The second match of Scotland under-19s' trip to the Czech Republic was abandoned after Dundee Utd's Tammy Harkin was airlifted to hospital.
Tammy was badly concussed in a clash of heads during the game and was being assessed in hospital in the Czech Republic, where her parents were with her.
The first game of the double header saw Scotland put in an impressive team performance to claim a well earned 2-1 victory. Scotland outplayed their hosts in all departments, dominating the game from start to finish.
Kim Borthwick opened the scoring after 11 minutes when she got on to the end of an incisive pass from Hayley Lauder and coolly slotted the ball home after going one-on-one with the Czech goalkeeper. It was Lauder who doubled the lead with a spectacular 55th minute goal, Jenna Ross showed great skill to stride down the right flank and cross into the box, where Lauder finished with an acrobatic overhead kick. Andrea Bendova pulled one back for the Czech Republic on 75 minutes, but Scotland were never in danger of finishing the match with anything less than a win.
Scotland Coach Shelley Kerr said: "It was a tremendous all-round team performance and we totally dominated the game. We were very creative going forward, and remained solid defensively. I was particularly pleased with the number of chances created, and our deliveries from set pieces were excellent." (www.scottishfa.co.uk)
