Reckless 2, Filsket 2

Both teams started strongly but Reckless were on form and scored the first goal through Michael Johnson. Filsket equalised before half time with Gareth Robertson finding the back of the net.

Both teams played a brilliant and fast game which moved from end-to-end. Filsket were awarded a number of short corners but were unable to capitalise.

The second half was all to play for. Marvin Inkster played a brilliant game for Reckless and he cracked a home dinger past the Filsket goalie. Mel Inkster and Jessica Bradley stopped countless shots on goal for Reckless with Filsket goalie Vikki Anderson showing some good moves. Filsket were lucky and Scott Jarmson slipped a fly goal in past a grounded goalie just before full time.

Both teams played a fast game with Jessica Bradley getting the player of the match for Reckless and Victoria Duthie for Filsket.

Frankies 3, Reckless 2

The game started in a frantic fashion and it wasn’t long before Reckless found the backboard. Keeper Craig Sneddon had his legs wide open and Joyce Adamson made no mistake.

Sneddon redeemed himself, however, making superb saves to stop Bethany Laurenson from scoring.

With Frankies getting a foothold in the game they finally found their equaliser. Gayle Johnson found Josie Jamieson in the box who slotted home to cap off a memorable debut in the pink and black.

The second half started with Frankies looking to counter attack, with Sneddon making a few more saves to stop Michael Johnson and Georgia Laurenson.

Eventually speedster Ben Fulton raced on to a pass from Abbey Irvine and with no-one catching him he had the simple option of squaring the ball and Manson finished emphatically by flicking it into the goal.

A stripy jumper and a balaclava would have been more suitable attire for Stuart Lavender as he stole the ball after a hit out. He then cut inside into the circle and fired a clinical shot into the bottom corner.

With Melanie Inkster and Bethany Laurenson working hard in the midfield area Reckless got a late goal which their general play deserved, Joyce Adamson getting the better of Sneddon again, who was having a stormer.

In a thoroughly enjoyable match Sneddon was rewarded for a fine performance with player of the match for Frankies. Joyce Adamson was player of the match for Reckless.
