Scalloway 0 v Zetland 3
A NINE strong Scalloway team missing several key players gave it all they had and were soon putting pressure on the Zetland defence, who held strong. Scalloway’s early attempts at goal went wide or were cleared.
Zetland pushed back with strong accurate passing, but Scalloway also put up a good defence with Lara Kay, Julie Brown and Anne-Marie Robinson working well together.
Not long into the second half Zetland opened the scoring with a goal from Erica Mikolajczak soon followed by a second from Maisie Unsworth.
A tiring Scalloway won a penalty corner, but Zetland cleared it and piled on the pressure, which was rewarded when Eildh Couli managed to slot the ball home off a rebound. Scalloway never gave up but failed to score.
Players of the match were Scalloway’s Kerri Redfern and Zetland’s Hanna Irvine.
Spurs 3 v Delting 0
A more confident and relaxed Spurs quickly settled after winning the toss, their midfield spreading balls well and the defence standing up to Deltinmg’s counter attacks.
Sarah Grogan scored first after a one two with Fiona Shearer. After a couple of substitutions, Shearer started a move involving Emma Gray, fresh off the bench, who passed to Grogan to make it her second of the night.
Delting came out fighting in the second half and won a penalty when Lorraine Duncan brought down Elaine Smith, but the north team failed to convert their opportunity.
As the game settled down saw both sides play well. Shearer was replaced by striker Karen McKay who tapped in a third for Spurs from close range after a smart attacking move.
Delting’s player of the match was Nicola Blance, while Andrea Tait stood out for Spurs.
