Dyce secured a place in the Winton Trophy cup final at a cold and windy Dyce astroturf where they will play Sunnybank Elite.

Cove had the first chance in the second minute when a ball crossed in from Coves Anton Chauvin which was met well by the right foot of his team mate Charlie Rothnie but was well saved by Dyce Goalkeeper Grant Moroney.

One minute later, a long range effort from 25 yards from Coves Josh Robb went blazing over the bar.

In the 14th minute Dyce’s first opportunity came when Max Cheung blasted a shot over the bar following a neat through ball from Nogosa Uwaiae.

The final opportunity of the fairly dry of chances first half came when a shot was taken from just inside the box by Coves Lucas Whyte which was saved by Dyce keeper Moroney.

Half time came and went and with it came a tactical goalkeeper change which saw Lewis Munro enter the match replacing Moroney for Dyce, in the 37th minute, a cross from Coves Rothnie was met by Whyte and forced a good save from Munro.

Five minutes later, a through ball from Dyce’s Clark Sharp arrived at Uwaiae who squared the ball, but it was deflected into the keepers midriff.

In the 48th minute, a well struck shot from Dyce’s Sharp was well saved and parried out for a corner. The resulting corner was punched clear by Cove keeper Lloyd Sharp.

Cove then enjoyed a flurry of chances and only three minutes later, a good ball from Coves Josh Robb was laid off from Rothnie to Kasen Seed who dragged his shot wide.

In the 62nd minute, Cove had a fantastic chance when tricky footwork and skills from Mark Scott saw his shot go narrowly wide.

In the final minute of the 70, a chance from 12 yards came as the ball was played into Robbs path but his shot trickled wide, nothing to seperate the teams after 70 minutes and it was off to extra time.

The game went into extra time and in the first minute of the extra period Dyce’s Uwaiae twisted and turned his way through the back line, cut back onto his right foot and passed onto Callum Kelley who shot straight at the keeper.

The first goal of the game came half way through the first period of extra time when a free kick from Dyce player Connor Dalgleish arrived bouncing towards Sharp who skillfully volleyed it home.

Half time of extra time went by and the only highlight of the second half came when a long ball was flicked onto Cove’s Josh Robb who lifted it skillfully over the keeper to level the match and take it to penalties.

First up in the shoot out was Cove and their taker was Jamie Rennie who forced the Dyce keeper Munro to pull of an astounding save and create Dyce’s moment of the match.

The first taker for Dyce was Clark Sharp who slotted the penalty home into the bottom left corner.

Then up came Coves man of the match, Mark Scott to take his penalty and he struck it beautifully into the top right corner, near impossible for the keeper to save.

The second penalty for Dyce was taken by their man of the match, Nogosa Uwaiae who powered it into the right side netting to put them 2-1 up on penalties.

Coves Danny Robertson stepped up to take the third penalty and he placed his penalty into the bottom left corner to level the shootout.

Dyce’s third pen was taken by Callum Kelly who put it in the bottom right corner to keep the home side in front.

Cove’s fourth and final penalty was taken by Josh Robb who tried to put it in the bottom left but was saved remarkably by Munro to give a tremendous advantage to Dyce.

The final penalty of the game came to Max Cheung who put it into the right side netting to win the game for Dyce and send them to the final of the Winton trophy 4-2 on penalties.

Congratulations to Dyce who progress to the Final and well done to Cove who lost out but gave it their all, there is no harm losing a penalty shoot-out considering it's a lottery.
