Earlier in the day Dundee under 14s had put nine past Ross County, but not to be outdone, the under 16s inflicted their own 9-0 scoreline on Keith.
A fast-paced and fiery opening few minutes past without any real chances, as the teams tussled to gain control of the game. In the 11th minute though, Dundee made the breakthrough. Sievwright played in Sturrock, whose shot could only be parried by the keeper, and knocked in at the back post by Jamie McCabe.
The game was still fairly even at this point, and continued to be so up until Dundee grabbed their second in the 28th minute, a penalty dispatched by Callum Petrie after Snee had been brought down in the box.
Almost immediately after the restart Lee Cameron broke free down the left, cut inside and coolly slotted home for 3-0. The fourth came in the 37th minute, a superb curling effort from Ben Sievwright wide on the left.
A fifth was added right on half time as Kieran Sturrock raced down the right wing, worked his way into the box, and tucked his shot under the keeper into the net.
Four minutes into the second half number six arrived courtesy of Jamie McCabe who reacted quickest to pounce on a shot spilled by the Keith keeper.
Jordan Garden smashed home Dundee’s seventh from inside the box in the 65th minute, the first of what would be three goals in four minutes. The second was the result of some really nice passing football on the edge of the box which played in Christopher Snee one-on-one. Snee was the epitome of composure as he slotted effortlessly past the keeper.
Josh Skelly drilled in number nine from just inside the box 68th minute, and completed the scoring.
A very impressive and ruthless performance then from Dundee’s under 16s. Keith may feel the scoreline was a little harsh given that they held their own for long periods in the game, but there can be no doubt Dundee were deserving winners.
