A hat-trick from Adam Harper, a double from Andrew Simmond and a Cole Goodwin strike ensured that Colony Park beat Middlefield Wasps 6-2 in a high scoring Soccerworld League A match at Inverurie’s Davidson Park on a fine spring day.
It was the visitors Middlefield who had the game’s first opportunity as Jack Burnett’s long range free kick went over the crossbar.
Colony’s first chance of the match came as a great run down the right hand side by Simmond saw himself test Middlefield goalkeeper Sean Paterson with a shot that was saved with the rebound from Harper going over the crossbar.
Minutes later Harper got his goal as he tapped the ball into an empty net to give Colony Park a one goal lead.
Colony continued to press and a low William Hutchison effort from inside the right of the box was well saved by Paterson in the away goal.
Middlefield were awarded a penalty and Cameron Bisset converted from the spot with a low drive to the right to equalise for his side.
Colony regained their advantage as Harper scored his and his side’s second of the game with a powerful shot from the left hand side of the box to make it 2-1 to the hosts.
Five minutes later Colony made it 3-1 as Cole Goodwin took a touch and slotted home with a low effort to double his side’s lead.

Colony did make it 4-1 as Goodwin’s corner from the left found Simmond who took a touch before shooting home into the net.
Middlefield looked to pull one back and a mazy run by Burnett saw him position himself to shoot in the right side of the box and his effort went narrowly wide of the target.
Colony made it 5-1 as Middleton saved a shot from Harper with the striker netting his hat-trick by scoring the rebound from a narrow angle in the left hand side of the box.
Colony netted their sixth goal of the match as a ball in from the right was headed on by Harper which found Simmond who finished off the move.
Middlefield pulled one back as a corner from the right hand side saw the ball staying in the box with Burnett finishing it off.
