Dyce BC Blues booked their place in the next round of the Under 13s Regional Cup with a 3-1 win over East End Lewis United, however Dyce were made to work very hard for the result which puts them into the quarter-finals with a home tie against Banchory.

East End were set up in a way to combat the threat that Dyce had, however also had enough about them to commit attacks. The visitors had a good chance after just five minutes, a ball by Patrikas Naruskevicius made it's way into Noah Benshabat, however the talented attackers effort went wide of the left hand post.

Dyce grew into the game as the half progressed, however there were no clear cut openings from either side and both sides deserve credit for not getting frustrated at the lack of chances available. Lewis are currently second bottom in the A League however they showed a performance which suggests they are in the wrong position.

Lewis were given a penalty on 26 minutes after Connor Newlands was bundled over inside the penalty box. Up stepped Junior Emea who slotted home a cool penalty past Sam Inglis, dispatching the spot-kick into the bottom left hand corner to give East End the lead. Unexpected but deserved from an Lewis point of view.

The lead only lasted three minutes however, as Dyce showed an immediate intent to get themselves back level and after a few quick attacks, on 29 minutes, they saw an opening in the Lewis rearguard and a Miller Keir ball found Ethan Sutherland, who knocked home a fine finish into the bottom left hand corner beyond Ryan Smith to guide the Blues level.

East End Lewis continued to play some good football in the second half, with the visitors continuing to have shots at the Dyce goal. A good effort by Emea was tipped over the bar by Inglis in the Dyce goal.

On 42 minutes, it was 2-1 with Dyce producing a good move, argubaly one of the best in the match with Keir playing a fantastic ball for Owen Townend to tap the ball into an empty net to give the Blues the lead.

Sam Burnett had a good individual performance for the visitors and he tried very hard to get East End back on level terms with a couple of efforts, the first one being a shot straight at Inglis before a curling effort from the edge of the box smacked off the crossbar before going over.

Dyce then produced a breakaway which led to the third goal for the hosts. The ball came to Miller Keir and the forward completed the breakaway by producing a fantastic finish beyond Smith to complete the job for the Blues.

A good, battling game of football with Dyce just edging proceedings over the piece, however Lewis made it hard for the hosts and as stated, they are in a false position in the A League table. This was a break from league action for both teams however Dyce and East End will be looking to get more points on the board in 2019.
