A good performance from Ellon Academy was enough for the school to take home two trophies against a Banchory Academy side who did well in the first half however were brushed away in the second half. It was a lovely night at Davidson Park, Longside with a good crowd turning out for the match. A 14 minute hat-trick from Ruairidh Smith was the icing on the cake for Ellon.
Ellon clinched the Aberdeenshire League on Tuesday night with a win over Alford Academy and they kept the momentum going.
Banchory had the better chances in the opening exchanges of the game, Tom Findlay broke past the Ellon defence before his shot was denied by Liam Gibb in the Ellon goal from the edge of the box.
The Deeside school threatened again with a corner kick which was met by Daniel Geddes who sent his header wide of the left hand post. Banchory were enjoying some good opportunities, however were not clinical in front of goal.
Ellon took the lead after 27 minutes, a good ball came into the danger zone which was met by Connor Grant and from six yards out, Grant guided the ball into the back of the net to give Ellon the impetus heading into half time. It was a good time to get a goal with very little between the teams up to this point.
