Glasgow Girls Secure Second And EUHV Win Edinburgh Derby – SBS SWPL 2 Roundup – 12 Nov 17

Glasgow Girls Secure Second

Glasgow Girls hosted Motherwell, knowing that if they avoided defeat they would finish the season in second place – and they secured second with a 3-0 win.

Gillian Sloey put Glasgow Girls in front in the 30th minute, and the score would remain 1-0 at half-time.

A minute into the second half, Kirsty MacDonald doubled their lead and five minutes later, Lauren Evans secured the win.

EUHV Triumph In The Edinburgh Derby

Edinburgh University Hutchison Vale (EUHV) beat Hearts 2-1 in an epic Edinburgh derby.

EUHV took the lead in the 37th minute when Margaux Durand-Watson set up Beth MacLeod who fired the ball into the back of the net.

Anna Hume looked like she had made the win safe when she doubled their lead in the 75th minute.

However, five minutes later, Hearts pulled a goal back and then they won a penalty – but it was brilliantly saved by Charlotte Parker-Smith’s left foot.

The result means that EUHV finishes the season in fourth, two places above Hearts.

East Fife Win Battle Of Relegated Teams

Buchan hosted East Fife and whilst both sides were already relegated, the winner would finish the season in seventh.

Buchan went 2-0 up, but East Fife fought back in the second half to win 4-2 thanks to a hat-trick from Teri Skivington and a goal from Liz Corke.

Champions Win Final Game

Forfar Farmington was presented with the SBS SWPL 2 trophy as they beat Jeanfield Swifts 4-0.

Danni McGinley put Forfar 1-0 up mid-way through the first half, but it would take until the 71st minute for them to double their lead when Kayleigh Noble converted from Robyn Smith’s cutback.

They would score twice in the next four minutes, with McGinley using her strength to score her second and then Beth Shillitto reacted quickly to tap the ball in after Nicola Davidson’s free-kick was fumbled by the Jeanfield’s keeper.

Forfar begins their preparations for the top flight whilst Jeanfield finishes the season in fifth place.
