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.
