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

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.
