Goals from Charlie Massie and Jack Moir handed Ferry Athletic their first win of the season against Dundee West. The hosts saw Kyler Van Der Toorn’s first half penalty kept out by Lewis Burns before Ferry struck in the second half.

Both sides were looking for their first points of the season after opening day defeats, and it was Ferry that created the first chance of the game when Jacob Sharpe released Owen Boath, but he didn’t connect with his strike allowing Dundee West keeper Jordan Walker to make an easy save.

The opening stages of the match were played largely in the midfield, with neither side creating any clear-cut chances. Ferry had seen more of the ball, but it was Dundee West that had the game’s best chance when Finlay Taylor was bundled over inside the box.

Kyler Van Der Toorn stepped up and saw his penalty pushed away by the diving Lewis Burns, who spread himself well to keep out Van Der Toorn’s follow up effort.

Ferry went close to the opener when a corner fell for Liam Scott, who saw his effort blocked by Cayden Smith. Scott went close with an effort moments later, but the sides went off level at the break.

After an underwhelming first half showing, Ferry looked sharp early in the second half, and broke the deadlock after 51 minutes. Scott drove into the Dundee West box and saw his strike pushed away by Walker, but the ball fell kindly for Charlie Massie who forced the rebound into the net.

Sharpe was denied by the post after a surging run as Ferry looked to extend their lead, which the did just after the hour mark when Jack Moir smashed in a free kick from 25 yards.

Struan Kier went close to adding a third for Ferry in the closing stages when he ran with the ball from his defensive third into the Dundee West box, but his strike was blocked by Smith.
