Scots girls shine in the Algarve

Written by
Scotland's Under 16 women continued their fine form, with a superb showing in a development tournament based in Portugal's Algarve. 
The group of players, featured 12 of the squad who won last season's Bob Docherty Cup, faced tough opposition as they looked to take their success from the home nations tournament to the continent.
First up for the young Scots was a tie against Norway. A Chelsea Cornet goal gave Scotland the lead, however they were pegged back in the closing stages by a Norweigan equaliser, which sent the match to spot kicks. Donna Paterson, Erin Cuthbert and Amy Gallagher were on target, as Scotland held their nerve to edge the shoot out 3-2.
Scotland's second match was against The Netherlands and a slow start saw the Scots fall behind in the opening minutes. However, a Cuthbert free kick was headed home by Courtney Whyte, levelling the scores at the break. Cuthbert then turned goalscorer match-winner as she was brought down inside the penalty area with 10 minutes remaining. The Rangers star dusted herself down before putting away the penalty to put Scotland in pole position ahead of the final round of matches.
The final game matched Scotland against Austria - who were also undefeated and in contention for top spot. After a stalemate first half, the Austrians took the lead shortly after the interval. Scotland bounced back with captain Alyshia Walker the hero, striking twice in quick succession to turn the game on its head. Scotland's fine campaign was rounded off with a Cassie Cowper headed goal from a Chantelle Brown corner.
Scotland's successful squad was: Rebecca Flaherty, Rachel Ross, Cailin Michie, Courtney Whyte, Cassie Cowper, Amy Lynch, Claire Mullen, Erin Cuthbert, Alyshia Walker, Amy Gallagher, Chantelle Brown, Kirsty Jefferies, Donna Paterson, Keira Johnstone, Chelsea Cornet, Kelsey Boyle, Carla Boyce, Taylor Davis, Chloe Gilfoyle, Colette Cavanagh.
