Middlefield Wasps beat Donside Juvenile by four goals to two in an entertaining second round match in the Colony Park WP at Balmedie’s Beach Park.
It was Donside who had the game’s first chances. First Brodie Ross’ shot was saved by Middlefield’s Matthew Middleton in goal, then Liam Smith’s long range effort from outside the box went over the crossbar.
Middlefield then had two successive chances within a minute of each other as Finlay Runcie’s pass found Luke Scott whose shot from the right of the box was saved by the Deeside goalkeeper Ben Middleton. A minute later the Donside goalkeeper saved again as Liam Allan’s pass found Tyler Carr whose shot could not beat the goalkeeper.
It was Donside who went on took the lead, as Connor Cooper’s effort from outside the box left the goalkeeper with no chance to give the away side a 1-0 lead as half-time approached.
Middlefield nearly equalised before half time as Jack Burnett’s run and shot from the left of the box was saved by Middleton to ensure that Donside went into the interval in the lead.
