Bon Accord City 2 – 3 Woodside

Aberdeen Trophy Centre Premier Trophy First Round at Lochside on Saturday 28th August

Newly promoted Woodside go through to the next round of the Aberdeen Trophy Centre Premier Trophy after beating Premier League Champions Bon Accord in an exciting game.

Ten minutes of play elapsed before any keeper was called into action when Bon Accord’s keeper Morrison had to push a shot from Woodside’s Jack round the post for a corner. Woodside’s Donaldson made a run down the right, sent in a cross which was headed over the bar by Simpson.

Woodside went ahead in twelve minutes after a cross from Jack was punched out by keeper Morrison as far as Woodside’s Barry Gray who scored from six yards.

Woodside’s lead lasted for three minutes after a run by Bon Accord’s McCulloch who passed to Stewart McLaren whose shot went into the goal via the post.

Play was flowing from end to end, both keepers having to make saves and in thirty seven minutes Bon Accord went ahead after Woodside failed to clear a loose ball allowing Craig Tiffnay to score for Bon Accord making the score at half time 2-1.

The second half started with Bon Accord looking to add to their lead but they could not break down the strong Woodside defence. With sixty three minutes gone Woodside’s keeper Warman made the save of the match diving to his right and fingertipping the ball for a corner from Tiffnay’s drive.

Bon Accord were caught appealling for offside and let Mark Donaldson through to score the equaliser. Woodside wrapped the game up in eighty five minutes when James Simpson beat keeper Morrison with a right foot drive making the final score 2-3.
