Double figures for Stoney Ladies

Stonehaven ladies travelled north to face Buchan Ladies

Stonehaven took some time to settle down and get their passing game going.

The first goal came 17th minutes in, Ferries racing passed the Buchan defence and finished calmly, low into the net. Stoney got their second in the 35th minute, Taylor with her first of the match.

Half time Buchan Ladies Youth 0 - 2 Stonehaven Ladies FC

The second half was much more impressive from Stoney with Buchan rarely troubling Paterson in the Stoney goal.

The third goal saw Taylor get her second of the match. The fourth goal came from E.Bowie, after some great wing play on the right, she drove into the box and smashed the ball over the keeper and into the top left corner. The next goal came from Urquhart, volleying the ball high into the net leaving the Buchan keeper with no chance. The next goal saw Taylor complete her hat trick, good play between herself and Urquhart and Taylor found herself through on goal and she made no mistake from close range.

E.Bowie then got her second and Stoney’s seventh goal. It was then Gauld’s turn to get her name of the score sheet, a stunning 35 yard free kick. A great cross from E.Bowie on the right found Taylor in the box to head home her fourth goal. Gauld finished the scoring on the 88th minute. This result leaves Stoney 1 point off the top of the table going into next week’s must win game.

Next game for Stonehaven is a league fixture, at home against unbeaten league leaders Deevale Ladies on the August 31.
