Dyce BC Whites welcomed Westdyke Thistle with both teams having a share of mixed results so far this season. It was Dyce who came out on top 6-1 after a magnificent second half performance against a Thistle outfit who didn't play badly, however were beaten by a more enthusiastic and energetic Blues side.

Both sides had chances in the opening exchanges of the game. Dyce had a free kick through Kai Muirhead which curled off the crossbar whilst Matthew Pirie was a strong positive for Thistle and a ball from Lewis Mutch found Pirie whose effort went straight at Wills.

Westdyke Thistle were given a penalty on 19 minutes and it was a fantastic penalty strike by Pirie to open the scoring, with the attacker powerfully hitting the penalty off the crossbar and into the roof of the net to put the visitors a goal to the good.

Before the interval, Dyce themselves were given a penalty after a pull back in the box. Up stepped Connor May who dispatched a fine penalty into the top left hand corner to guide the hosts level.

Dyce really turned on the style in the second half with the hosts taking advantage of some defensive lapses of concentration from Thistle. Three minutes after the interval, Dyce took the lead thanks to a fantastic free kick by Calum Wilson, which evaded the stranded Andrew Hunter into the roof of the net to put Whites in front.

It was 3-1 on 52 minutes with Toby Mitchell winning a battle with his Westdyke opponent before being released through on goal and Mitchell guided a fine effort into the back of the net to put the hosts in cruise control.

The hosts best period of the game came in the closing stages of this contest with three goals in five minutes. The first one, which was Dyce's fourth goal came after a lovely ball was played into Logan Jamieson and the talented player smashed the ball past Hunter.

Logan Jamieson was looking very hungry and a minute later he picked up a brace with a fantastic lob which gave Hunter no chance as the hosts well and truly turned on the style against Thistle.

Calum Wilson topped off a great performance with another good free kick which deflected off a Thistle player and into the net to complete a good day at the office for the hosts. Westdyke Thistle as mentioned, didn't look out of place in this game however came up against a pacy Dyce side.

Westdyke Thistle have picked up some big results already this term and will continue to pick up points in 2019. They will look to put this one to bed then rectify matters next year.
