The homesters were awarded a corner which led to their third of the game. Stout swung the corner in and the ball went over the keeper’s head and into the back of the net.

Ferries then got Stonehaven’s fourth of the match and completed her hat-trick. Jamieson then got her name of the goal sheet, a long kick from Paterson in the Stonehaven goal cleared the Caithness defence and Jamieson raced onto the ball to finish low passed the keeper.
