Ca­ley keeper de­nies Queens

The Galloway News - - MOTORS -

yards was just wide of the up­right; and he dragged a shot wide after Andy Stir­ling had played the ball over the top for him to run on to.

Mid­way through the sec­ond half, Fon Wil­liams was called upon again. John Rankin had played the ball over the de­fend­ers into the path of Cal­lum Tap­ping but the mid­fielder’s shot was well blocked by the keeper.

In the fi­nal 15 min­utes, Queens had a sec­ond penalty claim turned down. From a cor­ner, Cal­lum Fordyce headed the ball back into the box for Rooney who was at the back post.

His header was cleared off the line with the Queens play­ers sur­round­ing the ref­eree claim­ing it had come off the hand of a home de­fender.

Queens con­tin­ued to push for­ward and right at the end David Raven cleared Derek Lyle’s header to en­sure a share of the points. It was a point that moves Queens up a place to fifth in the ta­ble.
