Ten minutes later and Queen's were two ahead. A floated corner by Martin Ure was headed beyond the stranded Gunngfeld keeper by skipper Richard Sinclair. The 2-0 half time score reflected the first period well and as the second half began so did the heavy rain which affected the playing surface in Queen's favour, and our slick passing began to pay dividends on the zippy pitch.
It was 3-0 Queen's on 50 minutes, the impressive Stuart McGrady turning home Shaun Molloy's low cross from six yards. Cairney made it four minutes later his solo run saw him break through three defenders before smashing the ball in at the keeper's near post. The impressive Ryan Holmes was then replaced by ex St Mirren kid David Murray, and the 19 year old made an impact scoring twice. The second a sublime chip over the keeper from twelve yards. Gunnigfeld managed to pull one back in the 88th minute but it didn't dampen the Queen's spirits, after a truly fantastic performance.
