Luthermuir WFC began the season’s second half when they entertained Forfar Farmington Ladies on Sunday in a Second Division North game.

Forfar pushed Luthermuir into their own half in the early stages and took the lead on four minutes when the midfielder turned Brough and fired an unstoppable shot from 30 yards into the top corner with Charles rooted to the spot.

Within a minute Luthermuir had a great chance when Lownie was clear down the middle after a pass from Brough. As she raced in the ‘keeper was drawn from her goal and Lownie headed just wide of the post.

On eight minutes in only Forfar’s second attack they had a second goal. A ball down the right was cut along the edge of the box and the attacker rifled it low past Charles.

This shook Luthermuir up and they started to gain control of the ball and force Forfar back.

On 16 minutes the homesters had a corner down the far right. Walker played a quick one-two with Lownie and whipped it over to the back post where Boyack was inches away from heading home.

Luthermuir got a goal back on 22 minutes when a throw-in down the left from Godsall was collected by Burn and she laid it back to Godsall to cross into the box, LOWNIE lifted it over the onrushing ‘keeper and slotted it home.

Luthermuir got their equaliser when a ball was mis-kicked by the Forfar defender and LOWNIE raced clear on goal, drawing the ‘keeper to fire the ball home.

Half-time: Luthermuir 2, Farmington 2.

Luthermuir wanted the next goal straight from the kick off they didn’t disappoint. From a set-piece Lownie passed to Burn who laid the ball back to Brough to fire over the defence and catch Forfar off guard. LOWNIE put the ball in the net for her hat-trick.

Forfar came more into the game but with no real cutting edge up front.

In 73 minutes Boyack, carrying an injury, came off for Murray. Again play became even but Luthermuir sealed the points on 84 minutes when a quick corner was fired low into the box where the ‘keeper spilled the ball and GODSALL was on hand to smash home.

Luthermuir travel to Turriff next weekend for another League encounter.
