Eskvale on form

Eskvale remain undefeated in their run of games so far this season.

It was a top of the table clash on Saturday with both teams eager for a win to secure top position in the league, but the game finished 3-3.

Peebles took the lead early during the first half when their striker deflected a cross from the right wing which beat the Eskvale keeper.

The Peebles goal was very much against the run of play, but Eskvale quickly got back into the game and within a few minutes Lorraine Nicholson-Bennett took the ball past the defence and slotted in the equaliser.

Eskvale dominated the rest of the first half and went ahead through some clever play by Shirley Gallacher, as she beat three defenders and then finished with a beautiful strike from a very tight angle.
