U19 Girls Reach Scottish Cup Final
Dunfermline WPC U19 girls continued on from where the senior women had finished following their 10-1 semi final win on Saturday, and comfortably won their Scottish Championship Semi Final on Sunday 19 Mar when they defeated Warrender 16-6 at NSA.
All the team played well with 6 different players eventually getting on the scoresheet.
Dunfermline started well scoring 3 goals (Aimee, Claire and Libby) inside the first 3 mins before Warr responded with 1 goal. 3-1 to Dunfermline at the end of the period.
The 2nd saw Dunfermline take more control of the game as their numerical advantage enabled them to keep up the tempo whilst coach Calum ensured all the younger players enjoyed plenty of pool time. Dunfermline extended their lead with goals from Claire, Niamh (3) and Libby to only 2 in reply to go ahead 8-3 at half time.
