This weekend Edinburgh City hosted Glasgow City on their new pitches at Broughton High School. This was the top of the table clash, and after Edinburgh beat Glasgow in Glasgow in October, Glasgow were out to seek some revenge.
After a big build up the game was brought alive instantly with Edinburgh scoring a cracking first goal within 9 seconds of the first whistle. Alasdair “Yeti” Carmichael took a clean pass from a fast break and ripped a top corner goal. This was an emphatic start of a 5 goals to 1 first quarter to Edinburgh, who never looked back.
The second quarter was much of the same, with Edinburgh totally dominating face-off possession, and working hard in attack to throw 4 more goals, leaving Edinburgh up 9 – 2 at half time. The only negative thing for Edinburgh was an injury to Bill.
The second half was evenly matched, with both Glasgow City and Edinburgh City scoring 4 goals each, but the initial first half dominance from Edinburgh always remained a comfortable buffer for victory. Final score Edinburgh City 13 Glasgow City 6.
Overall, Edinburgh put together a very even strong team performance, with goals shared between Alasdair “Yeti” Carmichael, Lee McCrohan, Bret Retallick, Greg Scott, Scott Swan and Marc Waston. A great win for Edinburgh, who continue their winning steak in the 2011-12 season.
A big thank you to our Referees Rob and Lorna Powell and to everyone who came out to watch. We also wish Bill a speedy recovery.
