Stonehaven ladies made the journey down south to face Dunfermline ladies in the league cup, winners would progress to the quarter finals.
It was clear from the outset that the weather conditions of strong winds and rain were going to make it a tough match for both teams. This made for a scrappy game but Stonehaven had the majority of the possession. Stonehaven’s first goal came from Gordon who found herself with the ball on the left wing and curled the ball into the top right hand corner. Stonehaven got their second through Penny who slotted home from close range after a corner was swung in from the left.
Half time Dunfermline Athletic Ladies FC 0 - 2 Stonehaven Ladies FC
Stonehaven had the wind against them in the second half but still managed to create chances without managing to increase their lead. Dunfermline were trying to get a goal back but couldn’t break the Stonehaven defence down. Stonehaven then got their third goal, Taylor turned brilliantly in the box and laid the ball back to Penny who finished for her second of the game.
Stonehaven ladies wait to hear who they will face in the quarter finals on May 4. Next game is a league fixture against Forfar on the April 20.
