Scotland dominate Montenegro using free flowing football and great defending, not letting the opponents have a single chance on goal.
Scotland created several early chances through low crosses by Freya MacDonald and Tegan Bowie which the opposing defenders struggled to deal with, however, Scotland failed to finish their chances with Rosie McQuillan and Rebecca McAllister coming close.
Scotland’s dominance came through in the 17th minute as Monica Forsyth found Eva Thomson who uses quick and effective footwork to create space and find a pass to McQuillan on the right to cut in and power a shot over the keeper’s head to open the scoring.
Scotland’s dominance continued throughout the first half as they barely let Montenegro complete a pass whilst chances are made by MacDonald as Kate Nicolson continuously found her down the right flank with great long passes which lead to McQuillan being denied by a nice diving save from Svetlana Milicic in Montenegro’s net.
In the 25th minute Scotland advantage was doubled as Forsyth made a skilful run to the by line before drilling a ball to McQuillan who played a final pass to Bayley Hutchinson to finish nicely past the keeper.
Scotland weren’t finished there as Forsyth cuts back to McQuillan who lobs the back goal-ward forcing a parry from the Montenegrin keeper which ends in the path of Hutchinson who powers the ball into the roof of the net after 35 minutes.
Scotland end the half strongly with chances from Rebecca McAllister and Nicolson coming close.
