Sh­effield Shad­ows ...................... 2 Sol­way Sharks Ladies ................. 5

Sol­way Sharks ladies, who re­main un­beaten so far this sea­son, played their third league fix­ture away against Sh­effield Shad­ows on Satur­day.

The Sharks were boosted by the re­turn of top points scorer from last year Beth Milne.

The first pe­riod started with both teams evenly matched but an out­stand­ing goal from Shad­ows Hazel Wil­son in front of Sharks’ net-min­der Re­bekah Scott put them 1-0 in front after seven min­utes.

The Sharks ap­plied the pres­sure and equalised after 11 min­utes through Me­gan Gourlay as­sisted by Re­becca Ni­col to make it 1-1.

With the Sharks well on top, they scored their sec­ond through cap­tain Karen Craig as­sisted by Gourlay to make the end of pe­riod score 2-1 to the Sharks.

The sec­ond pe­riod saw the Dum­fries team out shoot their op­po­nents 16 to three but they couldn’t find a way past Rachel Raw­son in the Shad­ows nets.

In the third pe­riod, and after a quiet word in the for­wards’ ears by coach But­ters, the Sharks scored their third after two min­utes through Milne as­sisted by Gourlay.

Five min­utes later de­fence­man Re­becca Ni­col scored the Sharks fourth in 46 min­utes as­sisted by Gourlay and a minute later the fifth was scored by Gourlay in 47 min­utes.

The Shad­ows Hazel Wil­son scored her sec­ond in 48 min­utes and Shad­ows sec­ond to leave the fi­nal score 5-2 to the Sharks.

Shots on goal, 14 on Scott, 35 on Raw­son.

Spirit of the game went to Me­gan Gourlay.

The next home game is on Satur­day, Novem­ber 25 against Whit­ley Bay.
