Young Kelburne Ladies 3s Draw vs Garnock 0-0

Saturday 3.11.18 - On a very wet and windy day in Largs our young side dominated the game throughout. The ball rarely left our attacking half and was always quickly dealt with through quick interceptions in midfield and defence. Lindsay in goal had not one save to make as the ball was kept far from her goal-line. Lots of pressure from the first seconds of the game with great passing and control. Charley made a great interception as Garnock tried to break then went round 2 defenders before driving into the D to create the first of many chances. Constant pressure on their defence led to a short corner in 12 mins. The shot was well saved and resulted in a second short corner. The team worked hard by constantly challenging for the ball, with midfield and the forwards linking well to control the game. Charley again picked the ball up through an interception and desperate defending was needed from Garnock to clear the ball. Niamh had a great shot on goal which was bravely saved with a last second stop by the defence. Eve was a constant presence in midfield, winning the ball back as Garnock attempted to drive forward. Aly too was persistent in left midfield thwarting any breakaways. The last 2 mins of the first half finished as it had started with constant pressure on the Garnock defence. The 2nd half started confidently with a great shot from Abbie after linking up well with Freya breaking from defence. Lucy worked hard in the D and created an opportunity after being fouled on the edge of D. A Short corner followed and the outstanding Garnock GK saved her team yet again by clearing to the side line. Shot after shot resulted in more amazing saves from the GK. Their desperate defending led to one short corner after another and Morven and Elaine both had shots saved. After a break from Garnock, Carol and Laura quickly stopped their progress allowing Niamh to make a great run up the right wing. Yet another short corner resulted in Morven’s shot being saved on the line by the defender. Another 2 short corners were both saved by the GK. Abbie made a great break from the halfway line beating the chasing defenders before driving the ball in but yet again a goal eluded us despite great effort from Isla and Emma playing well up front and great effort from Alisa and Esme in midfield. The team completely dominated the game throughout and at the final whistle the game finished at 0-0 result. Well played ladies.
