Erskine girls picked themselves up after previous defeats with a sensational victory. The Pollok girls showed classy finishing with some scintillating play which proved to be too much for the Erskine side on the magnificent pitch at Park Mains High School. 
The game started with a flash, with just three minutes on the clock the away side took the lead through Abby Kerr finishing neatly after finding herself through on goal.
Soon after this the home side were level after a goal line scramble saw Laura Corbett poke the ball home to level the match seven minutes in. 
The Pollok side then started to get going, with Kerr putting them back in front after finishing neatly from just outside the box, Watt then stretched the lead further just after ten minutes played scoring from close range.  
After the twenty five minute mark Pollok's advantage was increased as Hannah Stewart scored her first of the day from a corner.
Five minutes after producing their fourth Pollok got their fifth through Megan Lee. 
The goals were flooding in for the Pollok side and Hannah Stewart grabbed her second and third shortly before half time, finishing neatly from a ball played across the box and then curling one into the top corner to complete her hat-trick, a goal to remember.

The second half continued in the same vein as the first, with the Pollok side continuing to show off their brilliant passing game. The young Erskine side just found themselves unfortunate to be up against a team on fire. 
It took just 5 minutes for the second half scoring spree to continue. Joanne Wright made it 8-1 after a well placed finish. 
Megan Lee scored her second of the match just two minutes after this after a shot was blocked, Lee then picked up the ball, showing a neat turn and a cool finish from to give Pollok an eight goal lead with seven minutes of the second half played. 
The class of the Pollok side continued to be on show as Hannah Stewart scored her fourth goal of the match with a brilliant finish from outside the box.  
Abby Kerr tucked away her second after her volley went in via the post, the Erskine keeper can count herself unlucky with this one as she nearly managed to keep the strike out.
Joanne Wright then managed to bag herself another goal in what was a fine performance by her.
Erskine salvaged a goal as Maya Little finished very well, giving the home side something to be pleased about.
But yet again the Pollok side added to their lead, as Hannah Stewart got her fifth and final goal of the match. Molly Duncanson's solo effort gave the away support another thing to smile about. 
Shortly afterwards Megan Lee snatched the final goal of the game, gifting her a hat-trick.

Maya Little - Scored an excellent goal and looked very good for Erskine.
Hannah Stewart - 5 goals and some fantastic runs, really enjoyable to watch. Remember the name if you are interested in woman football could be a star in the making. Really good passer and can score an all round play-maker.
Magic Moment
Erskine Youth
Pollok United
Within the 3rd minute they had a chance and it was the best oppurtunity of the whole match, unluckily the number 3 couldn't finish.
Hannah Stewart's 3rd goal - curled in to the top corner and deserving goal to seal the hat-trick.
