League leaders to the four at Kelso


George Heriot II4

DESPITE an encouraging performance, Kelso Ladies lost at home to current league leaders George Heriot Seconds.

Kelso found themselves a goal down early on in the match as the city side converted a penalty corner.

A second goal was conceded when a high strike was deflected off the body of a Kelso defender.

A Kelso goal was disallowed late in the first half and the visitors extended their advantage when they scored from another well-executed penalty corner to make it 3-0 at half-time.

The home team did not give up and pressed hard in the second half, forcing the Heriot’s keeper in to a string of saves, and pulled one back when Evonne Jack finished with a clean strike.

The joy was short-lived, however, as the visitors finished off a penalty corner set-play to finish off the scoring.
