Making his first appearance at welfare football level was Mike Mackay, as a substitute.<br /><br />Ross Club got off to the perfect start as Donald Stewart netted after only ten minutes, despite calls for offside. But their resolve could not prevent Thistle from equalizing as Liam Rostock scored his second of the season, netting in an open goal on the rebound from Andy Ripley's earlier shot.<br /><br />1-1 at half time, the Jags may have hoped to go on and take the lead, and looked like they may when Goller, having been tripped on the edge of the box, won a free kick. Daniel Christie however, could not convert the chance.<br /><br />Instead, the Dingwall men took the lead through Keagan Stewart, and the second half looked as though it may finish 2-1. However, substitute Mike Mackay with almost his first touch of the game, lashed a shot from outside in the box, deep into the net to make it 2-2 on 89 minutes.<br /><br />The game inevitably went to extra time, and again it was Ross Club who took the advantage, Aaron Simpson pouncing on a failed clearance to make it 3-2.
