Kelso Ladies 2
EAST LADIES’PREMIER DIVISION
KELSO Ladies travelled to Tranent to play local rivals Peebles on Saturday.
Kelso finally settled into their game after about 20 minutes in the first half and were unfortunate on a number of occasions not to take advantage of the scoring opportunities they made.
Their persistence paid off when Natasha MacLaren picked up a great pass and confidently took on two players before sweeping a great shot into the bottom corner of the goal.
Seconds after restarting, confident Kelso were back on the attack and this time it was striker Corrine Bird who picked up a pass in the circle and did not think twice before firing a shot into the bottom corner, leaving the goalkeeper with no chance.
The second half found Kelso Ladies creating yet more chances, however, they could not capitalise on them.
This was a very important win for Kelso Ladies which gives them a bit of breathing space from the bottom of the league table.
Kelso: L. Blaikie, T. Patterson, K. Carruthers, D. Paxton, N. McKay, J. Lofthouse, G. Thomson, E. Pate, S. Green, N. McLaren, S. Fleming, J. Laing, L. Laing and C. Bird.
