Monifieth Reds U13 have made a very good start to this season and tonight up at Forfar they put in another winning performance that saw them overpower a spirited Forfar Foxes side.
It was clear the Reds were up for tonight’s match when some crisp passing moves opened up the Foxes defence on a number of occasions and it was no surprise when the first goal of the evening eventually arrived. Libby Forster cleverly flicked the ball goalwards from a corner and although the Foxes keeper got a hand to it one of her defenders sliced the ball over her own goal line. Constant pressure form the Reds saw them continuing to carve open the Foxes defence and they extended their lead when Aimee Robertson drove through to then pass the ball in to the net. She scored her team’s third when she was quickest to the ball to fire home after the keeper had blocked a shot from Katie Shaw. Libby Forster found the net when she took charge of the ball in the Foxes box to strike the ball firmly in to the net. Kasey McCabe added a fifth when she powered through the Foxes defence to crack the ball home.
The second half saw the Reds playing downhill and from the off they were on the attack again. Some great passing play freed Katy Shaw in the Foxes box and after skipping past a couple of defenders she cracked the ball home. Kasey McCabe bagged her second goal of the night when she drove in from the left wing and gave the keeper no chance – 7-0 to the Reds. Aimee Robertson then bagged the goal of the night when she cracked in a screamer of a free kick that flew in to the far top corner! Kasey McCabe then really got the bit between her teeth and showed her strength as she bagged another four goals in a 10 minute blitz to really put the match out of sight! A final goal of the night came when Kasey passed to Aimee Robertson on the edge of the box who then placed a firm strike in to the bottom corner of the Foxes net.
A really impressive team performance all round from our pool of girls who are all working so hard for each other in every match that they play.
