Ladies 2nd XI go down fighting

Kelburne Ladies 2s Vs MCCW 2s
Inverclyde 13:00 21/9/13

Full time score 0 - 3

Kelburne Ladies 2s travelled down to Inverclyde carrying a few injuries but enthusiastic about the upcoming game. With a few new faces in the team and coach Craig Morton on the side line to cheer them on all players were ready to take on the challenge of Western 2s.
 
The first half saw Kelburne?s defence of Cath MacLauchlan, Briony Coyle, Kirsty Hair and Claire F able to soaking up a lot of the pressure from an experienced Western side both from open play and from the short corners they managed to win. With a small drop in concentration Western managed to find a gap in the defence and put the ball past keeper Eilidh Fleming after numerous great saves. With the middle field Jen Morgan, Fiona McGowan, Molly Godfey and Susan Deanie running their socks of and distributing the ball high to the forwards it was against the run of play that Western managed to sneak another goal in past the young keeper.
 
With great relief from all, the half time whistle went.


Half time score 0 ? 2

After an inspirational team talk from coach Morton the Kelburne ladies took to the pitch once again ready to face Western. With a few changes in position due to injuries the team were looking solid and passing the ball well all over the pitch.
 
The young forward line up of Verity McDonald, Elise Berry, Katie Bogan and Taylor Bain were linking well with the mid field to create some great opportunities in front of goal but unfortunately all were denied by countless saves by the western keeper.
 
Western were now getting frustrated with the run of play but managed to win a short corner, only to be denied by a superb goal line save by Briony Coyle.
 
Again the whole team pulled together to keep the ball moving and travel up the pitch with a sly interception Western managed to break through into the ?D? and topping the ball it baubled all over the place before finding its way into the goal. As the final whistle went the Kelburne Ladies had a lot of positives to take forward onto their next game in 2 weeks time.
