Nar­row win for ’Burgh

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Uk World Today -

DRY­BURGH de­feated Letham 1-0 in an U/15 friendly at Seven Acres, Perth.

The Perth girls started the game well and looked con­fi­dent when pass­ing the ball around.

Dry­burgh, who had Sasha Craig and Grace For­rester mak­ing their U/15 de­buts, started to ap­ply more at­tack­ing pres­sure but both de­fences stood firm un­til half-time.

Af­ter be­ing en­cour­aged to step it up a gear, the Letham girls did just that with Mikaela WIl­son and Cae­lan Clarke look­ing the clos­est to scor­ing.

Against the run of play, good skill al­lowed Dry­burgh’s Nyla Jay Mur­phy enough room to shoot and her ef­fort crept into the bot­tom cor­ner.

Letham were even more de­ter­mined to find the equaliser they so de­served but frus­tra­tion showed in front of goal and it fin­ished 1-0 to the Dundee side.

The match was played in a very sport­ing man­ner and credit must go the girls for this.

The game was a fan­tas­tic ad­vert for girls foot­ball within the East Re­gion with both teams look­ing sharp ahead of the new sea­son.

Dry­burgh Ath­letic girls are still look­ing for new play­ers at U/11 level. Con­tact dry­burgh­girls@gmail. com
