Fjordhus Reivers 4s took on Kelso Ladies 2s in a hard-fought local derby at a storm-ravaged Tweedbank.
Reivers started brightly and quickly put Kelso under pressure, with wave after wave of attacking hockey, and it wasn’t long before Reivers opened the scoring with a well-taken goal from Molly Macpherson.
Reivers were unable to increase their lead in the first half, as Kelso’s defence stayed strong and their ‘keeper made some good saves.
With the weather worsening and, after a rousing team talk, Reivers started the second half with more belief, determination and a newly-found hunger.

They put Kelso under pressure again and, with 45 minutes on the clock, up popped Beth Anderson to increase Reivers’ lead.
Kelso were proving hard to break down but that didn’t stop Reivers from making some great leads into the circle.
They were rewarded with a Kacey Edmison goal and, with 10 minutes left to play, Reivers scored again after a penalty corner to finish the game with a 4-0 win.
