Colony Park under seventeen's were up against Huntly in one of the few matches to go ahead this weekend in the North region. The wind was howling down the pitch and there were flurries of snow which made it very difficult for both sides.
With the wind in their backs for the first half Colony struggled to make any openings and fell behind midway through the half after a well worked passing move from Huntly, which was executed brilliantly.
However with only seven minutes left in the half Colony equalised when Mike Donaldson drilled in a cross from the bye line for Fraser Gill to push home. 
This gave Colony a lift and just before the half time whistle they took the lead when Ally Blair played in Craig Mackie and his low cross was tapped in on the line by Rhu Cole, 2-1.
Half Time : Colony Park 2-1 Huntly
The second half couldn't have started worse for Colony when, after a silly foul, Huntly were awarded a free kick, from which they scored.  
The weather continued to play a part in the match and the referee talked to both captains about ending the match early, but a lull in the wind and snow allowed the game to finish.
A good passing move from the right involving Gill and Dale Rennie found Josh Proud of Colony Park, who was free inside the box and he finished well to seal the result for Colony with fifteen minutes to go. 
Full Time : Colony Park 3-2 Huntly
