Eskvale battle to draw

Fjordhus Borders 2, Eskvale I 2

The game started well, with Eskvale showing a lot of pressure, and it wasn’t long before one of Eskvale’s attacks ended in their first goal.

Shirley Gallacher took a quick free hit just on the 25yd line and dribbled it past a few defenders and into the circle, before hitting a brilliant ball into the left hand corner.

Play was back and forward, and Borders had a few goalmouth scuffles, but to no avail. At the other end, Eskvale put in some good passing from Anne Turner and Shirley Gallacher and Lorraine Nicholson-Bennett, which paid off when and Turner netted Eskvale’s second.

The second half saw a stronger Borders side, with player of the match Kerri Allan Borders scoring. Not long after Borders were level and Eskvale were struggling to keep them out. Eskvale were unlucky not to take the lead, but managed to keep the score level at 2-2.
