Aberdeen side Banks O’Dee Albion scored an incredible haul of goals to reach the 2014-15 Trans World Soccer Scottish Youth FA Cup final after beating Lanarkshire opponents Mill United comprehensively in a one-sided match at Peterculter’s Crombie Park.
It was Albion who took the lead as a cutback found Joseph Wilson who slotted home inside the box to give his side an early lead on a fine spring day in the north-east.
Minutes later Albion doubled their advantage as Dan Morrice found the back of the net with a good finish after good build-up play.
Mill United who made the long journey northwards to Aberdeen from Hamilton nearly pulled one back as a free kick found Ryan O’Neil whose half-volley from the left side of the box hit the post before going out for a goal kick.
The Lanarkshire side then had two opportunities to pull one back as Jamie McVey’s low shot from within the box went just wide, then Kathleen McGovern’s long range shot from outside the box dipped goalwards but was saved by the Albion goalkeeper.
In first half stoppage time Albion made it 3-0 as a ball in from the right found Reece Wilson who scored a fantastic goal to give his side a three goal lead.

Ness got his hat-trick as a corner was delivered from the left hand side and Ness was there to head home to score a clinical hat trick inside an incredible nine minute spell.
It was raining goals in this match and Albion scored again as a good pass found Dan Morrice who slotted home with a low shot from the right of the box to score his second and his team’s seventh goal of the match.
Albion were turning on the style and made it 8-0 as Ness’ ball into the box from the left hand side was finished off by Morrice to complete his hat-trick.
Despite the score Mill United looked to pull one back and Dylan MacArthur’s pass found O’Neil whose shot was saved.
Albion made it 9-0 as Joseph Wilson’s ball in from the left was finished off by Ruben Whitelaw to score the goal’s ninth goal of the match.
