East Kilbride News - - SPORT -

East Kil­bride FC’s un­der-20s suf­fered a nar­row 2-1 loss to cur­rent SPFL West De­vel­op­ment League champions Queen of the South at K-Park lastTues­day.

A de­fen­sive lapse saw the full-time Doon­hamers take the lead through John Wight on 36 min­utes to make it 1-0 at half-time.

The vis­i­tors in­creased their lead in the 57th minute when Joe Usher fired home af­ter an­other EK lapse in con­cen­tra­tion.

Un­de­terred, the K-Park young guns hit back in the 70th minute when cap­tain Liam Craig curled an un­stop­pable free-kick into the top cor­ner to make it a grand­stand last quar­ter of the game.

How­ever, the vis­i­tors held on to grab all three points.
