Swifts’ five-star show

Evening Telegraph (Late Extra Edition) - - WOMEN’S -

JEAN­FIELD Swifts Women’s De­vel­op­ment got back to win­ning ways last week with a

5-3 win away to East

Fife Vi­o­lets in the SWFL2.

After go­ing ahead through a Tara Laugh­lin strike in the first half, Swifts then con­ceded be­fore the striker, who is the club’s top scorer this sea­son, got her sec­ond just be­fore half-time.

In the sec­ond pe­riod, Laugh­lin net­ted her hat-trick while Louise Mc­clel­land made it 4-1.

East Fife fought back to 4-3 due to lapses in the Swifts de­fence but Kait­lyn Doig was on hand two min­utes from time to seal the vic­tory with a fine strike across the keeper.

There were good per­for­mances all over the park, with the mid­field tri­umvi­rate of Rachel Wolecki, Paula Strathie and Eilidh Davies, in par­tic­u­lar, dom­i­nant in the first half.

How­ever, it was hat­trick hero Laugh­lin who stole the show, giv­ing Swifts three much­needed points to move off the bot­tom of the table.
