Ladies 2nd XI begin season with a comfortable win

Kelburne 2XI 5 - 1 Giffnock 2nd XI
Glasgow Green 7/8/13
(Rachael Ewing, Emma Ryan, Christine MacCrimmon, Fiona McGowan, Jennifer Morgan)

With Kelburne 2s getting their season started at their new home ground, Glasgow Green, everyone had high hopes for the game. 
Kelburne started well having majority of the possession and created a number of chances early on.  The first chance came when Kelburne won a short corner with Emma's shot being followed up by Rachael.  Kelburne won a penalty flick which Rachael calmly slotted away making the home side the deserved leaders. 
Shortly after, Kelburne were continuing with their high standard of hockey with some great performances from debutants Holly and Imogen (stars of the future!)  Another short corner was awarded and Emma slotted it away 3rd time lucky.  The next goal came from good build up play from Fiona, Jen M and Ellise to win another penalty corner and this time Christine put it in the goal. 
Half time and its 3-0 Kelburne. 
A great 1st half to the start of the season. 
As the second half started, Kelburne were still dominating.  Giffnock then started to pile on the pressure but the defence line up of Jen O, Briony and Taylor made sure no goals were conceded.  However, in a moment against the run of play Giffnock managed to score a consolation goal bringing it to 3-1.  After Kelburne received another short corner, Jen M managed to score past the keeper.  Kelburne had a win in their sights and Fiona made sure of victory scoring the 5th goal. 
Both goalkeepers Eilidh and Heather had an amazing game as well and managed to keep Kelburne in the game. 
All in all, a great 1st game and an amazing result for the 2nd XI,  hopefully many more of the same to come in the future!!!
