A five star display from Northstar Orange was enough for the Aberdeen side to win the C League Section one. In the regional trophy at the start of the season, Orange had Cove and Peterhead in their group, Cove are Scottish Cup finalists and Peterhead are currently 2nd in the B league so they were in a strong league, however they have taken it in their stride and have achieved promotion.
Newmachar started the game the better side with Northstar Orange slightly disorganized. Niall Brown was first to test the Orange backline for the hosts however his tame effort went straight to Archie Stephen. Niall McPherson then had a free kick which Stephen dealt with well.
Northstar Orange's first shot on target resulted in the visitors breaking the deadlock after 18 minutes when Jay Taylor Donald played in Conal Cheshire who half volleyed a fine effort low and hard into the back of the net to set the scene in this contest.
Cheshire should have gotten a second 10 minutes before the interval for the visitors when he rounded Newmachar goalkeeper Matthew Cook, however the Newmachar defence blocked his goal bound effort. There was very little to separate the teams going into half time.
