The last 16 of the Scottish Cup took place this weekend with Deveronvale welcoming central belt outfit Wolves. Both sides have had respectable starts to the season. Vale have had a couple of stunning results including knocking out fellow league rivals Dyce out of the cup away from home winning 4-1. Wolves got warmed up for this tie with victories over Harmony Row and Celtic BC who are two cracking teams.


Portsoy is a wee town on the Moray coast which holds the popular Scottish Traditional Boats Festival annually however the big event in Portsoy this weekend was this Scottish Cup tie. A lot of the home punters noticed that Wolves were a very good team and are also in the same league as Cleland who the Banffers overcame 4-2 in the last round to progress.


It was Deveronvale who started the better and were the side who documented that they had the more attacking intent and it was the Banffers who earned the rewards after the first ten minutes. Wolves hit Celtic BC for eight just a fortnight ago and the hosts will have been pleased with the way that they had started the game.


After that point though, Wolves started to come into the game a little bit more and registered their first shot on goal in the 14th minute with a Ben McKee effort which was held by Logan Golias in the Vale goal.


In the 26th minute, Wolves took the lead, a through ball found it's way into Micka Welridge who rounded Golias and finished. Wolves wanted to get their gifts delivered before going empty-handed.

Vale coach Fergus Beaton would have probably have put an extra bit of motivation into his Deveronvale young guns and they came out firing all cylinders at the start of the second period and they had a golden chance to get an equaliser after a great ball came in from Neil Gillies which was met by Caden Beaton however it was met by the goalkeeper.


The second period was to be a repeat of the first period with Vale playing some good football early on and Wolves starting to get to grips with it later on. Eleven minutes into the half and Wolves got a penalty. It was taken by Myles McLeish who aimed to put his penalty down the middle however Golias got down to produce a good stop and keep his outfit in the game.


With time running out, the next goal was definitely going to be crucial and it went to the visitors after a through ball found Sam Ghoul who drilled the ball home past Golias. Some of the Vale support had appealed for offside however referee Ewan Forbes drove those claims away and the goal stood.


It was probably an important time for Wolves to grab that second goal and they made sure their place in the last 8 was confirmed after a short pass from Tommy Wilson found Paton who then only had one find on his mind and that was to find the top right hand corner which he did so with ease. It was the goal of the game and definitely a good strike to seal the CSFA outfit's progression in the Scottish Cup.

Caden Beaton: A debatable choice in some ways however Caden got passed defenders with ease and involved other players at Vale in the game as well.
Ben McKee; It's important that teams score goals which lead you on towards victory but it's important that you defend at the same time and I look no further than Ben who was a leader in the heart of Wolves's defence.
Magic Moment
Wolves BC
Vale's ability to keep on going, the banffers had a couple of chances at 1-0 Wolves and if they took them then it would have been a different story.
Wolves's 3rd goal, a great strike from Kane Paton
