Home at GNHC, PB 1.30pm

During a Sunny January afternoon the Kelburne ladies 3's faced Loch Lomond in the West district second Division. Fielding a young talented squad, with a full bench Kelburne we're looking to improve on there mid table position against the team sitting top. Nevertheless Loch Lomond came out fighting and the first 15 minutes saw Kelburne camped out in their own half soaking up lots of pressure. Against the run of play experienced player/coach Rachael Ewing-Day carried the ball over the 23 yard line, into the Circle and buried a reverse stick shot pass the Loch Lomond keeper. Then with the nerves settled Kelburne began to create more chances with some lovely possession play in and around the circle. Three corners were claimed within this period which unfortunately were not converted. Then just before half time Loch Lomond broke and found there way past Abbie Houston the Kelburne keeper. Making the score at half time 1-1. The second half begun a lot more calmly from the Kelburne side, who seemed happy to zone defend and counter attack when they could. Then at the 50th minute defender Emma Ryan put the Kelburne ladies ahead again, after a great piece of individual skill. Retaining possession whilst skipping past a sea of Lomond defenders Ryan found the bottom right corner to make the score 2-1. Unfortunately the Paisley side failed to claim all three points after an error in defence left the keeper isolated and with little they could do against a clinical Lomond finish. Kelburne countered in numbers to try and fine me the winner, however another 2 corners went unconverted and the active Lomond keeper proved equal to all there attempts. The game finished 2-2, and Kelburne continue to climb the league with 1 further point. Notably three U-14 players made there competitive senior ladies debuts, demonstrating that the youth production line remains strong. While defender Neave Halliday another U-14 prodigy claimed her 3rd Most Valuable Player award of the season.

Final Score 2-2
