Pro-life Kelburne Ladies 3s 0-0 Score vs East Kilbride Ladies 2s - 28.1.17
On a cold and snowy January afternoon, Kelburne Ladies 3's travelled to Duncanrig school to face East Kilbride Ladies 2's, the team currently sitting top of the West District 2nd Division. The game started with Kelburne confidently holding their shape and denying East Kilbride time and space on the ball. In attack the young squad retained possession for long spells and were unlucky not to convert more chances. They did however create a series of short corner opportunities, which unfortunately went unconverted. After a promising 1st half the score was 0-0. The second half started much as the 1st half had finished, with Kelburne controlling play in attack and remaining composed in defence. Fantastic holding up play came from the young forward line and this created another 4 corner chances. Although these opportunities did not result in goals, notable was the effort and resilience demonstrated by the forward line to continually keep popping up in the right position. Easy Kilbride broke on a few occasions although solid defensive performances from Neave Halliday and Carol Feeney ensured that Abbie Houston saw the whole game out without having to touch the ball. Even when Lora Caven was harshly green carded on two separate occasions, the young team pulled together in defence to ensure EK found no way through their defence.
The game finished 0-0 and testament to Kelburne improvement, the Paisley side were disappointed not to claim all 3 points. Neave Halliday, for her third game in a row, deservedly claimed the Most Valuable Player Award.
The Ladies 3's return to league action tomorrow against Glasgow University at Glasgow Green, where they will be looking to continue this impressive display, as they look for goals to reward their perseverance.
Final Score 0-0
