Ladies sides hit sum­mit

East Kilbride News - - READER TRAVEL -

Both ladies sides from East Kil­bride Hockey Club are sit­ting top of their re­spec­tive di­vi­sions af­ter a suc­cess­ful Satur­day.

The first XI faced Ar­gyle Ladies and had a crack­ing start at Dun­can­rig when Ali­son Alexan­der fed the ball through to Ju­lianna Mur­ciano to tap home from close range within the first few min­utes.

Alexan­der popped in the sec­ond goal mid­way through the half when a slip from the top D at a short cor­ner fell to her and she ri­fled home.

In the sec­ond half Sonya An­drews had a good strike saved on the line and the Ar­gyle keeper made some vi­tal stops with her feet to keep EK from scor­ing any more.

Fiona Wil­liamson was player of the match with Caro­line Deighan named op­po­si­tion player of the match in a game in which EK al­ways looked com­fort­able, if not ex­actly deadly.

The sec­ond XI played straight af­ter, rack­ing up a crack­ing 4-0 win against Hill­head 4s.

Kara Cole­man, later named player of the match, kicked things off with a goal

on the 14-minute mark be­fore Shona

Kin­loch scored a beauty 10 min­utes later. Paula Rich­mond made it three be­fore half time for clin­i­cal EK.

Just when it looked like fin­ish­ing 3-0, EK won a short cor­ner and Kin­loch slipped the ball in af­ter it hit the post.
