It was a very overcast day at Garthdee Sports Centre when South East region under 16s made the journey to Aberdeen to face their North counterparts. An exciting game was in prospect with two evenly matched teams battling it out against each other.
Both teams started the game well with good passing football. The game was played on an all weather surface so it was the right type of pitch to play good passing football and even with a bit of drizzle in the sky it was a joy to watch in the opening exchanges of the game.
There was chances for both teams and it wouldn't be long until the 1st goal would be scored. North Region looked the more threatening out of the two teams. South East Region did have a good opportunity though courtesy of a Logan Cunningham free kick which went over the bar.
The opening goal was scored in the 28th minute after a great ball in from Gregor White was met by Westdykes Euan Walker who had an initial shot blocked by the opposition defence before it came to Banks O'Dee Albions James Connelly who rifled the ball into the net past Joe Russell.
It was a cold afternoon for many including the most enthusiastic of people who watch youth football and there was one more chance before the interval for the visitors through Connal Cormack whose effort went over after a 30 yard hit.
North just deserving of their lead at the interval and both teams taking the long walk to the changing rooms at half time to avoid the wind and rain that tropical Aberdeen has to offer.
