Heriot Watt University 2
Kelburne Ladies 2's hosted Heriot Watt University at Glasgow Green on Saturday, in the Championship league.
The young squad maintained possession and controlled the game extremely well in the opening stages. The first goal coming early in the 5th minute when Ellise Berry remainder composed on front of goal and slipped the ball passed the Heriots keeper from a pass from Anna McIntosh. The visiting students were stung stung again 10 minutes later when Catherine McLaughlin found the bottom right corner with her corner strike.
Olivia Cain, and Marlieke Rademakers looked lively upfront and their perseverance paid off when as they claimed another corner in the 21st minute. Once again McLaughlin slotted this home taking the score to 3-0.
However the Heriot students replied very promptly claiming a field goal from a fast break within minutes. At half time Kelburne 2's led 3-1.
The second half begun as the 1st ended, with the Heriots team enthused by their late goal. The young Kelburne team seemed to lose a bit of urgency and for a long spell had to defend attack and corner after corner. The visitors capitalised on this spell and after 50 minutes had scored once again from open play to make it 3-2.
Kelburne failed to recompose themselves and the defence had to absorb a great deal of pressure before the final whistle blew. Nevertheless the young squad were delighted to make their first half performance count and to claim all three points.
