Easter Cup Preston
Sunday 20th April 2014
Day 2 of the Preston Easter Cup and Dyce have one more league section match against Strathaven to ensure qualification to the semi final of the cup.
Dyce BC v Strathhaven
Dyce battled right from the start and had the bulk of the pressure but it took until the thirtieth minute before the breakthrough came when Rory Brown used some clever footwork to get into the box and the Strathhaven defender brought him down and the referee had no hesitation in pointing to the spot, Liam Strath stepped up and struck the ball into the net 1-0 Dyce.
This was no more than the Dyce pressure deserved.
