A nice bright crisp day in Deveronvale and the game has just kicked off at Princess Royal Park.
Deveronvale have made the better start to the game with Mike Ewen giving them the lead in 5 minutes after a bad defensive pass-back error sees him presented un-marked with the ball, and he applies a clinical finish.
1 - 0
5 minutes later and Vale double their advantage, this time Mark Smith gets in on the action, heading home at the back post from a ball chipped in by Mike McKenzie.
2 - 0
Academy as yet have not threaten the Vale goal.
20 minutes and David Cowie gets free in the Vale box, but the ball is nipped from his toes just as he is ready to shoot.
Half Time 2 - 0
55 minutes played and Vale are awarded a free-kick 20 yards from goal. Mike McKenzie takes the kick and scores.
3 - 0
75 minutes and Peter Make a change with young Shane Sutherland coming on for Gary Weir. Shane is not long on the park before he has a sniff at goal. He makes good room for himself in front of a Vale defender, but unfortunately his shot whistled past the post.
5 minutes left and Vale are looking comfortable, controlling the game and there looks no way back for Academy. Bryan McKiddie comes on for Gary Farquhar.
Last minute of the game and a Richard Macadie shot can only be parried by keeper Blanchard. Craig Shearer is on-hand to slot home from close range.
3 - 1
Full Time 3 - 1
