Whitehill Welfare pegged back by BSC

Have your say

Whitehill Welfare were made to settle for a point away to BSC Glasgow last night in their third Lowland League away game in seven days, drawing 1-1 with Iain King’s men.

It looked like it would be six points from nine when Welfare opened the scoring after quarter of an hour.

The hosts failed to properly clear a corner and Darren McGlashan had the time and space to volley into the top corner from just inside the area.

BSC responded by putting Mickey Lawson’s team under real pressure, and were rewarded just after half-time, although there was an element of fortune about the leveller.

Gary Graham found space out wide and his cross-cum-shot evaded Bryan Young in the Whitehill goal and found its way in.

Graham almost won it from another bizarre opportunity, reaching the ball first after some miscommunication between Young and his defence, only to see his shot come back off the post.

That makes it a win, a defeat and a draw following last week’s 4-0 rout away to Gretna and Friday’s narrow loss at East Kilbride, leaving the Rosewell club sixth in the Lowland League table, albeit with games in hand on those above.
