Half time 0 v 0.

With only 5 minutes left the game went from end to end but Demi took the ball from inside her own half passed 3 defenders and scored the winner with great strike from outside the box – 3 v 2 with 1 minute .
Final Score Alford 3 v 2 Banchory.
Semi Final will be either Ellon or Banff.
