Echt Claim the Premier Trophy

Echt 2 – 1 Kincorth

Echt got their name on the Premier League Trophy for the second time in four years. After going a goal down in nine minutes they fought back scoring two goals in the second half.

Kincorth went ahead from a goal by Mark Hutchins who ran at the defence and fired in a shot from an acute angle beating keeper Garden.

Echt had a shaky twenty minutes but their defence stood firm and for the rest of the first half they matched Kincorth in every department.

Echt had a chance when Presslie beat the offside trap but a poor shot was saved by keeper Stephen.

Just before half time Echt’s Smith hit the crossbar with keeper Stephen beaten.

Echt’s first attack in the second half started with a run down the right with Patterson’s cross met by Frazer Cerretti who volleyed the ball past keeper Stephen.

In eighty two minutes Paul Presslie scored the winner from the edge of the six yard box making the final score 2-1.
