It was a thrilling end to a thrilling match in the Under 15 girls Inter Regional Cup Final, where South East snatched it on penalties against a very strong West side who actually did the same to the visitors the year prior. It was a credit to girls youth football as some of the play during the match was fabulous to watch and both sides should be proud of there self walking off the pitch at Toryglen.
The match started at a very high pace with West really going for it in the first fifteen minutes a lot of quick one two's and clever diagonal balls from the home side was pushing South East deep in to their own half not really allowing them to play.
West may have ran themselves out of steam a little bit in the opening stages however as they got a bit lazy and it cost them dearly as South East opened the scoring after great hold up play from Monica Anderson. Anderson then did well to play through Caitlin Russell who raced in on goal and fired home with ease.
Last year's winners looked shaky after conceding the first and just couldn't get back in to the game, they nearly lost another goal as Monica Anderson ran onto a long ball that the keeper was reluctant to come for but Kiera Gibson in the West goal made up for it when she pulled off a great one on one save to keep her team's spirit up.
Brogan Hay was a threat to South East straight from the off and it was her who was the star in West's equaliser. Hay picked up the ball and drove with pace at the defenders she then smashed a shot which smashed off the post and fell to the feet of Nicola Miller who slotted home with ease into a empty net.
Just before half time both teams had the chance to go in at the break ahead but never capitalised. Firstly it was South East when the ball fell kindly to Lauren Watters inside the box but she couldn't keep her cool to finish. West's chance came a little closer however when Amy Muir's shot from the edge of the box was spilled by the keeper but eventually kept out, to keep her side on level terms at the interval.
