Last-gasp winner steals the game from Swifts

By

A first home game and bright sunshine brought great support to Riverside Stadium

The sun brought out a good crowd in Perth for this SHAAP NPL U19s fixture, and the supporters who had come along were treated to a seven goal spectacular as the young Swifts outfit more than matched the older Hearts team.

The home side started brightly and clearly caught the capital-city side cold, when Alex Robson deftly placed a volley off the outside of her boot into the net on 10 minutes, following a cross from Leah Sidey.

With both Sidey and Robson being encouraged to work their way forwards up the wings, Swifts made good use of the pace outside to threaten several more times before Rachel Wolecki latched on to a superb through ball from Eilidh Davies to make it 2-0 just before half time.

Emerging from the changing rooms in the second half it was clear that Hearts had been told to up their game, and they started positively forcing the home side into a panicked early clearance. However, it would take 10 minutes for the away side to score its first of the afternoon. Then moments later a mix-up at the back let Hearts in for their second and the Swifts' first half advantage was erased.

Far from panicking however, Swifts continued to press and harry the Hearts defence, and took advantage of some loose play at the back with Alex Robson netting her second of the afternoon to make it 3-2.

Hearts resolve grew and while Swifts pushed hard to extend their lead, with Kaitlyn Doig shooting over the bar and Rachel Wolecki also testing the keeper, it was the Edinburgh side who drew level again with 10 minutes remaining.

A draw might have been a fair result for the neutrals looking on, but the Swifts' hearts were broken on 89 minutes when the visitors went ahead for the first time in the game. Nevertheless, the Perth girls will take great courage and confidence from an excellent display. Indeed, both sides were strong going forward and calm and collected at the back.
