Fjordhus Reivers 2s 7

Liberton 2

FJORDHUS Reivers produced some fantastic hockey on Saturday to record a 7-2 win over Liberton.

With only four games left of the season Reivers need as many points as possible to finish top of the league for a second year running.

The game started with lots of pressure in the visiting team's defence and lots of shooting opportunities narrowly missed by the home side.

But with some slick passing through midfield the first Reivers goal came from a strike at the top of the cirlce by Sara Robson.

This was the first of four for Robson as soon after she scored the second of the match with a long ball up the pitch from Holly Shepherd from defence into the top corner, Robson used her skills successfully along the baseline and slipped the ball into the net.

After a well worked penalty corner Laura McLean gained her first goal with a deflection from the back post.

And not long after her second came from a rebounded shot straight to her stick allowing her to slip the ball passed the keeper's feet.

A lack of concentration in the home sides defence meant that the visitors' first goal was scored minutes before half time.

But Fjordhus didn't drop their heads as Robson scored her third goal in the dying seconds of the first half from a quick break through the visitors' defence and a one on one with the keeper.

Going into the second half Reivers kept up the pressure with lots of shots on goal, however with a strong visitors' keeper failed to get the ball into the goal.

After some well worked penalty corners not quite reaching the goal, Keira Donlevy scored her first of the match from linking passes with Denise Fairbairn up the pitch and a clean shot into the bottom corner of the goal.

Another quick break for the visitors left Reivers conceding a second goal but that wasn't the last from them.

With a huge team effort in the last five minutes, linking passes across the midfield Laura McLean picking the ball up on the left drove up the pitch into the visitors circle and found Robson waiting on the penalty spot for an easy tap into the goal and her fourth of the match.

A great team effort from everyone and a well deserved win as the season is quickly coming to an end.

Reivers 2s travel up Edinburgh this weekend to play third place Edinburgh Uni 4s for a 4pm start at Peffermill.
