Farmington made the trip to Westhill., Aberdeen on Saturday on league duty and returned to Forfar with full points after another polished performance. The girls started off on the front foot on a sunny but windy day, scoring twice in the opening five minutes to settle any nerves.
Kerri Younger raced onto a Nikki Grant through ball to drive into the opposite corner from the right hand side of the box in the very first minute. Just three minutes later Jodi Allison dispossessed a Westdyke defender, raced in on goal and also produced a clinical finish in the bottom corner of the net. It was a pretty scrappy affair, mainly due to the wind which Forfar had the “advantage” of in the first half. From a great in-swinging Younger corner only the referee failed to spot that it was about 3feet over the line to prevent a three goal lead as he waved play on. It was the swirling wind which caused Forfar to concede after 20 minutes with the ball not being cleared properly before a Westdyke player scooped the ball over Rachelle Milton in goal. A long kick out by Milton found sub Louise Falconer racing clean through and she showed great composure as she confidently slotted home. Subs Danielle Grant and Amber Ogg had been introduced as Forfar kept up the pressure.
The second half had Forfar pretty dominant throughout with the defence of Shannon Thompson, Tami Guilcher, Rhianne Menmuir and Renni Keay dealing comfortably with Westdykes limited attacks. Sub Rebekah Brown , Sydney Cairns, Hannah Wilson, Nikki Grant and Erin Cattanach controlled the midfield and got stronger as the game wore on. A Cairns pass saw Falconer score her second before Cairns herself won a tackle, strode forward and struck a left footer into the back of the net for her first Farmington goal to make it five.
The scoring was completed when sub Emily Thain slotted home from close range from a corner to give Farmington a deserved 6-1 win. The girls are on their travels again this Saturday, away to Buchan in the first League Cup match and this will likely be their toughest test to date as they adapt quickly to life at 11-a-side.
