On the half hour mark Carla Boyce unleased a strike from a full 25-yards out which sailed into the net. 

After the game manager Dean Gibson said: “We were excellent. I don’t think we were any better than last week and we played really good football.

“We created chance after chance, the only difference was we took them.

“If you take your chances you also take the belief out of the opposition so I thought we were excellent from the goalkeeper right through to the last sub we sent onto the pitch.

“Every single player played their part and it was a great way to end the year.

Goal scorer Leah Eddie added: “I think it was a great performance from the team and definitely what we needed after the four losses we’ve had.

“It going to give us confidence going into the second half of the season. We won 3-0 but could have made it a lot more with the chances we missed.”

In the other SWFL game in the capital yesterday Spartans beat Hearts 2-1.
