Two braces from Jake Buirds and Ryan Park was enough for Westdyke to come out on top away to a much improved Dyce side. Westdyke deserved to win the game however rode their luck at times as well, with Westdyke goalkeeper Marc O’Donnell needing to be thanked for producing two penalty saves.
Dyce created an attack in the opening exchanges of the game through a Callum Nicol header which came to nothing, Westdyke broke quickly and found themselves a goal in front with the game two minutes old. A good ball came in which was met by Buirds who had an initial effort blocked, however the talented forward made no mistake with the rebound.
Andrew Buchan almost doubled the lead for Westdyke in the ninth minute, but a good save from Neish denied Buchan the chance to add to the tally.
The game wasn’t over by any stretch and Dyce had a great opportunity to level the score when they got themselves a penalty. A Jackson Pirie penalty went straight down the middle and saved by O'Donnell. O’Donnell’s save proved to be very important.
The visitors doubled their advantage after 21 minutes, Westdyke counter-attacked the Dyce backline and a good ball across goal found Buirds who tapped the ball home into an empty net to double the advantage.
Dyce got another penalty just before the interval with Callum Nicol this time on penalty duties to try and reduce the deficit from 12 yards, Nicol stepped up however, went down the middle again and O’Donnell, once again, saved it to ensure a clean sheet for him going into half time.
