With Dundee not playing on Friday they knew if they won today they’d be guaranteed a place in Saturday’s final. They did just that, seeing off Albion BC by a convincing 8-1 scoreline.
The Tayside outfit had the first chance of the game when some great passing saw the ball land at the feet of Ross Cunningham on the edge of the box whose effort hit the post.
The Dark Blues were hungry for a goal and Cunningham tried a 35 yard free kick which was held by Reece Duncan in the Albion goal.
Dundee did get a goal when Scott Milne knocked a ball into Kyle Clark and the forward did the rest in knocking the ball past the hapless Duncan.
Scott Milne was then to turn from provider to goalscorer when he met a ball by Matthew Davidson and sprung himself into the penalty area for the Dee's second of the afternoon.
It was deja vu minutes later as Davidson set up Milne once again, for the striker to grab his second of the match.
In the 15th minute Albion had their first opportunity when a free kick sent in by Owen Purdie found Clark Scott, whose effort hit the side netting.
Both forwards were having a brilliant game for Dundee and a pass from Milne to Davidson had to be blocked by Kyle Willox and out for a Dundee corner.
Scott Milne then completed his hat trick with 12 minutes left of the half when he met a brilliant ball in from the right hand side by Davidson to put the Taysiders 4-0 up.
Dundee weren’t stopping there and they added a fifth before the break when a pinpoint ball in from Cunningham found Clark who placed it past Duncan.
Dundee remained sharp, still hungry for goals and got another when a ball by Cunningham to Clark who completed his hat-trick.
The second half was a lot more tighter than the first with Albion giving Dundee more of a battle and a cagey battle developing in midfield.
Albion then scored a consolation goal when Michael Phllipson was able to squeeze in a 30 yard shot past a stranded goalkeeper.
Callum Beattie was then next to try his luck in front of goal for Dundee. The Dark Blues played some exceptional football once again and Beattie received the ball from John Black before letting fly from 20 yards, but it went a whisker wide of the right hand post.
Black was the provider for Dundee’s seventh when he fed in Ben Mooney and from the same spot as Beattie's previous effort he managed to beat Duncan in the Albion goal.
The scoring was complete for Dundee when Cunningham’s cross was scrambled in by Paul Callaghan.
Dundee now can look forward to a day of rest before locking horns with Aberdeen in Saturday's final. Albion still have work to do to secure their place in the 3rd/4th place play-off.
