(Af­ter ex­tra time – Aber­dour won 2-1 on penal­ties)

It took two hours and a penalty shoot- out to sep­a­rate the Aber­dour colts and the Kyles Ath­letic colts at Sil­ver Sands.

Kyles started well but it was Aber­dour who went in front through Harry Simp­kins. How­ever, goals from Cairn Lim­bert and Mal­colm Mac­Fadyen had Kyles 2-1 in front af­ter an hour.

Aber­dour sub­sti­tute Jamie An­der­son took the tie to ex­tra-time with a goal not long af­ter com­ing on.

A Chris Bow­er­man shot from dis­tance bounced into the net to the de­light of the home fans with just four min­utes of ex­tra-time re­main­ing. Kyles fought back though and Craig Martin net­ted fol­low­ing a goal­mouth scram­ble to make it 3-3 so ref­eree Euan Pear­son took the tie to a penalty shoot- out.

Both teams failed to con­vert their first three penal­ties and it was 1-1 af­ter 10 spot-hits. The out­come went to sud­den- death. Kyles then missed from the spot and Sam Evans took ad­van­tage to send his penalty low into the net to give Aber­dour a fa­mous win against higher league op­po­si­tion.
