Thursday 24th November saw the U13 football team travel down to Cowdenbeath for their 3rd round fixture of the Scottish cup. The boys started slowly in the game,going down 2-0 early on,however, worked their way back into the game well and found themselves level at HT: 3-3. Shortly into the second half the boys put themselves ahead with a brilliantly worked goal. Unfortunately they did not capitalize on this advantage  though and Beath stuck a quick fire double past them to go ahead 5-4 with 5 minutes left on the clock. With seconds to go Tom Findlay struck a perfect free kick into the corner of the net to bring the game back level again at 5-5. Extra time saw the boys fall 2 goals behind from 2 corner plays in quick succession, a real blow to the team's hard work. The boys did mange to pull one back, but it was too late by then. The game finished 7-6 after extra time to Beath High School. Banchory U13 ultimately coming up just short, but an excellent effort shown by all none the less. The team's morale was brought back up by the stop at McDonald's, however,  on the way back to Banchory.
Scorers: Tom Findlay X4, Conor Sibson, Daniel Geddes
