YM forced to set­tle for point

East Kilbride News - - SPORTS -

East Kilbride YM re­main third in the Cale­do­nian League af­ter be­ing held by ri­vals Cam­bria last week.

The two pro­mo­tion hunt­ing sides served up a thrilling en­counter in mid­week with the end re­sult help­ing the other sides chal­leng­ing for the pro­mo­tion spots.

Mid­way through the half YM’s Cammy Mc­Cul­loch, re­turn­ing af­ter a short in­jury en­forced ab­sence, saw his shot re­bound off the Cam­bria up­right but un­for­tu­nately the ball eluded the in­rush­ing Ricky Orr and the chance was lost .

YM even­tu­ally took the lead from the penalty spot af­ter Orr had been im­peded and Mc­Cul­loch made his usual com­pe­tent job from the spot.

Cam­bria hit back but again YM de­fended well un­til late in the game when a Cam­bria throw in found Irvine run­ning in to the penalty area and his shot found the net to bring the sides level.

Both teams tried to find a win­ner but at the end of a very good match the teams had to set­tle for a point apiece.

Else­where, YM’s GGPL side, who have started well in their Spring Cup sec­tion, drew 1-1 with lo­cal ri­vals Dy­namo EK. Cammy Mc­Cul­loch scored in an­other run out for the club, but Dy­namo’s An­drew Ful­ton equalised just mo­ments later.
