Rutherglen Reformer - - The Back Page - Chris McQuade

Ruther­glen Girls un­der 13s are through to the sec­ond round of the Scot­tish cup af­ter see­ing off Mil­ton Girls on Satur­day morn­ing.

An ac­com­plished per­for­mance at Ban­nock­burn High School, Stir­ling, saw the girls con­tinue their im­pres­sive start to the sea­son with an 8-0 vic­tory over their lat­est op­po­nents.

Mor­gan Mar­shall and Charley McQuade both bagged braces in the open­ing half and an­other from Lucy M saw the girls stride into the break with a five-goal cush­ion.

De­fen­sive duo Emily Mo­ran and cap­tain Rachel Crighton put in an­other com­mand­ing per­for­mance to clear any dan­ger be­fore it lead to any trou­ble for Ruther­glen ‘keeper Lo­gan McMul­lan.

De­spite dom­i­nat­ing most of the game they failed to cap­i­talise fur­ther, with Mil­ton goal­keeper keep­ing her side in the match with a string of im­pres­sive saves.

The sec­ond half was much the same with Ruther­glen re­tain­ing most of the pos­ses­sion.

Goals from Lucy M and a dou­ble for Char­lie McGhee, who went off in­jured af­ter a col­li­sion in the first half, sealed the Royal Burgh’s side’s place in the next round of the cup and kept up a storm­ing start to the sea­son with an­other im­pres­sive dis­play.

Man­ager Brian O’Neil said: “We were a not our­selves to­day, there was some­thing lack­ing. But a win is a win.”
