Queens Ladies Back On Form With Win Against Kilwinning

Queen of the South Ladies returned to league action when they welcomed Kilwinning ladies to the North West Community Campus on Sunday.  Queens started brightly and after only 5 minutes they opened the scoring with a well worked move.  Megan Murray made ground on the left before squaring the ball to Megan Masterton in a central position.  She in turn put the ball into space on the right hand side of the area for Hlly Ovens to fire into the net.  Queens continued to dominate the play and with 25 minutes gone Megan Murray again burst through on the left hand side, finishing with a well-placed low shot that went in at the right hand post despite the Kilwinning keeper getting a hand to it.  Queens kept the pressure on but weren’t able to create  many clear chances as the first half came to a close.


The second half was more even with Kilwinning coming into the game more, and Queens keeper Sophie Ingram had to pull off a couple of good saves to keep a clean sheet.  Queens play was a bit ragged at times, with passes going astray and an uncharacteristic lack of cohesion.  The Queens defence however coped with everything that Kilwinning could throw at them.  It wasn’t until the last minute of the game that Queens managed to grab a third goal, a penalty awarded for handball expertly placed into the corner by striker Lois Geddes, just recently returned from injury.  Not Queens’ best performance of the season so far, but they did enough to take the three points and maintain their position at the top of the league.
