DDYFA Results Round-Up 17/09/17

Written by 
This week saw all but one of the DDYFA teams return to league duty after their Scottish Cup exploits. In the U13 league, all three of the leagues got underway, there was a rematch of last year’s Dundee West Anniversary Cup final as Ferry hosted Pitfour, and in the U17 Maryfield league, Celtic boys faced off against Dundee Rangers.

Here’s how the action went down:
Pitfour started the Café Royal League with a 7-4 win over Carnoustie Panmure. The visitors lost their 100% start to the season, with their goals coming from Scott Hamilton, Harrison Whittet and a Jack Chalmers double.
One team that maintained their 100% record was Fairmuir. Stuart Heenan was on target seven times for them, as they blew away Broughty Pumas.

Ferry Athletic picked up a 1-0 win over Maryfield thanks to Will Hanbury’s goal.

In the J Clenaghan League, Brechin came from behind twice to take a point from Newtyle. Cayden Carroll twice put the hosts ahead.

In the P Gibson League, Dundee West Royals started with 6-1 win over Dundee Sporting Club. Mylo McDonald, Jamie Stewart and Aiden Davidson all scored twice for the Charlotte Street side. 
ACSC are the first DDYFA team in Round Three of the Scottish Cup after they beat Carnoustie 7-1. Kaden Houghton grabbed a hat trick, with Kyle Yule, Bobby Fleming, Alex Davidson and Shay McGiveney also on target. Conor Bisgrove provided the Carnoustie goal with a free kick.

This week’s first featured match saw Dundee West travel to Dawson Park to take on Ferry Athletic.
Dundee West were searching for their first win in the top flight, but found themselves 2-0 down inside 20 minutes. Owen Boath scored twice, first lifting the ball over Jordan Walker into the net, and secondly rolling a shot underneath the Dundee West keeper.

Cameron Blacklock’s goal five minutes after the restart gave Dundee West a lifeline, only for Jack Moir to put Ferry 3-1 up with a cool finish six minutes later.

Patrick Todd quickly reduced the deficit with a close-range finish from a corner, as Dundee West set up an intriguing final 20 minutes.

With seven minutes to go, Blacklock cannoned a shot against the bar, and the resulting counterattack saw Boath complete his hat trick, rounding Walker and shooting into the empty net.

Forfar picked up a 3-2 over Fairmuir in the DS Rennie League. Mathew Platt struck twice for Forfar in the first half, with Blair Quinn’s 25-yard wonder strike proving to be the difference between the sides. Mark Ross got the goals for Fairmuir.

Sam Ellis bagged a brace for Kirrie Thistle as they beat Brechin 4-0. Archie Mclean and Logan Richardson were also on target. Leon Winterton got a hat trick for Broughty United as they won 6-0 in Montrose.
In the Watson McInally League, St Murdochs came from 3-0 down to win 4-3 against Vale of Tay. Arron Cummings, Bryan Dalgetty and Fyndley Patterson levelled the tie, which was won thanks to a 30-yard free kick from Jimmy Stewart.

Riverside mounted a comeback of their own to maintain their unbeaten record. They fought back from 2-1 down against Maryfield to win 5-2. Oscar Hickey scored four times, and Jonah McCallum got his 14th goal of the season.

Matthew Murphy’s hat trick helped Arbroath Lads to a 7-1 win over Douglas. Josh Tutchenor scored twice, with Dylan Tulleth and Lewis Smith also on target.
This week’s second featured match saw Pitfour take on Ferry in a repeat of last season’s Dundee West Anniversary Cup final. Pitfour were victorious on that day, and have made a blistering start to the new campaign, finding the net over 50 times in the first six league games.

Despite Pitfour being the form side, they were slow out the traps, and fell behind after 10 minutes when Hari Caswell sent a dipping shot over Archie Kelly-Barton after 10 minutes.

Pitfour lost Kelly-Barton after 25 minutes when the goalkeeper became concussed, but rallied and managed to turn the game around with two goals just before half time.

