On a crisp sunny Sunday morning at Poltonhall Recreation Ground, Bonnyrigg Rose and Hutchison Vale under 13s girls’ teams played out a Section C game in the League Cup.
With both teams starting the new season unbeaten this was a battle for top spot in the section.
Bonnyrigg started the game well with a few chances for Erin Brigham and Nicole Selkirk, although the home keeper Courtney McDonald was called into action with an excellent save to finish 0-0 at half time.
The Rose started the second half well and eventually took the lead with a glancing header from Ruth Gorman. Bonnyrigg then increased their lead when Nicole Selkirk eventually got a well deserved goal with an outstanding drilled effort from just outside the box. Ruth Gorman then went on to score a second header from a tremendous throw in by Rebecca Cawkwell which was bulleted into the roof of the net to put the Rose 3-0 up.
Bonnyrigg then proceeded to hit the bar twice through Nicole Selkirk and had two direct goals from throw ins by Rebecca Cawkwell disallowed.
Full time score Bonnyrigg 3 – Hutchison Vale 0.
