Match ends, Queen of the South 3, Inverness CT 3.
Defiant Inverness fought back from three goals down away to Queen of the South to keep their unbeaten record intact.
Queens Lyndon Dykes opened the scoring with a scrambled effort, before Stephen Dobbie and Josh Todd looked to have made the points safe.
Jamie McCart started the comeback with a header, before Nathan Austin got a toe onto Tom Walsh's drilled shot.
And Sean Welsh won and scored a penalty for Inverness to make it three apiece.
Inverness' undefeated record in the championship continues as they remain fourth in the table, and Queen of the South remain sixth.
Queen of the South manager Gary Naysmith: "I'm disappointed because at 3-0 up we should have won the game. We were comfortable, we could have been more than 3-0 up.
"We gave away a needless free-kick that allowed them back into the game".
"They got the second goal quickly, then once they got the second goal it was wave after wave of attack."
Inverness CT manager John Robertson: "For 70 minutes Queen of the South should have been six or seven nothing up.
"They were the best team, they outfought us, they outplayed us, they outrun us, they bullied us, they played some magnificent football.
"We got a goal out of nothing, and then we get another quick goal and you think we might have a wee chance here, and then we get a penalty."
