Scotland draw with Ireland
 Women's Football News 11 Mar 2010
 
Scotland Under-17 held hosts Northern Ireland to a draw on Tuesday night in the first game of an international challenge match double header.
 
Coach Ann-Helen Grahm handed debuts to goalkeeper Megan Cunningham and her Celtic team mates Kirstin McGuire and Indi Cowie, the latter making her mark by bagging Scotland's second goal.
 
Scotland produced some good attacking football in the first half, and took an early lead through Arsenal's Emily Thomson. The young striker showed both pace and composure as she got onto the end of a long pass to round the goalkeeper under pressure from a Northern Ireland defender.
 
Indi Cowie doubled Scotland's lead shortly after. The debutant picked up a neat ball from Rangers' Lana Cleland and beat the goalkeeper with a well placed shot.
 
Scotland were beginning to give away possession, and Northern Ireland pulled one back just three minutes later through Rachel Laverty, to go into the break 2-1 down.
 
The hosts kept up the momentum and Lauran Wade grabbed an equaliser seven minutes into the second half, after a good cross to the front post eluded the Scotland defence.
 
As the game drew to a close Cunningham kept Scotland level, pulling off a great save after going one-on-one with an advancing Irish forward.
 
Hibernian's Claire Emslie had a great chance to put Scotland into the lead again in the dying seconds, but put the ball wide.
 
Ann-Helen Grahm said after the game: "I was pleased with the performance, particularly in the first half. We showed some good movement and variation of play, but we did start to give away possession a bit cheaply, and let Northern Ireland back into the game. Overall it was a decent start to the double header, and it was good to see so many new faces settling into the side." (www.scottishfa.co.uk)
