    Disappointment for Celtic Women's team against Glasgow City

    Glasgow City 4

    Celtic 0

    THE blustery conditions made it difficult for both teams, but an early setback made this game an uphill struggle for Celtic as a mis-timed tackle after only four minutes led to a penalty for Glasgow City and the opening goal of the game.

    City took the initiative from this and attacked almost constantly throughout the first half, putting pressure on the Hoops defence, and goalkeeper Megan Cunningham. Celtic's two young full-backs, Jamie-Lee Napier and Rachel Connor, were kept busy but both showed bravery and no little skill in keeping their opponents at bay.

    The home side had the ball in the net again after nine minutes but the offside flag ruled out a goal, but they extended their lead on 24 minutes when Murray slotted home beyond Cunningham.

    Courtney Whyte had a chance to reduce the deficit just minutes later, but her volley was well-saved by the City goalkeeper.

    Hopes of a comeback by the Hoops were dashed soon after the break when a series of quick passes in and around the penalty area allowed Grant to score from close-range. 

    The fourth goal of the game came on 65 minutes when Crichton struck a fierce drive into goal.

    Goalkeeper Megan Cunningham was excellent for the Hoops, and kept the score down, while Kirsty Howat put in a power of work until substituted towards the end of the game.

    CELTIC: Cunningham, Napier, Whyte, McCulloch, Connor, Clark, Richards (Knox), Montgomery, Fulton (Fitzsimmons), Ewens, Howat (Middleton).
