Adverse weather conditions made play difficult as both teams faced the wind and rain on a cold Sunday afternoon.

Dundee West had much of the initial posession in the opening minutes of the match with Brian Harris creating two good goal scoring opportunities but were well defended by the DUSC defence. 

Conner McHugh of United had their first chance on goal when he received a knock on from a throw in. His diverted run and shot on goal agonisingly went wide of the post.

On 11 minutes Dundee West's Jaden Ferguson scored the opening goal of the match with a great strike high past keeper Leighton Quinn who could do absolutely nothing to prevent it from veering into the net.

The match was very evenly balanced and there was an almighty tussle for posession in the heart of midfield.

Jaden Ferguson was attacking relentlessly and paramount in West's dominance. He almost created another chance to double West's lead. Good defending from Reece Muir saw off any potential threat and the defenders input in the game was integral throughout.

Dundee West were becoming more dominant but excellent counter attacking and build up play by the opposition saw Kieren Barron pass to Reece Muir but his cross went frustratingly out of play. The equaliser came in the match after 26 minutes, when Barron took on the ball from Rory Jagusinski and drove a low shot past keeper Callum Ross to make it 1-1 and half time looming.

Into the second half and United goalkeeper Leighton Quinn found himself highly in demand with a couple of chances gone a begging from a powerful shot by Luki Kowalski and a further Brian Harris header when a cross came in by Jaden Ferguson.DUSC soon began to retaliate and a couple of questionable off sides squandered any chance of taking the lead.

Excellent intervention and organisation, particulary by West's Ben Tolmie saw off any real threat.The highlight of the match came from a superb point blank save from Quinn when a powerful strike came from Daniel Ogilvie in search of  West taking the lead.

This was becoming anyone's match for the taking and tired legs saw substitutions for United, with Steff Mohammed and Deano Fowlis replacing Luke Owens and Connor McHugh on 50 minutes.

United continued to pressurise and eventually their persistence paid off when Ben Ogilvie received a pass into the box from Barron and he casually knocked the ball to make it 2-1 with 10 minutes to go. Corner kicks and free kicks were few and far between and they didn't come to much.

The match was officially secured when a corner by Muir flicked on by Fowlis which fell into the path of Ryan Smith who was gifted with an easy finish 8 yards out.


This was a hard fought match with both sides defending and attacking well. Every team member was committed and showed up well.

Ferguson's goal, the opening of the match, a fierce strike. His overall creativity from midfield was integral in West's chances.
A superb point blank save from Leighton Quinn prevented Ferguson's and Dundee West's second to take the lead.
