It was third time lucky in Dyce when the Aberdeen side welcomed Dundee outfit Ferry Athletic with both sides having a good start to the season and a good competitive cup tie was in store, for the winners a trip to Largs was the prize to face Largs Spartans. 
Dyce were to dominate most of the proceedings in a game which was a backs to the wall display by Athletic, a through ball reached Reece Watt who tried a 20 yard drive towards goal which was saved by Robert Black in the visiting goal. 
It would be one way traffic throughout the 1st half with the hosts having another chance to get the breakthrough, Struan Linton played a through ball into Jamie Massie whose low effort towards goal from the edge of the box went straight at Black. 
Massie was then to have Dyce's best chance of the game after 25 minutes after he received a pass from Rory Brown and then did the rest in his quest to get his outfit the opener by unleashing a 20 yard effort towards goal which crashed off the crossbar. 
Before half time Dyce were being creative once again and their attacking prowess saw Ethan Smith force an effort over the bar, Massie then thought he put Dyce in front after he met a ball from Rory Brown however the referee disallowed it for a foul in the lead-up to the goal. This could have been vital as 30 seconds later, the referee blew for the interval.

The start of the second half began and it was all Dyce interaction again with Rory Brown playing in Massie who chipped the advancing Black however the lob lacked the angle required and it just went inches wide of the right hand post. 
Black in the Ferry goal was called into action once again in the 50th minute after a through ball from Brown found Brandon Reid who tried a 15 yard drive at goal however it was a shy effort in the end and the shot went straight at the Athletic keeper. 
Massie was desperate to get on the scoresheet and had another chance to do so 10 minutes from time after a great ball delivered in by Rory Brown however it went a whisker wide of the left hand post with the home spectators wondering if they were ever going to get a bit of luck. 
Ferry had a chance to snatch the game away from Dyce after a free kick 20 yards from goal had Matt Clark smothering over it and fancied a crack towards goal, his effort from 18 yards just went inches wide of the right hand post.

It was an even start to extra time with Ferry edging proceedings at the start and got themselves a penalty with Dyce appealing saying the ball was outside the box when the challenge was made, Matt McKinnon was brought down by Owen Cassie and the referee pointed straight to the spot, up stepped Reece Lornie who slotted past Ross Mowatt.

Time was running for Dyce to rescue their Scottish Cup status and before the hosts were to get their luck, Struan Linton met a ball in by Brown to put his half volley over the bar.

Linton was bring the tie to penalty kicks with two minutes remaining after a corner came in by Brown which was met by Matthew Tough which found Linton who volleyed it past Black.

Onto the spot kicks and Lornie who scored to give his side the lead in extra time was 1st to step up and saw his kick saved by Mowatt.

A lot of twists and turns were to follow and Bradley Duffs penalty for Ferry was to be vital before Black saved Dyces reply to give Athletic progression.

Rory Brown produced problems for the opposition defence and put in some really good balls.
Robert Black. No debate for this award. Saved a couple of penalties and also had a string of saves to keep the scoreline blank.
Magic Moment

The equaliser for Dyce through Linton saw all the previous frustration forgotten about in a moment of glory.
