Dundee United SC came from behind to advance past St Murdochs in the Tommy Clark Trophy. Second half goals from Sam Duncan, Kyle Campbell and Lewis Davidson helped DUSC to victory.
St Murdochs started brightly playing with the win at their backs, and they opened the scoring after six minutes when a corner broke to Fyndley Patterson, who drilled a low shot past Jamie Scott from 20 yards.
Scott kept out a strike from Kai Heenan before Tyler Horswood headed over from a corner shortly after as the visitors looked to add to their lead.
Lewis Davidson drove into the St Murdochs box before being denied by Brogan Beattie, while Glenn Peal fired over after turning at the edge of the box.
DUSC were growing into the game, and equalised when Derryn McGuire drilled a shot home from the edge of the box after pinball in the St Murdochs box.
The old cliché that you’re most vulnerable when you’ve just scored proved all too true for DUSC, as Jamie Crosby turned home Jamie McGhee’s cross a minute after the equaliser.
When Jimmy Stewart was downed in the box a moment later, St Murdochs had a golden opportunity to extend their lead. Patterson stepped up looking to add to his tally but saw the diving Scott keep out his spot kick.
Davidson went close to the equaliser for DUSC before Patterson rattled the crossbar with a thunderous strike just before half time.
