Sons draw with Cowdenbeath
Sons started the first half with pace, attitude and aggression, but as the tempo slowed down Cowdenbeath gradually came back into the game.
Jordan Kirkpatrick saw an outstanding strike crash against the crossbar, and both Mark Gilhaney and Mitch Megginson came close for Dumbarton. By half-time the game was still goalless, despite chances at both ends.
The visitors were fast out of the starting block after the restart. Kane Hemmings struck the ball over the bar from a rebound off Jamie Ewings' near post.
The Sons 'keeper made a fine save from another break as the Blue Brazil piled on the pressure. At the other end, Megginson was also denied by the woodwork.
The Sonstrust Man of the Match was doughty midfielder Chris Turner. The draw means Dumbarton remain in seventh place in the SPFL Championship.
Cowdenbeath are back at the Rock next Saturday, 2nd November, for a third round William Hill Scottish Cup tie.
