Maud had Banchory St Ternan as visitors in a league game and the home side started brightly with both Cooper and Duguid having good chances. A minute later Cooper provided the cross and Smart came rushing in to score. Buchan in the away goals came to their rescue when a through ball left Duguid bearing down on goal but Buchan came out to block. A Thomson pass split the Banchory defence but Cooper made a hash of the chance. Good defending by Lawson prevented Colbert getting his shot away inside the box. Banchory drew level with their first real attack of the game with Reid providing the pass for Colbert to score from inside the 6 yard box. Duguid was again denied a goal with Buchan saving but Maud’s next attack saw Smart on the right and he sent in a brilliant cross which Duguid rose high to head home. Fyfe made 2 vital stops from shots from Buglass and then Close before half time.

HT 2 - 1

Duguid drove past 2 players but Buchan came out to block the striker’s shot. Cooper was played in on goal but he blazed over the bar. Duguid had a shot which was just wide of the post. Colbert created a chance for himself but blazed wide. A good move by Maud down the left and it ended with Buchan making a save at his near post from a cross in by Ritchie. A Long ball forward from Fyfe found Smart who bustled in between 2 defenders and slot home a third goal. Maud broke quickly and smart was bearing down on goal and he unselfishly drew the keeper and past sideways to Ethan Grant to slot home a fourth goal and end the scoring. This was a fine win for Maud picking up 3 points in the league just ahead of the Cup Final next week.

Maud next match is against Dyce on Sunday 22 October with a 2pm ko at Longside in the Grill League Cup Final.
