Queens Ladies made it through to the next round of the Scottish Cup on Sunday with a fine away win over Forfar Farmington Ladies.
Queens ace striker Georgia Wilson opened the scoring in the 15th minute after a corner caused havoc in the Forfar penalty area with three Queens players having shots blocked before Georgia hammered home a rebound. Georgia doubled Queens’ lead in the 25th minute, breaking down the left channel and curling a shot past the Forfar keeper. Forfar reduced the leeway after 28 minutes but shortly after half time Queens’ two goal advantage was restored when a Forfar defender deflected a cross into her own goal.
Queens saw the game out with no further scoring, with the well organised & solid Queens defence dealing with everything Forfar could muster. Final score Forfar 1 Queens 3 and another cup tie to look forward to for Queens.
On Monday evening Queens Ladies were handed a second round Scottish Cup tie against Airdrie Ladies in the Scottish Cup draw. The tie will be played at Airdrie’s ground on 5th November and Queens will travel with confidence having beaten Airdrie 4-0 in a league game just a few weeks ago. Should Queens see off the Diamonds, they will progress to the next round where the teams from the top two tiers of Scottish Women’s football will enter the draw.
