Queens run of poor form continued on Sunday when they took on Forfar Farmington Ladies at NWCC in a SWFL League 1 match.
From the start, Forfar were well organised and passed the ball around well and took the lead after 10 minutes. Play was fairly even for the rest of the first half and Queens did manage to create chances, but Forfar’s defence mopped up everything thrown at them.
There was no further scoring in the first half, but Forfar stepped up a gear from the start of the second half, scoring in the 47th, 50th, 57th and 62nd minutes, with Queens normally solid defence and midfield failing to shut down the Forfar attackers.
Queens made changes in an attempt to bolster the attack and they pulled a goal back in the 67th minute with a superb strike into the right hand corner from Lois Geddes. Not long after the goal, Queens had a chance to reduce the leeway when they were awarded a penalty, but Lois Geddes’ powerful shot was well saved by the Forfar keeper.
As Queens pushed forward to try to make the scoreline more respectable, Forfar added a 6th and final goal in the 75th minutes to make the final score Queens 1 Forfar 6. With a trip to Dundee coming up this Sunday, Queens may make changes to the team to address areas of weakness in what is proving to be a much tougher league than last season
