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.
