Pro-Life Kelburne Ladies 2s Draw vs Dundee Uni 2s

On 19.2.17

A very changed 2s squad traveled to Dundee's Riverside pitch looking to gain a 2nd away win for the weekend. A special thanks to the players who stepped in at the last minute to help out on the day , Susan and Mhairi Gervis, Fiona MacDonald, Abbie Houston, Lynne Houston and Emma 'Houston' Ryan. Kelburne took time to settle in to the game after the long journey. With a few quick tweeks to the structure and formation of the team, Olivia Ritchie and Jen Morgan swapping positions, the team started to push forward though the middle. Although seldom troubled Kelburne fell behind to a quick break by Dundee down the left side and despite Pheobe Jones Williams best effort the ball squeezed in at the far post. Kelburne had a number of short corners in the first half but were unlucky not to convert any of them. Half Time Dundee Uni 1 - 0 Kelburne 2s Kelburne came out to dominate the second half pinning Dundee Uni in their own half for most of the time. Again short corners were won and a combination of good goal keeping and unlucky finishing kept Dundee ahead. Kelburne were pushing and pushing leaving them a little exposed to a break away but the back line again well marshaled by Cath Mclaughlin kept the ball outside the D with Ellie Houston, Rachel Bannatyne and Jen Morgan all making great tackles and clearing passes. Emma Ryan looked to be denied a clear goal scoring opportunity when rounding the Dundee Uni GK she was taken out by the keeper and lost control of the ball. Again Kelburne were awarded a number of short corners but continued to fail to put them in the back of the net. The midfield worked tirelessly to get the ball forward, Fiona MacDonald and Olivia Ritchie linking well with the forwards and super subs Abbie Houston (Ladies 3s GK) and Lynne Houston. With time running out quickly Kelburne again were rewarded with a short corner, although blocked initially the ball spun free and Captain Jen Morgan swept it in for the equaliser.
