Scotland power through
 Women's Football News 20 Sep 2011
Shelley Kerr's Scotland Under-19 side followed up Saturday's emphatic 9-0 win over the Faroe Islands with a comfortable 4-1 victory over Belarus at the Pallokentta stadium in Helsinki to qualify from Group Seven with one game remaining. 
One major plus for the Scottish side was Lana Clelland who continued her rich vein of form in front of goal with a second consecutive hat-trick.
Shelley Kerr made two changes to the side that swept aside the Faroes on Saturday with Mairead Fulton and Stefanie Malcolm coming in for Jennifer Callaghan and Emma Brownlie.
Scotland started the sharper against a very physical Belarus side and took just fifteen minutes to open the scoring. Eilish McSorley timed her run perfectly to volley Lana Clelland's corner kick past Voskobovich in the Belarus goal.
Clelland was proving to be the creative spark in the Scotland team and her pass found Claire Emslie who in turn found Emily Thomson with a first time cross but the Belarus goalkeeper got down sharply to stop Scotland extending their lead.
On the half hour mark, Clelland had the chance to score Scotland's second after her run beat four defenders but the young Spartans midfielder was unlucky to see her shot, at the second attempt, drift wide of the goal.
Despite starting the second half stronger, Belarus soon found themselves two goals down. A quick counter attack from Scotland saw Lana Clelland released down the wing and her shot drifted high over the keeper and in off the far post. As was the case against the Faroe Islands, it was again Claire Emslie and Lana Clelland that looked most dangerous with both players causing havoc amongst the Belarus defenders.
With less than 30 minutes left of the match Belarus snatched a goal back when Krasnova latched onto a through ball and rolled her shot coolly past Lauren Sangster in the Scotland goal.
However, Scotland weren't finished and put the game beyond any doubt on 73 minutes. Voskobovich in the Belarus goal was sent packing after bringing down Emily Thomson and the first actions of her replacement, Olga Goryd was picking Clelland's penalty out of the net.
Clelland completed her hat-trick soon after on 79 minutes after play neat play from Maddy Fulton released found her unmarked and she smashed her shot past Goryd.
Scotland's final group seven qualifying match takes place on Thursday when they face Finland at the Kauriala stadium.
Scotland Under-19: Lauren Sangster, Chloe Craig, Stefanie Malcolm (sub Kirstin McGuire 83mins), Eilish McSorley, Rebecca Zoltie (sub Gillian Sloey 79mins), Lana Clelland, Mairead Fulton (sub Siobhan Hunter 86mins), Heather Richards, Emily Thomson, Claire Emslie, Kelly Clark. Subs not used: Hannah Reid, Emma Brownlie, Amy Bulloch, Jennifer Callaghan
