Pro-Life Kelburne Ladies 2s Lose Out to Stirling Wanderers

Pro-Life Kelburne Ladies 2's Lose to Stirling Wanderers 3-5 on 12.3.17

The game had a rocky start for Kelburne with Emma Ryan getting an ankle injury and having to go off within the first minute of the game. However they soon recovered and the first goal of the match was scored by Kelburne due to Lucy Bliss stealing the ball and running up the pitch where she crashed the ball in for Lucy Dunlop on post. The Stirling Wanderers came back fighting however despite their continous presence and attacking in Kelburnes D they scored only one goal before half time.

Within the first 5 minutes of the second half the Stirling Wanderers had won a short corner in which they scored on. However, Kelburne came back and a good pass up the right to Bethany Allan who crashed the ball into the D lead to Lucy Bliss scoring Kelburnes second goal. But despite the best efforts of Kelburne's defense, Stirling Wanderers scored 2 more goals (one from open play and the other from another short corner). Despite this Kelburne didn't give up and in the final 5 minutes Holly Pitts scored Kelburnes third goal from a rebound from the goalie. This put Kelburne back in the match and they came back stronger with Holly Hendry and Kathryn Meenan relentlessly annoying the goalie with shots however with 1 minute to goal a Stirling Wanderer defender managed to clear the ball to their high striker who managed to score the final goal of the match. Kelburne played exceedingly well despite the continous pressure the faced in their D. Lucy Bliss and Kathryn Meenan both took advantage of any breaks Kelburne got by running the ball up the pitch and taking shots at the goalie. Lucy Dunlop who normally plays for 3rds also did very well, scoring a goal for the 2nds. Kelburne Womens 2s hope to get their winning streak back next week against Ayr.
