Deevale derail Stoney Ladies

Stonehaven started the game well and took the lead through Stout. A brilliant through ball from Gauld in the middle found her on the left wing and she curled it into the top right hand corner.

This spurred Deevale into action and they soon got their equalizer. Good skill on the right wing allowed the Deevale player to get passed Townsend, she crossed low into the box and the Deevale attacker finished from close range. Deevale then took the lead.

The Deevale attacker managed to get passed Urquhart in the Stonehaven defence, Paterson in goal rushed out but was unable to get the ball and the ball was bundled over the line.

Stonehaven were still creating chances but couldn’t find the killer finish to find the back of the net.

Deevale got their third goal of the game when a cross in from the wing wasn’t cleared and the attacker finished from close range.

Deevale then got a penalty. Paterson managed to guess where the ball was going 
but it was too powerful for her to keep it out.

The second half was a much tighter contest with Stonehaven enjoying lots of possession but not having much joy in front of goal.

Deevale got another goal, good skill on the edge of the box allowed the Deevale striker to get enough space to place the ball over Paterson in goal.

Deevale were then awarded another penalty, but this time they rattled the crossbar and the rebound was put over the top.

Stonehaven got a second goal after good wing play on the right from Stout who crossed in, the Deevale keeper was unable to catch the ball and it went into the net.

It was a very disappointing afternoon for everyone associated with Stonehaven Ladies FC.

Next game is the third round of the league cup on April 13, away to Dunfermline Athletic.
