The future's bright, the future's orange!
Glasgow City took on Falkirk Futures at a packed Toryglen. Right from the off it was clear that Glasgow City copy their senior team with composed passing and a high pressing game.
Murron Cunningham opened the scoring for Glasgow City with a great shot into the top corner. City continued to pressed and Cunningham almost got her second with the Falkirk keeper pulling off a fine save in the Falkirk goal.
Falkirk almost equalised with a breakaway from Leah Eddie but Kenzi Dickson done a great block. Brogan Hay was next to try her luck for sitting with a great turn and shot before Olivia Crawford rattled the crossbar for City.
City made it 2-0 with a great move from the back and run from Katie Rice which was finished expertly by Chantelle Knox. Cunningham and Hay almost increased City’s lead before Knox hit the post with another effort.
The Falkirk keeper then pulled off a fine save from Olivia Crawford to yet again to deny City. City dominated the first half with their passing and movement which was a joy to watch.
However, Falkirk were never out of the game with Megan Gallagher and Zoe Young working exceptionally hard and Lyndsey Blues organising the defence well.
Glasgow City continued to dominate the second half with Blues denying Rice before Falkirk created a great chance and Katia McKenna hit just over the city bar.
City eventually got the second half breakthrough when Megan Whiteford blasted the ball into the top right hand corner. Crawford then provided a defence splitting pass for Lucy Ronald to expertly finish for number four.
Straight from kick off Falkirk pulled one back when Carly Lauder chipped the keeper. This was nothing more than what Falkirk deserved for their hard work. However Olivia Crawford was to have the final say in the match turning and firing into the bottom corner to restore Glasgow City’s four goal lead.
Glasgow City fully deserved their victory creating the majority of the chances and dominating possession. Dickson was very composed in defence with Rice and Cunningham always dangerous with driving runs however my MOTM goes to Brogan Hay.
Falkirk were a credit to their coaches never giving up and playing the game in a tremendous spirit. There were alot of stars in the team with Erin Harrison and Natalie Wilson deserving special mention however my MOTM goes to Lyndsey Blues.
