Loch cruise to win over bot­tom club

Lennox Herald - - MOTORS -

Loch Lomond I trav­elled to play East Kil­bride II, who are sit­ting bot­tom of the league ta­ble.

The first 10 min­utes of the game were con­tained in the mid­field, with Loch Lomond push­ing high up the pitch to put pres­sure on the East Kil­bride de­fend­ers.

Goal num­ber one came from a well worked penalty cor­ner, with Molly Macken putting the fi­nal touch over the line for Loch Lomond.

A hard bat­tle en­sued around the East Kil­bride D and only some last-ditch de­fend­ing de­nied Loch Lomond an­other goal.

With the Loch Lomond de­fend­ers and mid­field­ers chal­leng­ing EK at ev­ery lo­ca­tion on the pitch, they rarely made it into the Loch Lomond back­field.

Goal num­ber two came just be­fore half-time, this time from an ex­cel­lent run and bril­liant fin­ish by Rosie McCol­gan.

Lomond came out of the blocks in an ex­plo­sive man­ner at the start of the sec­ond half and were three up within five min­utes cour­tesy of an ex­cel­lently placed strike once again by McCol­gan.

Goal num­ber four came shortly af­ter­wards when some great link­ing play tore the East Kil­bride de­fence apart and an on-fire Macken drew the keeper and coolly slot­ted the ball into the net.

The back three of Sue Monty-Aik­man, Han­nah Leach and Zubi Kofi worked off each other flaw­lessly, with Mon­tyAik­man con­stantly com­mu­ni­cat­ing to her two de­fend­ers about chal­leng­ing high.

An­other goal from McCol­gan and an­other two from Macken put the re­sult be­yond doubt but Loch Lomond had one more goal in the tank when cap­tainVanessa Sa­bala stuck the ball low and hard from the edge of the D.
