In Colts' final pre-season match before the first league match next weekend Stranraer made the journey to Broadwood.
It was the home side who started the brightest keeping the ball well in the opposition half and were rewarded on the 15th minute as Craig Holmes was brought down in the box after a burst of pace fooled the defender who was committed to the tackle. Colts winger Stephen O'Neil took the penalty and put it away with ease. 1-0 Colts.
After the goal Stranraer began to have more possession but struggled to create many chances of their own. But their highlight of the half came as Andy Hunter played their centre forward on side who was brought down by keeper George as he advanced into the box, conceding a penalty, George however saved the spot kick low down to his right to protect the colts lead.
Stranraer kept the ball well to keep the pressure in Colts but only tested keeper George once in the remainder of the half from a free kick.
Half Time 1-0
The visitors aimed to keep up the pressure at the start of the second half but other that an off target free kick were unable to create a clear chance.
Colts had the first opportunity of the half as Piscassio broke from the back driving forward 50 yards from his defensive post only for Brown to miss at the end of the move where it looked asier to score.
This was quickly followed by an excellent double save from Sam George at the other end of pitch with the game becoming an end to end encounter.
Despite chances at either end the score remained the same as the game entered the closing stages until the 90th minute where a Stranraer corner gave the visitors the chance to equalise after Colts failed to clear the ball and Gerry Amoo found the top corner with the last kick of the game.
A really positive performance and result for the Colts despite the late equiliser against their SPFL Division 1 opponents.
Full Time 1-1
