Sara Robson scored four times

The first Reivers goal came from a strike at the top of the circle by Sara Robson.

This was the first of four for Robson as she soon scored the second of the match with a long ball up the pitch from Holly Shepherd in defence into the top corner, Robson used her skills along the baseline and slipped the ball into the net.

After a well worked penalty corner Laura McLean gained her first goal with a deflection from the back post and not long after her second came from a rebound shot straight to her stick allowing her to slip the ball passed the keepers feet.

A lack of concentration in the home sides meant that the visitors first goal was scored minutes before half time but this didn’t drop their heads as Robson scored her third goal in the dying seconds of the first half from a quick break through the visitors defence and a one on one with the keeper.

Going into the second half Reivers kept up the pressure with lots of shots on goal however with a strong visitors keeper failed to get the ball into the goal.

Keira Donlevy scored her first of the match from linking passes with Denise Fairbairn up the pitch and a clean shot into the bottom corner.

Another quick break for the visitors left Reivers conceding a second goal but that wasn’t the last from them, with a huge team effort in the last five minutes linking passes across the midfield Laura McLean picking the ball up on the left drove up the pitch into the visitors circle and found Robson waiting on the penalty spot for an easy tap into the goal and her fourth.
