CELTIC DOWN AGAIN.
Over 18,000 spectators saw Queen's Park get the better of Celtic by the odd goal in three at Hampden Park yesterday.
Though the contest was never fought out with the tenseness and vigour that have characterised many past engagements, it was, nevertheless, engrossing, and at times exhilarating, particularly after Celtic had equalised.
The amateurs were worthy their victory. They were keener, and stronger, and they worked better together. McAlpine was their strong man, and he was given splendid assistance by the men-in-the rear. The half-backs were powerful, and resourceful, especially Gillespie, whose intelligence and craft meant much, both to the forwards and his colleagues directly in the rear.
Peden also played his part, with refreshing freedom. His only mistake was when he dropped a ball from Kavanagh in the first half. Wiseman, however, came to his rescue.
Celtic's, forwards were clever enough individually, but they rarely revealed any idea of cohesion, and this naturally told against them. Not only that, but they also drove from impossible distances. It was evident they were feeling the effects of their strenuous clash with Rangers.
Their wing play was not in keeping with their usual standard. R. Thomson was badly missed, and Kavanagh and Scarff never blended. The half-backs did all they could to save the game, but their task was in vain, McCallum, until he was injured just before Queen's Park scored, and McGonagle were solid, and confident.
After McCallum's injury Celtic rearranged their side, the back going to the outside right wing forward position, Connolly taking up the inside, Thomson going to right-half, and Wilson back.
Just previous to this the amateurs scored through McAlpine—the third minute of the second half. McAlpine had another great effort, immediately afterwards, Thomson saving brilliantly.
Celtic's equalising goal was scored by Napier ten minutes later from a through pass from Thomson. It was a smartly taken goal. Twelve minutes before the finish McLelland scored the deciding goal for the amateurs, after McKenzie had initiated the movement.
