2nd XI Girls win against the odds!

Saturday 2nd October
Kelburne - 3  (Emma Ryan - 3)
Grange - 0

With only 10 players, Kelburne had a tough fight on there hands but being a home game with the home supporters Kelburne were ready for the challenge.  The strong defence line-up of Jenny Hutchison, Lynsey Paxton-Steele, Cath Anderson and Steph Kirkland with the return of Cookie in goals, helped Kelburne to keep out the few chances that Grange made for themselves.  However Kelburne kept strong and after a couple of chances missed from short corners, Emma Ryan dribbled past the Grange defence to slot the ball in the goal.  Kelburne took a 1-0 lead into the second half.  Full of confidence, the home side started strongly and with Lyndsay Allan, Jen Morgan, Kirsty Rarity (new Kelburne addition) and Emma Ryan in midfield, Grange were struggling.  Great teamwork from Jen Morgan and Kirsty Rarity kept Kelburne in the game, then the home sidewon a short corner.  Emma Ryan hit the ball which deflected off the defenders stick high into the goal making it 2-0.  With super runs and hard work from Molly Godfrey in the forward line herself, Kelburne kept up the pressure.  Kelburne won a free hit just outside the D, with Jen Morgan passing to Emma Ryan who shot it top corner, making it a hattrick to the captain and leaving Grange dead and buried.  An excellent team performance by all and bring on the next game!
