D2 Women, Goals, woodwork and cards oh my
The D2 ladies looked to keep their unbeaten run going as they took on table toppers SFFC on Friday night at Finlayson.

The game had a good ebb and flow with de good passing moves from both sides. With the deadlock being broken on a long range free kick that floated in top shelf.

Credit to the home side as their heads did not drop and they continued to grow into the game and create chances. It was with great tenacity from Louise down the left by-line that created the equalizer for Niki to fire in from about 10 yards.

That goal galvanized the home side as they pushed for the go ahead goal. More chances came for both sides with the best falling to the Wests as they rattled a post and had numerous corners that were dangerously provided by Andrea.

Finally the break through came after a corner and a bit of a scramble in the box that resulted in a deflect shot from Becca nestling in the back of the net.

Before the half was over the physical nature of the game amped up and the ref had to brandish a yellow card to SFFC for a harsh body slam from behind on Kiera who didn't see it coming.

Second half was much like the first with chances, tough tackles, more woodwork and another card.

Some impressive efforts from the home side with the most notable coming from another Andrea corner met by Niki but it struck the bar. P> Unfortunately the home side could not add to their lead or hold on to it and eventually SFFC were able to slide the equalizer home for a final score of 2-2.

The unbeaten run continues and considering that was the top team, it was a great result as the confidence continues to build for the D2 team.
