Queen's Park 2 Montrose 0

The ticker-tape and celebrations had only finished from Sunday’s BetFred Cup Final, indeed there were still a few red and white scarves lying around the stadium after the Dons loss to Celtic but Hampden was ready for a William Hill Scottish Cup tie this time and for Queen’s Park or Montrose, this is where the dream would either end or fade away.

Before the match, the fans and both clubs paid tribute to the players and staff of Brazilian club Chapecoense and the journalists who lost their lives in the tragic plane crash.

Montrose went into the game after drawing their last game 1-1 against Forfar and Queen’s had come into this game on the back of an unbeaten run of three games.

Montrose won the first foul of the night after five minutes, just outside the corner of the Queen’s box but Graham Webster’s curling effort went into the side netting.

The home side could not get going and Montrose looked to be on top in the early stages without really threatening the Queen’s goal.

David Galt showed nice skills on 12 minutes as the Spiders won their first corner of the night but the corner came to nothing.

The home side were now starting press forward and when Ryan McGeever went on a run before slipping the ball to Sean Burns on the left but his cross was blocked for a corner.

The cross was blocked for another corner, and from the corner, McGeever’s header was kept in by Paul Woods and he teed up David Galt., who blasted the ball past Alan Fleming to give the home side the lead on 15 minutes.

The goal seemed to settle the home side and they enjoyed a spell of possession but even though they had more of the ball, they never really threatened the Montrose goal again until the 25th minute when McKernon whipped in a free-kick that was only inches away from any number of blue shirts., instead  it went through to keeper Fleming.

McKernon worked Fleming after 30 minutes when he carved out a nice opening for himself. The midfielder couldn’t get a clean connection on the shot but Fleming scrambled to the far post to make sure.

It was all Queens now and Carter and Woods carved out a chance but the impressive Woods hit a shot that Fleming parried away to safety but not for long, from the resulting corner the Montrose defence thought they had cleared their lines but Anton Brady struck a volley which Fleming held well.

Montrose did have a half chance before the break, on 39 minutes when Court got to a cross just in front of Muir but his header looped over the bar and the chance had gone.

Before the half-time interval, Queen’s did have a couple of chances to add to the score when Galt tried a curler from distance, which went over the bar and then Brady tried his luck from distance, but his effort was high and wide.

Neither side made any changes at the break, and the half opened much the same as the first period, with Montrose looking the livelier.

Webster had a decent chance after 48 minutes, but somehow he could only scoop the ball up and away from the goal, when an equaliser looked the only option.

After 50 minutes,  Chris Templeman replaced Jonny Court and the fans who had travelled down to Glasgow, hoped that the big man could work some magic.

On 54 minutes, came the moment that lit up this cup tie.

Paul Woods picked the ball up at the halfway line, turned and ran at the Montrose defence and kept running as players gave him options either side but his only thought was to keep on running until he saw a sight of goal and although Fleming got his hands to it, he couldn’t stop it, what a way to score your first goal of the season.

It was a carbon copy of the James Forrest goal in the BetFred final as the Red shirts parted in front of the on rushing attacker, to their cost!

Both sides made a change after 68 minutes; Montrose replacing Anderson with Watson, while Aiden Malone came on in place Carter

Malone brought out a fine save from Fleming with 11 minutes left as he unleashed a powerful shot following a good McKernon break.

Montrose almost got back in the game from a corner after 81 minutes. Webster got a header on target, but Millen stopped it on the line and McGeever completed the clearance.

Brady and Galt made way for Liam Brown and Fotheringham with six minutes left.

Woods did well to get back and poke the ball behind for a corner as Fraser threatened.

A couple of bone shaking tackles went in to make the last minute a bit lively with Gibson to at the heart of them and Webster was forced to limp off and Montrose night of misery was complete.
