    Celts suffer narrow loss in league clash with Glasgow City

    GLASGOW CITY… 1
    (Shine 37)

    CELTIC… 0

    THERE was disappointment as Celtic’s winning run came to an end with a 1-0 defeat away to league leaders, Glasgow City. The only goal of the game was scored eight minutes before half-time when Clare Shine netted to give City all three points.

    It was the second meeting between sides this season, and the previous encounter had also resulted in a narrow defeat for the Hoops. But having pushed themselves into second place in the league, Eddie Wolecki Black’s side were aiming to maintain that on Sunday.

    The first chance of the game came Celtic’s way after eight minutes when Sarah Ewens was sent through on goal, but the chance was cleared for a corner. From the resulting set-piece, Chloe Craig headed wide.

    Shine had the ball in the net for the home side shortly afterwards, but it was disallowed for offside.

    Celtic continued to press forward in search of the opening goal, and captain Kelly Clark  came close with a header from a corner, while Ewens had a 20-yard shot saved.

    And on 37 minutes, it was Glasgow City who took the lead when Shine slotted a low shot into the back of the net following a defensive lapse.

    The second-half saw both sides battling to create openings, with few clear-cut chances .However, Kathleen McGovern came close to grabbing a well-deserved equaliser for the Hoops with just four minutes remaining when she fired a shot just narrowly wide following some great skill inside the box.

    And deep into added time, Josephine Giard, McGovern and Ewens combined well, but the chance was cleared by a relieved City defence.

    CELTIC: Cunningham, Black, Craig, O’Neill, Keenan, Donaldson (Hay), Clark, Ross, Smart (Giard), Ewens, McGovern.
    Subs: Logan, Crosbie, McBrearty, Hodges, McCulloch
