colony park 2
Stonehaven Youth Girls under-13s made an excellent start to the season with an emphatic 9-2 win away to Colony Park at a rain sodden pitch in Inverurie.
There was a few early exchanges with Holley saving well at the feet of the Colony Park strikers. Stonehaven pushed on and forced an early chance for Farquhar which was well saved by the Colony keeper.
Stonehaven opened the scoring when a lay off from Spence found Caie who burst through from the right before lifting the ball over the advancing keeper and into the net.
Stonehaven pushed on and added a second scored by Farquhar. She picked up a Robertson clearance and raced beyond the defence and fired the ball low past the keeper.
Colony forced a corner and forced the ball in from close range to make the score 2-1.
Stonehaven pushed on again and Farquhar added her second and Stonehaven’s third again bursting through from the left and scoring low past the keepers right.
McVey came on and soon added a fourth bursting through beyond the defence and slotting the ball home.
Half time 4-1
Stonehaven made a good start to the second half and Robertson burst clear and the keeper did well to save from her feet. The keeper’s clearance broke to Farquhar 20 Yards out who lashed then ball high into the net for the goal of the game to complete her hat-trick. Robertson then added a well deserved goal to make the score 6-1. She outpaced the defence from a Porter through ball and scored past the advancing keeper.
Farquhar then scored a seventh Stonehaven goal firing home from the edge of the box from a Johnston pass.
Colony got a goal back forcing the ball home after a well delivered through ball from midfield making the score 7-2.
Stonehaven pushed on again and Caie hit the post and McVey, Fotheringham and Johnston all coming close with shots.
Spence scored her first ever goal breaking through from midfield and slotting home from the edge of the box.
Farquhar added her fifth and the teams ninth and final goal scoring from close range.
Final score 9-2
The team played excellent throughout the game with Holley showing a safe pair of gloves in the goal and the defence of Beedie, Robertson, Porter and Evans looking solid.
The midfield of Farquhar, Johnston, Caie, Fotheringham and Spence were constantly driving the team forward and supporting the strikers Doyle and McVey.
Some of the inter-play in the build-up to the goals was excellent and it was a well-deserved win. The girls worked hard over the winter and their hard work has paid off.
Team - Catriona Holley, Erin Beedie, Katherine Robertson, Laura Porter, Sophie Evans, Brooke Farquhar, Kirsten Johnston, Samantha Caie, Lori Fotheringham, Libby Spence, Aisling Doyle and Lucy McVey.
