Jake Shaw’s hat trick helped Dundee United SC advance to the quarter finals of the Reilly Falconer Cup at the expense of highflying Broughty Panthers.

Broughty came into the game top of the Watson McInally League, while DUSC were winless in the top flight and it was the visitors that looked to seize the initiative in the opening stages.

Jackson Hendry saw an effort blocked in the opening minute before Haydn Farningham turned the ball over from the resulting corner. Hendry was sent through on goal shortly after, only to be denied by Alister Brown.

DUSC’s first chance fell to Jake Shaw, who saw his shot held by Nathan McDermott.

After a rip-roaring start to the game, both sides began to cancel each other out meaning clear cut chances were few and far between.

Hendry smacked a volley wide from the edge of the box before DUSC opened the scoring through Logan Farquharson, who found the net with a low finish.

Broughty were nearly level moments later when the ball fell to Robbie Stark, but he could only fire the ball against the post.

It would prove to be a costly miss as DUSC doubled their advantage through Taylor Carson. The midfielder burst through on goal and fired the ball past McDermott.
Things got better for DUSC when Farquharson went through and netted his second shortly after.

A minute later, Carson’s corner was met by Shaw, who headed the ball in from close range to give DUSC a four-goal advantage.

Broughty were handed a lifeline in first half injury time when Nairn Dailly’s pass back to Brown was misjudged by the keeper, allowing the ball to roll into the net.

Buoyed by the own goal, Broughty started the second half quickly, with Hendry and Stark both denied by Brown early in the second half.

At the other end, Finlay Turner’s chip was kept out by McDermott as DUSC looked to put the game to bed.

After DUSC’s first half goal spree, Broughty hit twice in two minutes as they looked to pull off the most unlikely of comebacks. Hendry’s bouncing free kick was saved onto the bar by Brown, who saw the ball spin into the path of Stark, who bundled it over the line.

Seconds later, Stark was played in by Reece Rodger, and made no mistake with a cool finish to reduce the deficit further.

With the momentum appearing to swing in Broughty’s favour, DUSC struck again when Shaw clipped the ball past McDermott to put DUSC further ahead.

The hosts weren’t finished there as Turner lashed the ball across McDermott from inside the box. Shaw completed the scoring and his hat trick on the hour mark when he lifted the ball over McDermott to seal DUSC’s passage to the next round.
