With both teams still in contention to win the league, Paul Lawrie Foundation and Donside Juvenile FC faced each other at Shedocksley Sports Pavilion in what proved to be a tale of two halves. However it was Donside Juveniles who came out as victors with a 3-0 win, their goals scored by Tom Burns, Connor Cooper and Callum Insch.
Paul Lawrie mounted the first attack of the game with Jamie Sayers driving the ball forward but Donside goalkeeper, Ben Middleton, came out to tackle Sayers before he could take his shot.
They soon had another chance through a corner taken by Connor Strachan. Donside were able to clear the danger as the ball reached the edge of the box but Joy Banda was waiting further down the field, and drove the ball back towards the box. He shot from wide out to the right but Middleton kept the ball out.
Donside created a chance of their own with some interchanging play between Brodie Ross and Connor Cooper. The pair pressed forward before Ross shot from the just inside the box but Paul Lawrie goalkeeper Archie Coueslant pushed it wide.
It was not long before Donside were trying again, with Liam Smith putting the ball through for Cooper, who shot from the edge of the box, but Paul Lawrie rallied their defence to deny the visitors their chance.
Paul Lawrie had another chance through Sayers as he used his pace to gain territory and beat several defenders but with noone to pass to, he was unable to take a shot at goal himself. Connor Strachan then pressed forward again for the home side but he was forced out of play, and the visitors were able to clear from the resulting corner.
Banda then created a fantastic chance for his side, pressing forward before putting the ball through for Connor Strachan, whose first time shot at the goal looked accurate but Middleton was able to push it wide and deny the chance.
Donside were then pressing forward again, with Ross taking several shots. From a throw in, Ross shot from the edge of the box but Coueslant pushed it wide. Moments later, he shot from the corner but failed to get the angle that he needed.
Play went back and forth between the two sides before Paul Lawrie were breaking again. Connor Strachan put the ball through for Connor Neaves, who chased it down with his opposite number Greg Smith hot on his tail but it was Middleton who reached the ball first to deny any score.
Connor Strachan then linked up with Banda to press forward but Donside rallied their defence to clear the danger and mount their own attack. Ross passed out wide to Callum Insch who shot from about 25 yards, but his shot was saved by Coueslant.
Donside had one last chance with a corner, taken by Tom Burns. The ball reached the box where Paul Lawrie defended well amidst great pressure from the visitors. Coueslant kicked the ball away and Ross shot from 30 yards but it was wide of the net and the half came to an end with no score.
