Scalloway 4 v Burra 0
Scalloway won their first victory in the Rosebowl against local rivals Burra, after an inspirational team talk saw the players leap into action with strong play throughout the field.
Their efforts bore fruit when Lynne Scollay picked up a Meg Laurenson cross to slot the ball home.
The team’s confidence grew, winning several short corners and filling the Burra circle that eventually led to a second goal from Kate Moncrieff, after Mhairi Moncrieff hit the post.
Scalloway maintained their focus and control in the second half, but they nearly broke under pressure piled on by their rivals. But Burra’s heads fell when Meg Laurenson made it 3-0 and Michaela Johnson put the result beyond doubt with a fourth.
Sarah Young was deserved player of the match for Burra and for Scalloway, Rhiannon Inkster and Kerri Redfern.
Delting 3 v Zetland 2
Delting started the game on top of the action, with Toni Sidgwick playing outside of goal for the first time this season and scoring the first goal of the match, though Zetland managed to level the score before half-time thanks to an Erika Leask deflection.
A series of short corners to Delting eventually resulted in their second goal from Ashley Burgess, but Zetland remained strong in defence and refused further access, finally equalising after a good run from young Lynsey Morrison.
With teams battling for the decider, it was Sidgwick who put the north team ahead and no amount of effort from their opponents could change the scoreline.
Dawn Anderson was player of the match for Zetland, while Donna Murray was picked for Delting.
Zetland 1 v Spurs 4
A positive start from Zetland was soon overwhelmed by Spurs, with Spurs scoring three times in the first half through Emma Gray, Fiona Shearer and Emma Inkster.
Ava Sim made it 4-0 from a well taken short corner, but Zetland did finally win one back thanks to Helen Robertson.
Best on the night for Spurs was Susan Morrison and Joanne Stewart for Zetland.
