Stoney ladies hit Kemnay for ten in league opener

Stonehaven Ladies kicked off their 2015 league campaign at home against Kemnay.

It only took four minutes for Stoney to take the lead, Bradley smashing the ball into the net from just outside the box. It was Kennedy who got the second, racing onto a through ball from the midfield to slot home.

It was three nil on 33 minutes, a corner swung in by Gordon on the left was finished by C.Bowie from close range.

The opening 10 minutes of the second half were scrappy, with Stoney struggling to get back into their goal scoring rhythm. However on 58 minutes, Penny got Stoney back on track with two goals in two minutes.

It was then Masson’s turn to get on the score sheet, a great run on the right finished off with a low shot passed the Kemnay keeper. Bradley then got her second of the match, another well-struck shot from outside the box. Kennedy then got her second of the match to make it 8-0.

E.Bowie came on and finished off the scoring with two goals in two minutes.

Next game is a league fixture, on March 15, away to Aberdeen Reserves.

Team lineup: Paterson, C.Bowie, Townsend, Campbell, McMahon, Gordon, Bradley, McBay, Masson, Penny, Kennedy. Subs - Ferries, Gibson, E.Bowie, Dick, Jamieson.
