What a win! The progress made by these girls since the start of the season has been phenomenal, and they truly deserved today’s victory. From the whistle, they showed grit and determination, they drove forwards in attack and defended beautifully. The first goal was quite rightly scored by us (Celia) as was the second (Zara) and we went in to half-time 2-0 up.  Fettes obviously had a good talking to during the break for they fought back, good and proper, for the first 8 minutes of the second half they looked like a different team and spent a great deal of time in our D, before scoring one of their own. It was now 2-1 with all to play for, the ball ricocheting up and down the pitch. A lovely solo run and strike, from Olivia, tipped the match back in our favour but it was not long before Fettes popped in another and the divide was again closing. With Fettes pressing ever higher, spectators, players and coach alike were relieved to hear the full-time whistle.

No game next week-time for a wee rest!
