In this first match of the girls’ football season, Lomond Colts Girls Under-13s proved too strong for a plucky East Fife Violets Under-13 side.

Colts were quick off the mark with three early goals, and with slick passing and frequent breakaway moves the lead stretched to seven by half time.

Violets eventually found their feet though, and the second half proved to be a more even contest.

Highlights for Lomond included a powerful strike under the keeper from Tyler Rattray following a piercing run, whilst the tireless Isla Ryan in defence was player of the match.
