Campsie Black Watch
 vs
Dunbeth
 
 
 
U19's Trans World Soccer Scottish Cup
 
06 September 2014
 
 
 
The first round of the Scottish cup at U19 level produced a cup tie between one of the favourites in Campsie Black Watch and Dunbeth FC from Coatbridge. This tie proved to be a thriller that went right down to the wire and that had a little bit of everything in it. 
 
The game kicked off and it was clear that the away side did not care about reputations and went on the attack from the first minute. The ball broke to Dunbeths’ Paul Ross Caughey who from 25 yards out, smashed the ball into the bottom right hand corner giving the diving Campsie goalkeeper no chance. 
 
The good start from the away side seemed to settle them down better than the home side and for the first 20 minutes they stroked the ball effortlessly around in the midfield. 
 
However, this was not a one sided affair by any means and Campsie almost equalised in the 26th minute when their forward pounced on an error by the Dunbeth defence but found Dunbeth goalkeeper Quigley in fine form. 
 
Only two minutes later, Campsie found themselves level when a shot from just inside the box was saved again by Quigley only to find the Campsie forward reacting quickest. 
 
Instead of buckling under the pressure from Campsie, the young Coatbridge side were determined not to be overawed and went on the attack right away and from their attack were awarded a free kick 20 yards out, directly in line with the goal. 
 
Up stepped Caughey to fire the ball home via a deflection from the wall to send Dunbeth 2-1 up. 
 
This was a right old cup tie, it was end to end and it was Campsie’s turn to have a shot on goal. Only this time it was from a penalty kick given for McAllister pulling the Campsie winger back, penalty awarded. During the protests, McAllister was booked for his troubles. 
 
From the penalty Matthew Quigley made a fine save to keep the Dunbeth in the lead going in to the break. 
 
Half Time: Campsie Black Watch 1-2 Dunbeth
 
Into the second half and out came Campsie from the blocks, loads of pressure from the home team and again Dunbeth Goalkeeper was brought into action to save with his feet from the advancing Campsie striker.
 
With some fine play on the left from Pryce, the away side nearly made it 3-1 when a great delivery found the Dunbeth Striker in a great position, only to see his header rattle off the bar.
 
But Caughey was not to be denied his hat trick and when a corner came in from the right the ball broke to him and he smashed the ball home from 10 yards to double the Dunbeth lead.
 
This showed the difference between the two teams, Dunbeth were taking their chances and Campsie wasting theirs.
 
However with 25 minutes to go Campsie were awarded a corner and from the resulting corner the home side got right back in the game with a bullet header which gave the keeper no chance.
 
Following the goal, it was all one way traffic and ball after ball was being put into the away sides box and it was only due to some resolute defending, good goalkeeping and some really good fortune that meant Dunbeth kept their lead. With 5 minutes to go a rare breakaway from Dunbeth saw Holmes break free and with only the keeper to beet fired his shot tamely wide.
 
This would have given Dunbeth some breathing space but it just wasn’t to be. With the last couple of minutes to go it was relentless pressure on the away defence but after all their hard work an endeavour they managed to hold on for a memorable 3-2 victory and a place in the second round away to Larkhall Utd. 
 
Full Time: Campsie Black Watch 2-3 Dunbeth
 
Another great advert for football in this great encounter. Incredible fighting spirit shown by both teams but Dunbeth done well to hold on for the win and to progress in to the next round.
