St Mirren found the net three times as they saw off Dundee in the Development League. Goals from Ryan Watters, Conor O’Keefe and Cameron Breadner secured all three points for the Buddies against a Dundee side that featured 11 players aged 17 or under.
Saints started the match on the front foot and with 12 minutes on the clock, opened the scoring. Ryan Watters drilling the ball past Calum Ferrie from the top of the box.
Dundee’s best half of the chance came after 18 minutes. Matty Henvey found Mark Smith with a clever flick, and the big striker saw his left foot drive beaten away by Saints stopper Chris Henry.
Saints were seeing most the ball, and would have extended their lead if not for some excellent goalkeeping from Ferrie. Kalvin Orsi was denied by the Dundee keeper before Watters follow up effort was cleared off the line by Matty Smyth.
Watters was then thwarted by Ferrie 60 seconds later before Orsi was again denied by the Dundee keeper nine minutes before the break.
