’Burgh hit back after the break
DRYBURGH U/13 won 5-2 away to Raith Rovers in the SFA East League Cup quarter-final.
One down at half-time, ’Burgh turned it round with a fantastic second-half performance.
Scorers were Player-of-theMatch Olivia Hurrell (2), Kiara Moran (2) and Teighan Milne.
Coaches Ryan Hurrell and Sandy McWilliam deserve credit, too, having worked their socks off with their talented side.
’Burgh’s U/17 beat a good Westdyke Thistle side 5-1 at Fairmuir Park.
The visitors took an early lead but goals from Amy Healey and Katie Shaw saw Dryburgh 2-1 up at half-time.
In the second half the hosts upped their game and scored another three without reply through Brodie Clark, Deon Hamilton and Shaw.
The result sends the 17s to the top of their league.
Dryburgh Girls U/11 continued their steady improvement last week against Blairgowrie & Rattray at Lochee Park.
Both teams showed great sportsmanship and gave their all for the full game, entertaining the watching parents and coaches.
Dryburgh Ladies went down 6-2 at Invergowrie against a decent Edinburgh Caledonia side.
Hope Ramage and Steffi Simson were the home scorers.
A big positive from the Ladies game was the involvement of several U/17 players.
Bethany McDonald, Brodie Clark and Amy Reilly all made their senior debuts and gave a good account of themselves.
Charley Finlayson and Katie Shaw were also on the bench.
These girls now join youngsters Nyla Murphy and Neve Guthrie in the growing list of 17s making the step up to Ladies football this season.
Dryburgh Girls are looking for a couple of new coaches. Anyone interested please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
