Scone made it four games in a row unbeaten tonight when they shared the points in their final match of season 2016/17 away to Dundee North End.
The hosts had taken the lead just before the break when Hunter scored from the spot but Scone hit back with a stunning double in two minutes with 17 minutes to go when first Martin Strachan broke through the home defence before making no mistake and then, after Scrimgeour had received his marching orders for The Dokens for a second caution, Whitworth stepped up to drill a free kick from outside the area under the wall and past home keeper Neal Ferrie.
It looked like the Jags might hold out for all three points and a win that would have guaranteed at least a top five finish, however with the game into injury time Smith headed home from a Stewart cross to ensure the match finished two each.
The Jags stay in fifth spot two points clear of North End and must now await the outcome in North End’s last two games, visits to title chasing Kirriemuir Thistle and third placed Kinnoull, to see if they will finish in fifth or sixth place. Either way, history is guaranteed as it’s the Jags highest ever finish in the North Division.
We’ll have a full match report and highlights tomorrow from tonight’s game.
