Pro Life Kelburne Ladies 3's play well but lose to East Kilbride

Pro Life Kelburne Ladies 3's v East Kilbride

Saturday 19th March

Kelburne Ladies 3's hosted East Kilbride Ladies at Linwood on Saturday in the West League 2nd division. In the second last game of the season the Paisley team were looking to continue their strong performances of late

Kelburne dominated play in the opening 15 minutes as East Kilbride only camped out in their own half. Nevertheless Kelburne failed to capitalise on this possession and failed to get any shots on target.

The young keeper Abbie Houston had not been tested by the time the half time whistle blew to signal 0-0 at half time.

The second half begun soaking up some pressure from the East Kilbride visitors. With some excellent passing play the Kelburne Ladies transitioned the ball around the back and consequently created some space and time up the opposite flank. Lucy Bliss was denied by the post during this spell, after a fierce undercut shot rebounded off the woodwork.

It was however East Kilbride that opened the scoring after a dubiously awarded penalty corner was driven past Houston in goals. Unfortunately this lead was increased less than 5 minutes later when East Kilbride broke past the high Kelburne defence and again found a way into Houston's goal to make it 2-0 to the visitors.

With five minutes remaining Kelburne added another when Holly Hendry, picked the ball up in midfield and carried it past the Ferguslie defence.

The score finished 2-0 with Kelburne still sitting comfortably in the middle of the table. Most valuable player was Lucy Bliss. The season will finish for Kelburne next week when Kelburne Ladies 3's host Broomhill in a rearranged game.
