Young Reivers thirds blitz Dunbar

Fjordhus Reivers III6


Following victory in the reverse fixture Dunbar Ladies would have been looking forward to repeating the feat on their own turf, but the young Borders side had other ideas.

From the whistle, Reivers played well with some hard work both on and off the ball rewarded with an early goal by midfielder Caitlin Wright.

A lovely reverse-hit shot from Lara Patterson put the home side 2-0 up after just 10 minutes with another goal, from a Caitlin Wright penalty corner, taking the home side into a 3-0 lead at half-time.

After the restart, some lovely work by Chloe Richardson provided Alex Bell with an opportunity to score on her league debut to make it 4-0.

Solid defensive work by Emily Rogers and Kira Renilson meant that Dunbar’s attempts to come back into the game were eliminated and a goal apiece from Camilla Smith and Katy Nimmo gave the Reivers smooth passage to the top of Division Three.
