New Revolution 3 v Deltmavine 1
The second game of the night for the New Rev, was going to be another hard one against the strong Deltmavine team looking to get some more points on the board.
And it showed, with Deltmavine starting the first half with some quick movement up front from Alastair Williamson, Ross MacDougal and Fraser Hall, keeping the New Rev defence of Jessica Badley, Debbie Sneddon and Peter Sharp on their toes.
New Rev were always looking dangerous with quick counter attacks from Danny Finnie, Stacey Laurenson and Kate Moncrieff, but it was Deltmavine that took the lead with a great through ball from the ever reliable Nicola Blance, who found Hall in the D to cut it back to the on rushing MacDougal to finish for.
This spurred the New Rev on and with some great work in the centre Finnie was able to spread the ball wide left to find Laurenson in the D and with a quick shot she brought out a great save from Megan Nicholson. But the ball fell to Finnie who had kept his run going to dispatch off the rebound to get the New Rev back on level terms.
With the confidence of the goal New Rev started playing their fast passing game again, and it wasn’t long until they were rewarded with some short corners. It was from one of these short corners that Stacey Laurenson was able to get on the score sheet with a great strike into the bottom left corner of the goal.
Deltmavine had a few chances to get back in the game with one falling to Hall who brought out the best from the on-form Bradley in the New Rev goal.
New Rev were able to get another goal before the half-time whistle from another short corner which was well worked from Sharp and Laurenson. Sharp was able to squeeze the ball home from a tight angle with a sweet finish.
The second half got underway with Deltmavine determined to get back into the game. New Rev’s team worked tirelessly from the front with Lorrie Robertson, Mhari Moncrieff and Finnie in the middle never giving up and closing down the Deltmavine players, giving them no time to break through the defence.
Deltmavine were finding Debbie Sneddon in fine form and Delt’s Williamson particularly found it hard to get any joy up against her. Deltmavine had a good number of chances in the second half, but could not beat the outstanding Bradley in goal for New Rev.
Players of the match would have to be Jessica Bradley for New Rev and Ross MacDougal for Deltmavine.
