Senior Girls Football

The Senior Girls football team played Boroughmuir in the last 16 of the Scottish Cup on Tuesday 13 December.

The game was played even though the weather condition were terrible, due to high winds and rain. Even with this both teams adapted to the conditions well and contributed to a good game of football.

Both teams went into the game full of confidence of proceeding to the last 8 of the Scottish Cup. With the game end to end and both teams trying to take the lead the game was full of incidents.

Preston Lodge started to take advantage in the midfield and through this they got the break when Emmelie Young went through one on one with the goalkeeper to score and take a  1-0 lead. This is how it stayed until half-time due to some outstanding defending from the time and great save from Jennifer Currie.

The team started the second half with more urgency to get the second goal. They had a couple of opportunities through Hannah Bruce and Rebecca McArthur, but the Boroughmuir goalkeeper kept the score to 1-0.

With the score at 1-0 Boroughmuir had a free-kick in the last minute. Preston Lodge had to defend and two great saves from Jennifer Currie brought the game to a close and sent the girls through to the last 8 of the Scottish Cup.
