The under 13’s arrived at a rain soaked Kinross for the final game of the 2015 season and the girls knew this was a must win game to confirm an impressive fourth place finish in their first full competitive campaign.
The game got of to a quick start and the Strollers promptly found themselves one up early on when a penalty for hand ball was converted by the clinical Kerys Blyth.
Despite this set-back for the hosts they equalised soon after when some quick passing ended with a fine goal by their strong centre forward.
The pitch was starting to cut up as the first half wore on, due to the terrible conditions, but Strollers managed to find the net a further twice before the break with goals by Kerys Blyth and Brodie Clark.
Half time – 1-3
Our girls changed things up at half time with Daniela Florez going in goal and Betheney Scott moving into midfield. The latter grabbed a fourth goal for Strollers with a great run from the half way line ending up in the net with a composed finish.
The fourth goal seemed to knock the stuffing out of Kinross and the visitors went on to grab another two goals to see the game finish 1-6 to Strollers. Brodie Clark grabbed the fifth and Denver Hopkins, who had had numerous attempts on goal on the day, scored the sixth – which proved to be Strollers final goal of the season.
Kinross tried to rally in the second half but our girls stood strong, as they have done so often this season, to claim the three points and cap off a wonderful campaign.
Our girls can be proud of themselves with the way they pushed some of the other more fancied teams in the league this campaign, and can look forward to next season with confidence.
Final score: Kinross 1-6 Strollers
