Ladies Suffer Shock Defeat

Shock defeat for Kelburne Ladies

Kelburne ladies 1st XI entered into their first game of the season feeling confident and relaxed. Their aim was to dominate the game and not allow the newly promoted GHK side to enter into the match. The girls certainly achieved this by winning the first of many short corners within the first 7 mins, and barely allowed the home side to leave their own half. An opening goal however remained out of reach as many chances were squandered, much to the frustration of the visitors. The first half ended 0-0.

Some minor alterations were made for second half. As Kelburne were firmly in the driving seat, a more attacking formation was adopted to push for the 3 points. Even with the added fire power to the front line, the visitors could not find the back of net. A lack of organization and mounting frustration gave the home team the opportunity to break, and GHK took the lead against the run of play. Kelburne quickly responded and Kerri Nunnery managed to put the ball beyond the GHK keeper. It appeared that this was boost that Kelburne required and again they piled on the pressure , but in a similar fashion to the first goal, GHK were able to break again and nose in front. With time remaining on the clock Kelburne pushed for an equalizer, but to no avail. The game ended 2-1.

The ladies now have to prepare themselves for their next fixture, which will take place in Dundee next Saturday against Dundee Wanderers.
