Clark and Reilly into double figures
Queen of the South continued their rich run of form with a 2-0 cup success at Edinburgh City, thanks to goals from Nicholas Clark and Gavin Reilly.
The Doonhamers, who currently sit top of the Second Division, could have taken the lead early on when Reilly's right-footed shot was tipped around the post by Andrew Stobie.
Reilly continued to cause problems down the right flank but it was Clark who opened the scoring when he cut in from the left and brilliantly curled the ball inside the near post for his 10th goal of the campaign.
The home side pushed for the equaliser and went close when Ross Guthrie hit the post in the 59th minute.
Reilly then made them pay and joined Clark on 10 goals for the season, when he finished the game off with a cool finish in the 65th minute to round off a wonderful display.
