The U15 girls faced Peterhead Academy at home in the league this afternoon. After giving away an early goal they worked hard to compete fiercely in difficult conditions. Two goals from Olivia (S2) and one from Abby (S1) brought us level and the score stayed at 3-3 for the majority of the second half, however Peterhead scored with a minute to go to make it a 4-3 win for them. The girls impressed us with their positive approach and worked effectively as a team and are making progress every game.
The team travelled to Ellon yesterday and faced a well organised and composed Ellon side. After a difficult first half the team bounced back and worked hard to bring back the deficit, putting lots of pressure on the Ellon players and being rewarded by a goal from Leia (S1). However three late goals by Ellon led to a comfortable win for them. The team wore their new pink kit for the first time, this was purchased through fundraising by the players as well as a financial contribution from our parent council.
Another good performance from our U15 girls this afternoon. In an entertaining match V Lochside in the Scottish shield we finished 7-3 winners meaning we progress through to the next stage.
Goal scorers were Abby (S1) who got two, Olivia (S2) who also scored two and Olivia (S3) with a hatrick. A huge thank you to Elanor (S2) and Amy (S1) who took a 1/2 each in goals.
The girls have made a superb start to their season and we look forward to further matches after the October break.
Our U15 girls started their season with a competitive match v Meldrum Academy at home. The team worked hard and our goal scorers were Olivia (S2), Abby (S1), Leia (S1) and Daisy (S1). The team demonstrated a lot of potential, but unfortunately we were defeated this time. We are excited for our forthcoming matches next week : Monday home v Turriff in the league and Friday home v Lochside in the Scottish shield.
Day one was a resounding success, as we got settled into our accommodation and made a start on our activities. Group A were straight in at the deep end (quite literally), as they took on a challenging gorge scramble. Group B followed that in the evening. Group C had a dry day and have still to tackle a wetsuit, but today we are river day all day, then gorge scrambling in the evening. Sure they will sleep well tonight!
