A cold and windy day saw Monifieth Ladies FC U15 take on Dunfermline in a close and exciting league cup contest on our home pitch at Riverview. Dunfermline piled on the pressure from the start but a couple of great saves from Monifieth goalkeeper Louise Christie, ably assisted by our strong defence, meant that Dunfermline were denied an early breakthrough. Halfway through the first half Monifieth began to get more into the game with some great movement however they didn't manage to get their noses in front with a couple of squandered chances.
Minutes into the second half, a mistake at the back from Monifieth allowed Dunfermline’s striker a clear run on goal and she finished high into the corner of the net to break the deadlock. Monifieth continued with the attacking play but yet again all of their chances and opportunities went a-begging. Monifieth were given a chance to pull level from a Georgie Simpson free kick which unfortunately skimmed over the crossbar and not long after Monifieth won another free kick which Becky Milne took with the same result as Georgie's!
Monifieth continued to push forward with some good passing football. The home side continued to battle and look for the equaliser and changes were made by both teams. With 10 mins to go Dunfermline managed to penetrate Monifieth's defence which resulted in another goal for the visitors. Monifieth never gave up and continued to attack but another chance was missed when Chloe Robertson hit the woodwork.
A competitive game that resulted in a 2-0 victory for our visitors.