Kai Finnie brought them level with a close-range finish from a corner, and Jordan Turnbull put them in front, drilling the ball home from a Finnie knockdown.

Ally Alcorn made it three for the champions with a simple header, before Kai Meldrum pulled one back for Ferry on the hour mark.

Alcorn struck again, tapping in after being denied initially by Hayden Church. There was still tome for one more goal as Matthew Younger headed home a corner in the closing minutes, but Pitfour held on to make it seven wins from seven matches.

Elsewhere in the G Taylor League, Nick Fletcher’s hat trick earned Dundee West a 3-2 win over Broughty Panthers. Ryan Carr and Liam Jones were on target for Broughty.

Broughty United earned a point after a thrilling 4-4 draw with Carnoustie. Lewis Sivewright scored twice for the hosts, with Connor McFarlane and Braden Batley also getting on the scoresheet.

Montrose got their first win of the season as they thrashed Dundee Thistle.

Arran Ferry added two more goals to his ever-increasing tally as Monifieth moved up to second in the table with a 5-2 win over Celtic Boys. Cody Louge got both goals for Celtic.

Riverside picked up a 4-2 win over Forfar. Dougray Smith bagged a brace, with Jack Kingston and Daniel Hart also on target.
Dryburgh Athletic moved to the top of the table with a 6-1 win over Scone Thistle. Two of their title rivals took points from each other as Fairmuir drew 3-3 with Jeanfield Blacks. Jake Grady, Fraser Nelson and Dylan Bonella were all on target for Fairmuir.

Ferry got their first win of the season as they thrashed Forfar 5-0 away from home. Goals from Louie Anderson, Louie Porter and Brandon Donnelly gave Ferry a 3-0 lead at half time, with Jake Stewart and Daniel Garamy adding further gloss to the scoreline in the second period.
Blairgowrie’s Alan Mattner got his sixth goal of the season, but couldn’t stop his side going down 3-2 to St Murdochs. Broughty United won 4-2 at home to St Andrews Colts.

In the W Mills League, Brechin City went down 6-1 against Dryburgh CC. Their goal was scored by Luca Foley. Zak Livie and Bryce Duff were on target for St Murdochs Colts, but couldn’t stop them losing 4-2 against Lincraig.

Liam Annan scored twice for Monifieth as they beat Forfar WE 6-0. Sean MacKinnon, Lewis Lawson, Ross McDowell and Greg Kemp also found the net. Connor Spence and Ross Anderson were amongst the scorers for Riverside as they beat Kirrie 3-1. Dundee Rangers picked up a 1-0 win over Dundee Thistle.
Celtic Boys picked up a convincing 6-1 win over Dundee Rangers. The result moved them into second place in the league table.

It was honours even as ACSC and Ferry played out a 3-3 draw, while Fairmuir suffered their third defeat in four games as they lost 4-3 to Kirrie. Ryan Cormack scored all four goals for the Angus side, eventually sealing the win with a last-minute penalty.

In the Bodycare Complimentary League, Craig Begg’s brace earned Partan Craig a 2-2 draw with Brechin City, while Dryburgh Athletic picked up an 8-5 win over Montrose.

Robbie Tait scored four times for Carnoustie as they came from a goal down to beat St Andrews Colts 6-1. Monifieth won 6-2 away to Forfar WE.
Fairmuir Violet returned to winning ways with a 7-3 win over Monifieth. Goals from Ryan McLaren, Ryan Scobbie, Errol Vella, Robbie Gallacher, Jaden Murphy, Jack Taylor and an own goal saw Fairmuir move to the top of the table. 

Stefan Brown was on target twice for Coupar Angus as they beat Kirrie 3-2. Ryan Robertson also found the net for the hosts.

Monifieth Tayside picked up their first win of the season as they won 4-1 against Brechin, while Dundee West suffered their first loss of the season as they went down 5-1 against Ferry at Charlotte Street.

There was a first win of the season for Letham Tangerines as they beat Forfar West End 3-2. Cammy Fraser and Callum Clark got the goals for the champions, but couldn’t prevent suffering their second loss of the campaign.
