Newington dominated possession in the first half but went in at halftime losing 1-0 to an early penalty for Queen’s converted by Daniel Hanna.
The second half was only a few minutes old when Conal Burns brought Newington level with a free header from a good cross. Queen’s debutant Daire Rooney then restored Queen’s lead when his glancing header from Matt Hughes cross found the bottom corner. With ten minutes left, Queen’s were awarded an indirect free kick in the box and Noel Corrigan passed to Ciaran O’Hare who scored at the second attempt to secure the win.
