Saturday saw Linlithgow Rose Girls take on Bonnyrigg Rose Girls in an 15's clash at Linlithgow Leisure Centre.
Despite being self confessed "slow starters", Linlithgow Rose took early control of the ball and secured their first goal at the five minute mark. A long throw in allowed Grace Molloy to neatly tap the ball into the right hand side of the net.
A free kick on the half way line for Rose looked set to secure their second goal after a lovely shot from Laura Hopwood but Bonnyrigg's keeper, Courtney McDonald, was alert and comfortably saved the shot.
Linlithgow continued to dominate with Bonnyrigg unable to break out of their half but Linlithgow seemed unable to add to their early goal.
Linlithgow took their first corner of the match at the fifteen minute mark. Molloy took control of the ball from the corner and broke down the right but the ball was once again comfortably saved by McDonald despite pressure from Lucy Mcewan.
By the midpoint of the first half, Bonnyrigg came more into the game but a good play down the left between Linlithgow's Mcewan and Anna Johnston crossed the ball out for Linlithgow's second corner of the match. Tactics from the training ground caused controversy as the ball was put into play without Bonnyrigg realising, allowing Johnston to break free and secure Linlithgow's second goal with a neat tap past the keeper.
Bonnyrigg fought back with an excellent free kick from Nicole Selkirk but Linlithgow's keeper, Beth Hopwood, took the ball well.
In the last action of the first half, Linlithgow returned the ball to Bonnyrigg's half and, after short clearance from McDonald, the ball hit the bar and came down close to the line. Linlithgow claimed it was over but play continued and Molloy took control of the ball to finish the goal off.
