Dunfermline U16s reach Scot Cup Semi Final
Dunfermline U16 mixed team (Girls 2001+ and Boys 2002+) had their first win of the year when they beat Warrender 15-6 in the Scottish Cup quarter final game at RCP on Wed 1 Feb. This win takes Dunfermline through to the semi-final where they will play the winners of the Menzieshill v Forth Valley game.
Dunfermline had a number of players for whom this was their first competition and this inexperience led to an early exclusion although the team coped well with the man down, combined with confident goalkeeping from Aithne they prevented the loss of an early goal. Good leadership and guidance in the water from the experienced players of Orla, Rory and Niamh steadied the team as well as stifling further attacks from key Warrender players. Dunfermline then started to take control and finally took the lead with a goal from Rory with 3m53s left on the clock. It took another minute before Rory got his 2nd followed by goals from Saul, Rory (his 3rd) and Orla which gave Dunfermline a 5-0 lead by the end of the period.
The 2nd period continued in the same way with a goal for Hannah then Rory and Niamh (2) to establish a 9-0 lead at half time. Most of the team had goal scoring opportunities which forced some good stops from the Warrender keeper and rattled the woodwork a number of times thus the score could have been higher.
