Lugar 1 Kilwinning 1

Thistle get off the ‘mark’


Lugar put the pain of last week’s defeat by Craigmark in the O.V.D.Cup behind them and earned their first league point thanks to a battling display against Kilwinning.

More bad news on the player front saw Jimsie forced into some changes in his line-up, but he was pleased to be able to re-introduce a fit again Lauchlan Millar into the team.


Kilwinning started strongly and pushed Lugar back for long periods, Lugar tried hard to break out of defence but failed to create any clear chances against a resolute Buffs rearguard.

An early attempt from Walker


Kilwinning took the lead midway through the first period from a corner kick. Lugar failed to pick up Fabianni running in from the left and he bulleted a header past Leavy to take a deserved lead.


Another Lugar attack


Punched clear by Dennison


With no recognised striker to assist Patrick Walker upfront, Lugar struggled to create many noticeable attempts on goal, but one chance saw Millar get on the end of a hopeful cross that deceived the Kilwinning defenders, his shot however was saved by the knee of Dennison, the Rangers goalie.


Half Time Score 0-1


The game was becoming more and more physical and Lugar were to suffer as the game wore on. The Boswell were playing better in this half and were pushing Kilwinning back as they searched for an equaliser. In one such attack on the visitors goal, Ricky Hanvey became the first casualty, thanks to a hefty challenge on the edge of the box, Hanvey had to be carried off and was replaced by Darren McMahon.

Lugar defend a Buffs corner


Pettigrew clears the danger.


Lugar kept pushing and their hard work eventually paid off when Craig Pettigrew turned neatly in the box and slammed the ball past Dennison to level the scoring with 20 minutes left to play. Both teams had chances for the winner but no-one could gain the upper hand. With about 5 minutes of time left Pettigrew was to be the next victim of a nasty challenge and he too had to be carried from the field of play. Short-handed Lugar had no more subs and they had to play on with 10 men.



Kilwinning pushed hard with their extra man advantage and it almost paid off in injury time but Stuart Leavy pulled off the save of the game to deny the Buffs full points.


Full Time Score 1-1
