Ross Cannon’s injury time strike salvaged a point from Blairgowrie as they fought back to draw with Dundee United SC.
Kyle McMulkin looked to have done enough to seal the points for DUSC with his hattrick completing strike 13 minutes from time, only for Cannon to strike at the death to earn a point for Blairgowrie.
Both sides came into the match unbeaten in the Café Royale League knowing that a win would help both in their push for the title.
It was Blairgowrie that started on the front foot with their leading marksman Robbie Watson driving from the halfway line before seeing his strike tipped round the post by Stuart Woods.
Harry Watson tested Woods with an effort from distance before Kaisey Brown swept a shot over from the edge of the box after meeting a low cross from Ross Cannon.
DUSC had offered little in an attacking sense in the opening stages, but a series of long-range efforts from Kyle McMulkin showed the threat the hosts possessed in the final third. The forward brought a fine diving save out of Stewart Page with a fierce strike from the edge of the box.
McMulkin had made his intentions clear to Blairgowrie, so there was little surprise when he curled in the opener from 25 yards 18 minutes into the first half.
Things got better for DUSC as McMulkin produced another moment of magic seven minutes later to double their lead. Once again, he curled a strike out of the reach of Page from 20 yards into the net.
After a bright start Blairgowrie found themselves behind but pulled a goal back on the half hour mark through Reece Forrest, who managed to turn the ball in at the near post from a corner.
DUSC went straight on the offensive as Lee Lorimer weaved his way down the left wing before cutting the ball back for Charlie Loftus. It looked certain DUSC were about to re-establish their two-goal lead as Loftus sent the ball towards goal from six yards only for Page to keep the ball out at point-blank range.
The Blairgowrie stopper was rewarded for his efforts as his side equalised with the last meaningful touch of the first half.
Harry Watson released brother Robbie, whose shot was kept out by Woods, who then managed to keep out Archie Browning’s follow up. Robbie Watson was then denied by a recovering defender before Harry Watson clipped the ball into the net to draw Blairgowrie level.
