The Men's Scottish Schools FA U18 were held to a 2-2 draw on Wednesday against an Australian Schools FA team at Ochilview.
The match was due to be played at Renfrew, but heavy snow forced the match to be moved to the 3G turf at Ochilview.
The U18s were looking to continue their fine form, having confidently dispatched of Stirling Albion and Partick Thistle in their last two matches by seven-goal deficits. Australia were out to give Scotland a run for their money.
Things couldn't hove gotten off to a better start for the men in blue, as they opened the scoring within two minutes through Tiwi Daramola.
The Socceroos weren't disheartened by their slow start and found an equaliser on the 27th minute courtesy of Harry McCarthy.
The Scots started the second half as quickly as they started the first and retook the lead when Owen Andrew managed to control a fast ball to his feet, before turning and firing into the roof of the net.
Less than ten minutes later however, Australia were level thanks to Jake Hollman.
It was a match that Scotland will have definitely felt they should have won, but will look on the positives as they prepare for two more friendlies against Greenock Morton and Stirling University, before their Centenary Shield campaign gets underway.

The Scottish National CP Football team is looking for sponsorship to help them compete once again on the international stage.
The team achieved the highest ever ranking for a Scottish national side, reaching sixth in the world in 2007 and are looking for the support of businesses and organisations across Scotland to help them rise up the ranks again.
Funds raised will be used to book pitches and facilities for training sessions, kit the team out with strips and training clothing, travel and accommodation when competing at international competitions as well as transport for national competitions.
The team will be playing against one of the top CP sides from England, CP United, on Sunday 9th September at Ochilview Stadium in Stenhousemuir and have welcomed the public to view the match.
Entry into the stadium will be free of charge, with donations welcome at the gate.
The Scottish National CP Football Team is Scotland's National Football Team for athletes with cerebral palsy, stroke and acquired or traumatic brain injury. The squad currently consists of 18 players, which includes numerous Paralympians, and is open to any Scottish footballer who has cerebral palsy, stroke and acquired or traumatic brain injury.
Driven by a team manager, and supported by three professional coaches and a physiotherapist, the staff ensure the team is held together by organising regular training sessions and arranging matches against local teams to keep the players ready for competition.
Giving up their time on a completely voluntary basis, the staff are motivated by the positive impact which this team has on the young men who attend.
"Having been involved with the team for thirteen years, I have witnessed lads grow into positive role models for young people with cerebral palsy" commented Greig Taylor, Manager of the Scottish National CP Football Team.
"The confidence which the boys gain when representing their country gets carried over into their personal lives, whether that be at school or in the workplace, therefore the team plays a vital role in their development" continued Taylor.

An agonising 2-2 draw in Slovenia last October meant Scottish brave hearts were once again left broken as the Tartan army fell short in their quest to qualify for the 2018 World Cup. Two decades have now elapsed since Scotland took centre-stage at a major tournament as all of their attention now turns to qualification for the European Championships in 2020.
It seems a far cry from their consecutive British Home Championship successes in the 1960s which culminated in their famous win over England in 1967, followed seven years later by their impressive showing at the 1974 World Cup piloted by the imperious Billy Bremner.
Gordon Strachan’s resignation has paved the way for Alex McLeish to have another stab at leading his country to a major competition - the former Aston Villa and Rangers manager narrowly missed out on guiding the nation to Euro 2008 qualification, although impressive wins against the likes of France and Ukraine should not be forgotten.
Many of the squad’s elder statesmen such as Darren Fletcher and Craig Gordon are reaching the twilight of their international careers and there is a new generation of exciting youngsters waiting to reverse the nation’s luck in landing a major tournament berth. Here are three of those talented prospects that we expect to inspire Scottish football in the coming seasons.
Harry Cochrane (Hearts)
The Glaswegian shot into the limelight last December by netting the opener in Hearts shock 4-0 victory over Celtic, thus ending the Hoops 69-game unbeaten run. Despite only turning 17 in April, the babyfaced Cochrane belies his lightweight frame with his robust challenges and plays with great maturity in the centre of the park. Has already made 22 appearances in Scotland’s top division and recently signed a new contract with Craig Levein’s side, which is due to run until 2021.
Lewis Morgan (Celtic)
A barnstorming start to the season saw the St Mirren winger notch 13 goals in 26 games across all competitions and this form secured him a move to the Scottish champions in the January transfer window. Morgan was loaned back out to the Buddies for the remainder of the campaign and Brendan Rodgers will be hopeful the skilful 21-year-old can hit the ground running when he eventually dons the famous green and white hoops. Made his full international debut in last month’s 2-0 defeat to Peru.
Ross McCrorie (Rangers)
When former Rangers manager Pedro Caixinha handed McCrorie his debut last September, he proclaimed that the then 19-year-old was going to be “one of the best centre halves in history, not just for this club but for this country.” Extremely versatile and athletic, McCrorie’s loan spells in the lower leagues with Ayr and Dumbarton have prepared him for the physical demands of Scotland’s top-flight. Has been touted as a future Rangers Captain.
Aside from this trio, there is a wealth of youngsters knocking on the door of their respective clubs as they dream of making their mark on Scottish football. Scotland’s future is in safe hands and now is the time to deliver success to this passionate footballing nation which is once again on the rise. The wait will soon be over.
