Eventually, Culter broke through the Huntly lines with both Adam Reid & Liam McKintosh having shots at goal but both off target. Not to outdone, Huntly pressurised the Culter defence on several occasions in the first half and Culter have Thomas Stewart to thank for keeping the Huntly strikers out. Culter had a couple of penalty shouts as well but waved away by the referee on the day.

As the half wore on, Shaun Corthels missed a chance in the 6 yard box after good work from Adam Reid and Liam McKintosh, looking more dangerous, struck the bar from outside the 18 yard box.

Half Time: Huntly FC 0-0 Culter Deeside

Moving into the second half it was still 0-0. Culter finally break the deadlock with probably their scrappiest goal of the season as Adam Reid eventually bundles the ball over the line. The goal seem to relax Culter as they quickly followed this up with another, Adam Reid this time with a good strike past the Huntly goalkeeper.

At 2-0 Culter started to switch off and Huntly grab their opener with their striker first to react to a long range parry from Thomas Stewart. At 2-1, it seemed it was game on again.

However, Adam Reid was on a mission for his hat-trick and finised in style with a fine strike after a nice turn in the box. 3-1 Culter…..

Euan Ross then goes close with a mazy dribble and shot but then gets the goal of the day with a fine volley into the top corner to make the final score 4-1 Culter.
Full Time: Huntly FC 1-4 Culter Deeside
