Six-shoot­ers Murieston down Stenny

West Lothian Courier - - Sports -

In the Scottish Women’s Foot­ball League Two Cen­tral, Murieston played host to Sten­house­muir in what looked set to be a tight re­match of last month’s dra­matic League Cup tie – but it was to be a far more com­fort­able af­fair this time for the home side.

A per­for­mance marked by high-tempo pass­ing and press­ing en­sured that the home side ran out firm vic­tors at Bank­ton Mains, with 6-2 the fi­nal score in the mid-ta­ble clash.

The re­sult takes Murieston four points clear of their op­po­nents, only be­hind sixth-place Hamil­ton Aca­dem­i­cal on goal difference. East Kil­bride visit this Sun­day.

Black­burn United may not have had the per­fect start to their SWFL 1 South sea­son but they can be more than proud of Sun­day’s spir­ited efforts against sec­ond-placed Rangers De­vel­op­ment.

Af­ter match­ing Rangers for the full 90 min­utes, a heart­break­ing win­ner in the sixth minute of in­jury time con­signed Black­burn to a 5-4 de­feat.

There were plenty of pos­i­tives for coach Con­nor McCloskey to build on how­ever, as his side now take a two week break be­fore vis­it­ing Bor­ough­muir This­tle in what is shap­ing up to be a key clash for both sides.

They have shown they can mix it with most teams in the divi­sion and will be tar­get­ing a vic­tory.
