Pro-Life Kelburne Ladies 3s Beat Clydesdale 5s - 18.3.17
ProLife Kelburne Ladies 3's hosted Clydesdale Ladies 5's on Saturday in the West district second division. Glasgow Green was the venue for this local derby with both squads fielding large youthful squads. Pro-Life Kelburne opened the scoring in the 15th minute when Ambar Hendry calmly slotted the ball past the Clydesdale keeper following a left sided attack. This goal was quickly followed by another after Neave Halliday stole into the circle from right back and screamed a deflected ball into the bottom left hand corner. Kelburne looked very comfortable at this point and just before half time they consolidated this lead further when Georgia Jennings jumped on a rebound off the keeper to ensure the ball hitcthed the back of the net. At half time the score was 3-0 to the home side.
The second half began as much as the first had finished, with Kelburne commanding possession of the ball and utilising the width down both flanks. Nevertheless although some great right side crosses came in from Halliday Kelburne failed to increase their lead. Much composure was required at the other end however as Clydesdale broke at speed on a number of occasions. Nevertheless although seven corners were conceded, the Kelburne defence stood strong and calmly dealt with each in turn. The game finished 3-0 to ProLife Kelburne 3's, who continue to climb beyond their mid table league position. They look forward to hosting Garnock HC next Saturday again at Glasgow Green. Most valuable player this week who was voted as captain Carol Feeney, whose goal line clearance earned her a split knuckle alongside this award.
