Fjordhus females find winning ways

ESM1

Fjordhus Reivers2

COMMITMENT, dedication and focus resulted in a well-earned victory for the Fjordhus Ladies 1st XI against ESM.

ESM scored first however when a hard driven ball into the circle took a deflection and flew past the stranded goalkeepers head.

Continued pressure from the Reivers midfield kept the hosts on the back foot and this resulted in a penalty corner being awarded. Emily Newlands fired one home to make the score 1-1 at the break.

A half-time reshuffle paid off and a turnover deep in the Fjordhus half saw Leia McKinnon use her pace before passing to Laura McLean to fire the ball into the goal.

Solid defending and positive decision making in goal by Stacey Tennant thwarted any ESM attacks in the final 15 minutes to see the Reivers pick up a well-deserved three points.
