Our thanks to Claire Moloney who stepped in at very short notice to ref the first 2 games, the table officials who had the ‘control box’ to contend with and Julia Mackay who came through to ref the final game.
Larkhall were the first opposition and this promised to be a tough, physical challenge. Close marking and great defending ensured Dunfermline kept Larkhall at bay whilst Harris opened the scoring within the first minute with a solo effort from a quick counter attack. Niamh showed her skill with 2 further goals as Dunfermline edged ahead, her 2nd from long range with just 2 secs remaining to give Dunfermline a 3-0 lead going into the 2nd period.
The 2nd period was a close and even period although missed chances prevented Dunfermline from stretching their lead.
