East Fife Ladies 6 - 1 City of Edinburgh
AFTER last week’s emphatic win over Dunfermline, East Fife entered this home friendly against a club from the South East Second Division with a positive attitude.
East Fife had made many changes from last week’s team, with Gibson in goal, McAllister starting wide left and Flatt starting up front.
The East Fife footballers started brightly and almost went ahead within the first two minutes, after a Wylie cross found Skivington’s run in to the box, only for her left-foot effort to fly just past the post.
The Edinburgh side was pacey but offered little in attack, and any goal-threatening attacks were easily mopped up by Kemp, Fitzpatrick and Reilly in defence.
Skivington then did find the net and put the Fifers ahead in a carbon copy of her first effort that had gone wide.
Wylie fired in a cross, having beaten the left-back, and Skivington found the bottom corner with a left-footed strike.
New Polish player Ewa Woch put the Fifers two up after beating a player from wide left and continuing into the box to steer a low right-footed drive in off the post.
The third goal was not long in coming, with Anderson finding the net after good play from McAllister and Clark.
Clark then made it 4-0 before half-time with a strong left-footed drive, after Anderson cut the ball from wide left to the edge of the box.
The Fifers offered more of the same in the second half, with Wylie finding the net, having cut in from the right to pass a great curling right-footed shot into the bottom corner.
Kemp made it 6-0 with a superb solo run from defence and a long-range effort, which moved in the air, leaving the ‘keeper with little chance.
The Edinburgh side got a late consolation goal after a Clark header in midfield carried backwards to Skivington, who passed back to the Fife ‘keeper.
Her clearance only managed to find the feet of the Edinburgh striker, who finished calmly.
