One change for this game saw Ryan McCready start up front at the expense of Connor Mulholland.
The home side had the better of the early exchanges and took the lead after 23 minutes. Queen’s
were having difficulty coping with the pace of Dundela’s Curtis Black and it was he who ran on to a
neat through pass. He tried to take the ball round keeper Declan Brown who brought him down.
Penalty to Dundela and a yellow card for Brown as Jordan Hughes thumped the spot kick down the
middle. Five minutes later it was one all. Confusion at the heart of the home defence resulted in
Eamon Fyfe picking up the loose ball and he skipped past a couple of defenders and scored from the
edge of the box. On 42 minutes Dundela were ahead again. This time Hughes let fly from 30 yards
and the flew into Brown’s goal.
The second period was played at a frantic pace but with fewer chances created and Dundela ran out
worthy winners as the game finished in darkness.
No complaints, Dundela were the better team and fully deserved their victory
