Watt hits four as Bellslea triumph

IN THE Deejays Nightclub League at the weekend, Bellslea entertained Mormond Thistle and the home side had a comfortable win by 6-1 with hitman Fraser Watt netting four and Gavin Wemyss scoring the other two.

New Deer faced neighbours New Pitsligo and the away side took the lead with a brilliant 25-yard free kick from Ryan Christie. The home side drew level a minute before half time with a goal from Lewis Neil. Morven Wood restored Pitsligo’s lead before Ryan Christie made sure of all three points for the away side with a goal just before the end.

St. Drostans had Invercairn United in a league game and it was the visitors that kept up their good form of late scoring two goals without reply. Both goals came from striker Jamie Martin. They now go top equal with Bellslea and Clinton in the league table.

In the quarter-final of the Victoria Coaches Cup, Clinton Thistle had home advantage over St. Combs and it ended with the home side progressing to the semi-final winning by the odd goal in three. The home scorers were Peter Humphries and Simon Whyte and for the away side was Neil Taylor.

The last quarter-final of the Victoria Coaches Cup was between Faithlie United and Cheers with the winners earning a home tie in the semis. It ended in a 4-1 win for the home side.

Panasonic Tavern faced Portsoy in the quarter-final of the Highland Cup and it ended with a poor Panasonic performance losing by 4-0.
