In what’s been a really stop start season so far for the Under 13s, the Girls played Hearts Whites in the last 16 of the League Cup on Sunday and ran out 7-4 winners.
Coach Alan Woodrow writes,
“We started slowly but once we settled we got a 2-0 lead. Hearts hit back with a really good goal but the last 15 minutes on the half seen us score three without loss to extend our lead to 5-1.
Hearts gave themselves a welcome boost by reducing the score to 5-2 just before the break.
The second half saw Hearts edge back into it and at 6-4 the game was firmly in the balance. A goal with five minutes to go sealed a 7-4 win that sees us reach the Quarter Finals. Well done to both sets of players for putting on a great game full of goals!”
