Dundee West picked up their first win of the season as they edged out Broughty Panthers. Three Panthers goals in four first half minutes turned the game on its head, but Dundee West quickly drew level before finding the net three more times in the second half.

Broughty started the season with a win over Riverside, while a last-minute goal cost Dundee against Pitfour. It was Dundee West that made the best start and they saw Lewis Hutton’s strike blocked by Callum Livingston.

Hutton did have the ball in the net after 15 minutes, but the goal was ruled off for offside. With 20 minutes gone, Dundee West did open the scoring.

Aiden Hutton delivered a free kick from the left and the ball eventually broke for Lewis Hutton, who swept the ball home from close range.

Dundee West quickly doubled their lead when Lewis Hutton’s pressure caused a mix up in the Broughty backline, which allowed Ryley Duncan to benefit by lifting the ball into the empty net.

Lewis Thomson’s volley was tipped over the bar by Wilson Price before Duncan bundled over in the box and the referee pointed to the spot. Cavan McLaren stepped up and blazed his penalty over the bar.

The penalty miss sparked Broughty into life and they halved the deficit when Haaris Ahmed beat Lee Clark to a long ball, powered his way into the box and slotted the ball past Michael Smith after 34 minutes.

Broughty wasted no time finding the equaliser as Finlay Kenyon found Liam Jones, who manged to bring the ball under control in the box and poke it home from close range.

The comeback was completed when Ahmed latched onto another long ball and finished past Smith from close range.

There was one more twist left before the referee brought the half to a close. Thomson delivered a cross to the back post for Luke Miller, who steered a header past Price to bring Dundee West level.

Sam Grimes called Dundee West’s new goalkeeper Charlie Greenshields into action with a close-range header, while McLaren tested Price with a free kick.

15 minutes into the second half, Dundee West regained the lead. Miller found Duncan at the edge of the box, and he deceived Price with a reversed strike into the bottom corner from 20 yards.

Duncan went close to completing his hat trick with a strike from the edge of the box, but Dundee West did extend their lead when Lewis Hutton raced clear of the Broughty defence and coolly finished past Price.

The Broughty keeper kept out another effort from Duncan but was caught out by Miller in injury time when he found the net with a superb volley from the left touchline to complete the scoring.

Star Player
Broughty United Panthers
Dundee West
Haaris Ahmed - The Broughty man was full of running and was unplayable in moments of the first half and took both of his goals well.
Aiden Hutton - Dundee West's left back was full of running throughout the game, proving an effective option at both ends of the park.
Magic Moment
Broughty United Panthers
Dundee West
Ahmed's Second Goal - A fine run and cool finish that turned the game on its head.
Miller's Second Goal - Incredible vision from the forward to see the chance and even more incredible skill to put the ball in the net with his left foot.
