Scotland claim second victory
 Women's Football News 30 Oct 2009
 
Scotland claim second victory - 30 Oct 2009 - Women's Football NewsScotland made it two wins out of two in the World Cup qualifying campaign with a 3-1 victory over Georgia at Tynecastle Stadium.
 
Scotland created chance after chance in the first half, but couldn't find the net, and with Georgia failing to register a single shot on target, the first half finished goalless.
 
Scotland continued the onslaught on the Georgian goal after the break and were finally rewarded on 50 minutes when Grant got on the end of an inch-perfect pass from Pauline Hamill to fire the ball into the bottom corner.
 
Kim Little made it two just a minute later. She showed great control to chest down the ball in the box, turn, and coolly fire in a low shot.
 
Hamill missed a golden chance to further increase Scotland's lead as she shot wide of an open goal after being set up by Jennifer Beattie.
 
Minutes later, Georgia got themselves back into the game with a goal out of the blue. They took advantage of some slack defending by Scotland and Ana Pogosyan found herself free in the box round the oncoming Gemma Fay before tucking the ball home for a neat finish.
 
However Scotland remained in the ascendancy and sought further goals. Grant headed over from close range after a good run and cross from Leanne Ross and ther striker went even closer with a powerful strike which came back off the underside of the bar.
 
The third goal finally came with ten minutes remaining, Leanne Ross played the ball into the area from deep and Grant planted a downward header into the corner of the net.
 
Scotland National Coach, Anna Signeul, told www.scottishfa.co.uk: "We dominated the game, and the number of chances we created was fantastic. It was a great all round performance, but if there is any disappointment about tonight, it's that we needed so many chances to score. We have a lot of talented players though, and they know that they just need to be patient, play with confidence, and the goals will come.
 
"We have a young side and we're developing all the time. I'm confident that we will continue to get stronger as the campaign goes on. Denmark are shaping up to be the team to beat, but they dropped points tonight, and we'll be ready for them when we meet in our final two group games next year."
 
Scotland: Gemma Fay, Rhonda Jones (sub Diana Barry 84mins), Jennifer Beattie (sub Frankie Brown 90mins), Ifeoma Dieke, Leanne Ross, Rachel Corsie, Kirsty McBride, Kim Little, Megan Sneddon (sub Jane Ross 68mins), Suzanne Grant, Pauline Hamill. Subs not used: Joanna Hutcheson, Joelle Murray, Julie Ferguson, Amy McDonald.
