U14's Dundee West Anniversary Cup Semi-Final
20 February 2014
The teams lined up with Dundee Celtic having the wind behind them attacking the Montrose goal in the first half. It forced them to make positional changes early on to steady the back line after Celtic had the early pressure. 
Celtic had some decent chances in the 1st half, but Montrose keeper Marshall was making some good saves to keep them in the game. 
It appeared that Celtic had scored the first goal when they hit the bar and the rebound to fell to their player. Fortunately for Montrose the player was judged to have been in an offside position.   
Both teams were having chances and good spells of play between them, but the first half remained scoreless with the game evenly poised. 
Half Time: Celtic BC 0-0 Montrose FC
Montrose took an early lead in the second half when the ball was played across the goal for Aitken to slot home from a few yards out. A repeat of the goal he scored against the same team last season in Jubilee Cup Final. 
A good clean battle from both teams unfolded on a pitch that was heavy in areas but still produced some good football from both sides.
Celtic scored the equalising goal that resulted from a free kick just inside the Montrose half. A ball played in to the box for Wilson to put the ball in the Montrose net.
Celtic continued to push with their tails up. Montrose continued to stay firm and against Celtic pressure a number of corners which were well defended by Montrose.
Montrose took the lead again when the ball was slotted home, again from a few yards out by striker Hendry. 
Montrose had a few good chances in the later stage of the game and the game should have been put out of sight, but they just couldn't get the ball in the ball in the net.
The game finished with Montrose winning 2-1 against a really good Dundee Celtic side in a match that was played in good spirit.
Montrose now head to the final awaiting the winners of Fairmuir v DUSC game this weekend.    
Full Time: Celtic BC 1-2 Montrose FC
