Edinburgh Uni VI0

Fjordhus Reivers II3

Looking to escape relegation, Uni 6’s were hungry for a win. But it was clear from the start that Reivers wanted to control and dictate this game.

Ten minutes into the first half, Ashley Robson, Jenny Wright and Sara Robson split the home defence to slip the ball to Nicola Laing, who slammed the ball past the keeper.

Reivers maintained possession throughout and seconds before half-time a through ball by Kirsty Sharkey was picked up by Ashley Robson, who made a one-handed pass to sister Sara for a slick finish.

Any counter attacks from the university side were dealt with deftly by the defensive team of Lauren Grant, Maris Cawthorn and Alexa Knox and the third and decisive goal came from a free hit by Dizzy White who combined well with Tara Aitchison to open up the middle channel. A quick pass to Sharkey, who picked out Sara Robson spot perfect to gain her second of the game.
