Luke Owens’ own goal dented Dryburgh CC’s title hopes as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Dundee Thistle. Owens had given Dryburgh a first half lead but diverted Keiton Strachan’s free kick past Cammy Grant in the second half.
The visitor’s started brightly, with Kal Duncan forcing Thomas Egan into an early save with an effort from the edge of the box.
Both sides were battling in the midfield, which meant goal scoring chances were at a premium. Egan gathered Stuart Hoggan’s free kick at the second attempt before denying Paul Hutton.
Dryburgh opened the scoring six minutes before the interval through Luke Owens. Thistle failed to deal with Hoggan’s free kick from the left, and the ball broke to Owens, who drilled a low shot past Egan.
