Match Report


Clydebank were left heartbroken after conceding two late goals to Dumbarton in a pulsating county derby on Saturday. The hero for the Sons was Hugh McMahon, whose clinical double in quick succession secured a dramatic 3-1 victory for the away side.

Both teams delivered a fast-paced, clean, and highly entertaining performance. While Clydebank might feel a touch unlucky to walk away empty-handed, Dumbarton's ruthless efficiency in the final ten minutes ultimately proved decisive.

The first half saw Clydebank threaten more dangerously than their opponents. However, a costly error by goalkeeper Ronnie Wilson in the 42nd minute gifted Dumbarton the lead. Inside right McGowan's seemingly harmless low shot was spilled by Wilson, allowing winger McDonald to slot the ball home with ease.

The second half began scrappily as both sides jostled for control. The deadlock was broken in the 59th minute by a moment of individual brilliance from Tommy McGhee. From distance on the left flank, he unleashed a powerful strike that rocketed into the top corner of the net, leaving Dumbarton goalkeeper Crawford helpless.

Clydebank pressed for a winner after restoring parity, but their hopes were dashed by McMahon's clinical finishing in the 77th and 78th minutes. He replicated the same move twice, deftly slipping the ball past the onrushing Wilson to secure a dramatic victory for Dumbarton.

The late goals completely deflated Clydebank, allowing the Sons to comfortably close out the match and claim all three points.
