  • Report and photos


Goalkeeper Brian McGarrity scored a late winner against Lesmahagow after he launched the ball from his own box up the park intended for Chris Dallas to give chase, However the ball bounced beyond the reach of the striker and then over the head of Gow’s goalkeeper and into the net. The visitors made more than a game of it and indeed took the lead on 44 minutes after Paul Woodlock’s cross from close to the corner-kick was caught in the gusting wind and found it’s way into the Glens net. The home side drew level six minutes into the new half when the best move of the game ended with Mick McCann slotting the ball beyond the reach of advancing keeper Sandy Thomson.
