Cowdenbeath 2 Morton 2

PostedOctober 23, 2010

Ten man Cowden earned a well deserved draw against Greenock Morton in a dramatic game at Central Park which included four goals, a red card and two missed penalties.

The home side played 83 minutes of the game with ten men after a red card for David Hay which, with 2nd choice Ludo Roy injured, saw an impressive debut for 17-year old keeper Lee Wilson (pictured).

Brian Graham opened the scoring after 10 minutes, shortly after the first penalty miss, but Marc McKenzie restored parity 6 minutes later when he converted from close range.

The Blue Brazil took the lead on 24 minutes when Colin Cameron, on his 38th birthday, finished off a fine move in style by curling the ball into the top corner from 18 yards.

Allan Jenkins saw his penalty savid by debutant Lee Wilson - the youngster also saved a spot kick for the under 19s last weekend - before Jenkins levelled the scores with the last kick of the ball in the 1st half.

Morton pressed for the winner in the second half but resolute defending kept the attempts on goal to a minimum and Greg Stewart almost won it for the heroic 10 men late on.

Debutant Stevie Old, central defender on loan from Kilmarnock, had to be replaced by Richard Vauls (who was also making his debut) after suffering a head knock with 15 minutes remaining. By the end of the game, a remarkable nine first team players were in the stand due to injury or suspension.
