#SBSSWPL: Hibernian Ladies record victory over Hamilton…


Hibernian Ladies got back to winning ways on Sunday as they defeated Hamilton Academical 4-0 at Ainslie Park.

The side started brightly with Lucy Graham firing over the bar from the edge of the box with four minutes gone, but the scoring was opened just five minutes later.

Chelsea Cornet was unlucky to see her effort come back off the post, but Amy Gallacher was alert as the ball broke free in the box and she tucked it calmly into the back of the net to make it 1-0.

Chris Roberts’ team kept up the intense pressure on Hamilton’s goal and were unfortunate not to add further to the scoreline in the opening half.

Chances fell for the likes of Katey Turner, Abi Harrison, Graham and Cornet, but they were unable to add a second goal before the break.

It was a whirlwind start to the proceedings in the second half as Hibernian kept up their rampant attacks and left Hamilton struggling to break free from the pressure, with Turner and Siobhan Hunter both going close to adding the second goal.

That arrived with 50 minutes gone and it was Turner who got herself on the scoresheet as she found the back of the net from Harrison’s cross.

Only nine minutes had elapsed when it was 3-0. Emma Brownlie worked hard and managed to get to the byline and she picked out Shannon Leishman who made no mistake from close range.

Still in complete control of the game, the team continued to impose their style of play with Hamilton unable to fend them off and the fourth goal duly arrived with a little over ten minutes of the game remaining.

Brownlie again provided the assist, as her cross from the right flank was met by Turner, who knocked the ball home to wrap up the scoring.

Hibernian Ladies are next in action on Wednesday 4 October at Easter Road Stadium as they take on Celtic Ladies, with the game kicking off at 7:45pm. Entry is £5 for adults and £2 for concessions.

Hibernian Ladies: Reid, Brownlie, Murray, Hunter, Leishman, Notley, Graham (Small, 57), Cornet, Gallacher (Robertson, 82), Harrison (Michie, 67), Turner. Unused substitutes: Fife, Smith, McLauchlan, Tweedie
