Dyce Astro was the venue when Bellfield Royals made the long journey from Kilmarnock leaving at 7:15am to try and take their place into the quarter-finals of the Scottish Cup.
 
Standing in their way was a Dyce side who have a 100% record in the league this season and won the domestic treble in the ADJFA last season. Bellfield are top of their respective league where as Dyce are level top in their league with Banks O’Dee Albion so an exciting game of football was to follow.
 
Dyce started the game on the front foot testing the opposition defence on a number of occasions however just couldn’t get the cutting edge required to open the scoring in this encounter.
 
The deadlock was open after 7 minutes and it was richly deserved as well. The ball came into the pathway of Reis Webster after an interchange of passes and the midfielder guided the ball into the top right hand corner past Max Halliday.
 
Bellfield knew they had to hit back and within 30 seconds of the hosts taking the lead, the Kilmarnock based outfit levelled it up with Rowan Taylor producing a curled shot which gave no chance to Harry Cowie.
 
It was the hosts who had the most possession and being more creative going forward on the ball. Dyce had a couple of chances courtesy of Kacper Lewecki which went straight at Halliday and then the goalkeeper denied an effort from Josh Byers.
 
Royals took the lead just before half time with Bradley Patterson getting himself on the score sheet in the 28th minute curling the ball past Cowie to put the Ayrshire outfit in front. Tough from a Dyce perspective however Royals with only 12 players available doing their coaches and parents proud.
A fiery half time team talk from Dyce seen them come out for the second half stronger and the attack line for the hosts looked a lot more active and sharp. Halliday in the Bellfield goal had to be alert to turn over a drive from Ethan Walker.
 
Dyce had a number of chances to get themselves level with Halliday producing a number of saves and shots going wide and over the bar and the home crowd were wondering if it was ever going to be their day however the home support stayed patient.
 
The hosts then created an interchange of passes and what led to it was Dyce getting that all important equaliser. A ball was threaded into Walker who guided the ball past the over worked Bellfield goalkeeper.
 
Dyce sensed they can go on and grab victory from this point and had a few golden chances with Lewecki coming close missing from a couple of yards out after a great ball in from Jay Stockton.
 
It was Dyce having a number of good opportunities however it wasn’t all one way traffic and at the other end, a great save from Cowie denied Lewis Baird the chance to put the Kilmarnock side back in front courtesy of a free kick from the midfielder.
 
Dyce took the lead with 5 minutes to go after a battle between Webster and Jamie Fowler and that paved the ball into the pathway of Dylan Cumming to volley home the winner. A great strike and a goal worthy of winning a Scottish Cup tie. After the goal, Dyce refrained from Bellfield getting control of the ball and referee Alan Cook blew full time on a great Scottish Cup tie.
 
Two even teams with Dyce just edging it over the 70 minutes with Bellfield having a 4 hour bus journey probably taking its toll on them. Dyce reached the 5th round stage last season so they have went a stage further where as Bellfield got knocked out in the first round last season so they have made massive strides.

Jamie Clark, Dyce BC Under 14s manager said "Bellfield took their chances in the first half and scored two cracking goals, in the second half we wanted the boys to go out and give an account of themselves in the game.

"At the end of the day it's goals that count not how many shots you have on goal and we were more clinical in the 2nd half.

"It's brillant that two teams from the ADJFA will be in the quarter-finals, the Scottish Cup this year was all about us trying to do better than what we did last year and we have done that so it's good for the boys."
