Improvement In Fortune Continues As Dollybirds Hold League Leaders

Despite a sticky surface both teams served up a very exciting game of football that ebbed and flowed throughout resulting in a 3-3 draw.
Glen Hand set Richy Thompson through and he calmly rounded the keeper and scored from an acute angle on the quarter hour mark and indeed same player had another great chance few minutes later but failed to convert.In the opening minutes of the second half Andy McMath had a great one on one with the keeper who saved at the near post and then lost central defender Marc Davidson with an injury with Michael Denver replacing him.

Then on 50 minutes Queen’s equalised with a very fortunate goal that the linesman flagged for offside but the referee over ruled him and minutes later McMath had yet another wonderful chance after being played in by Thompson but his snap shot went the wrong side of the far post this time.

Queen’s then went in front for the first time in the match but not without some controversy again as the Queen’s central defender was lying on the ball in his own half of the pitch and as DFC waited on a free kick the referee waved play on and on the break they went in front.

However McMath finally equalised after great move down the left by Stephen Jones and Thompson and soon after this Davy Richmond and Ryan Gourley were replaced by Ryan Lawless and Davy Gray but Queen’s went in front once more after some hesitancy in the area with five minutes left in the game.

Denver then equalised in the final few minutes for Dollingstown again this with a degree of concern this time from the Queens bench.

Overall a very good but deserved point for the home team as they try very hard to move clear off the bottom of the table against the league leaders
