Dundela 2-1 Queens 22/08/17 Home Premier Intermediate League
Jordan Hughes opening the scoring from the penalty spot.
The Wilgar men grabbed a welcome first home win in this hard fought encounter with Queens.
Striker Jordan Hughes was the hero for The Duns with two goals,his first from a penalty followed by a blistering long range strike to seal the points.
The home side took to the field with several changes to the starting line up from the previous games, with Jay Magee, Adam Calvert and Curtis Black given first starts for the club and also Karl Devine being brought in to midfield.
As in their last two fixtures Dundela were quickly on the attack with Burns and McMaster posing threats down the wings. Black was also proving difficult to handle with his pace through the middle.
It was the lively Black who played a big part in the break through when he was put through by a pin point pass and rounded the keeper only to be brought down and a penalty was the result.
Jordan Hughes was the man given the job of taking the kick and he despatched it in style to put The Duns ahead.
The lead was not to last for long as a mix up in defence allowed Queens to get the leveller and for few minutes things were getting a little heated as some robust challenges were being made by both sides.
It was the home side who nudged ahead again on the stroke of half time when Hughes netted with a long range strike.
The second half was a somewhat bruising affair with both sides going at it but unable to create any clear cut chances with the game being punctuated by free kick after free kick.
As the half wore on the visitors seemed to be gaining the upper hand but Magee and captain on the night Morrison were superb in thwarting the high ball tactics being deployed.
Dundela still persisted with playing out from defence and were almost caught a couple of times on the compact Wilgar pitch.
With time running out the visitors were becoming more desperate to get level and only for last ditch tackles might well have got thorough but Dundela are made of stronger stuff these days and saw off any danger to secure the welcome victory.
