Stoney girls lose out to Elgin City


Stonehaven Youth Girls u-13 v Elgin City (away) League 1-3

Stoney Girls made the long trip to high flying Elgin and snatched an early lead when Townsend, Laing and Grundy combined to leave Porter to score at the back post. Grundy spun and shot and Laing narrowly missed as Stoney sought a second. Elgin came back into it with Traynor and a couple of Christie interceptions saving Stoney. Elgin equalised immediately after half time and added a soft second before a strong Kelly drive went close. A slaloming run and drive just over from Townsend signalled the end of Stoney’s resistance as Elgin added a late third and Imray blocked another.
