EK stun Queens

East Kilbride News - - SPORTS -

East Kil­bride un­der-20s kept up their un­beaten away record in the SPFL West De­vel­op­ment League af­ter a stun­ning win over Queen of the South.

Early goals from Jay McI­nally and Blair Kidd put EK well in com­mand at Palmer­ston be­fore Cal­lum Wil­liams replied for the home side be­fore the break.

How­ever, Kilby struck back early in the sec­ond half through Conor Bell to claim another mem­o­rable three points at the ex­pense of their full-time op­po­nents.

The vis­i­tors took the lead af­ter nine min­utes when a pin­point long pass from Kidd found McI­nally and the striker took great de­light in out­muscling his for­mer club’s de­fence be­fore slam­ming home a fine left foot drive to open the scor­ing.

With the home side sec­ond best all over the field, Kilby dou­bled the lead on 20 min­utes. Conor Scul­lion de­liv­ered a per­fect cross and Kidd bul­let­ted a header low into the net.

But the Dum­fries side re­fused to go qui­etly and hit back six min­utes later when a cor­ner from the right was headed high into the net by Wil­liams.

Any hope of a come­back was quashed in the 49th minute when Bell capped a fine per­sonal dis­play, climb­ing high­est to power home a back-post header af­ter an ex­cel­lent Liam Craig cor­ner.
