Giffnock 1s: 1
The sun was shining and the Kelburne girls werefocussed on what they had to achieve. A strong start from the word go meant that Kelburne settled into the game well. The defence played with confidence as they moved the ball around the back. Unfortunately, after the strong start , 'Burne lost concentration and communication letting Giffnock put the ball in the back of the net. The Kelburne girls responded well. With great attacking play from Emma Barlow, Kerri Nunnery made a fantastic run to back post and deflected Emma's pass into the goal. Giffnocks heads went down.
The second half started well for Kelburne and their youngsters created some excellent opportunities up the right hand side. They were pushing forward with confidence and finally won a corner. A well-executed corner allowed Frankie McKeown (left) time at the top of the D to have a powerful strike towards goal. With a poor decision from the Giffnock defender, the ball took a lucky deflection into the goal. Throughout the rest of the half Kelburne made many chances but didn't capitalise.
The game ended 2-1 to Kelburne - President Cup Winners!
