Stonehaven Ladies first game of 2015 was against last season Division Two north champions, Deevale LFC.
With the sun shining at Maryculter, both teams went out for a win to progress to the next round.
The game kicked off with Stonehaven having the best of the first 20 minutes, without creating many clear cut chances.
Deevale had a great chance to take the lead with a free-kick from just outside the box, with the ball going into the top left hand corner Paterson got her right hand to it to knock it away for a corner.
Stonehaven started the second half well with a cracking corner swung in by Gordon met by C.Bowie at the front post to knock it in.
Deevale made a few changes but the Stonehaven defence was working well.
In the final five minutes, Stonehaven pushed themselves for a second goal with Kennedy coming on for Penny.
Kennedy had a chance to close the game but just shot wide with inches to spare.
Team lineup: Paterson, C.Bowie, Townsend, Campbell, Urquhart, Gordon, Gauld, McBay, Masson, Penny, E.Bowie. Subs - Kennedy, Jamieson, McMahon.
