Hannah Brice’s first half hat-trick helped Raith Rovers Rhinos to a 6-5 victory over Bayside Bulldogs at Pitreavie Sports Ground in the SWF Fife League U13’s.
The Rhino’s started well and were ahead after 5 five minutes through Mya Finley’s effort. Bayside responded well to going behind and the home side drew level 4 minutes later. Hannah Brice would grab her first of the afternoon to move her side into the lead and would double their advantage ten minutes later.
As the half came to an end Brice would cap an impressive performance by completing her hat-trick.
With a 4-1 deficit to overcome Bayside exerted pressure and would tie the scoreline at 4-4 as the clock struck 38. The sides were again separated in the Rhino’s favour through Eilidh Fargie. Having recovered from 4-1 Bayside would again restore parity in 56 minutes before Mya Finley would secure the victory for the Rhino’s on 60 minutes.
Having shown great character to come out on top in an entertaining high scoring encounter the Rhino’s will look to the next match with Penicuik Athletic Blues with confidence.
