Scotland Under-15s defeated Wales 3-0 on Tuesday night in a historic fixture at Toryglen.
The home side displayed some exciting, attacking football in the first ever Scotland international to be played indoors.
Captain Caroline Weir led by example, linking up with Lauren Pilkington to create the first chance of the match inside five minutes. The pace of Fiona Brown was causing problems for the Welsh defence and she whipped up the crowd with her confident long range effort just a few minutes later.
Wales also had chances, with goalkeeper Megan Cunningham pulling off a great stop to deny Hannah Keryakoplis. Brown had another opportunity to open the scoring as the first 40 minutes came to an end. After a searing run through the Welsh defence, her looping effort cracked off the bar.
But Scotland were rewarded for their efforts just on half time, when Weir found herself in space on the edge of the box and slammed a shot into the net.
Carolina Richardson came on for the injured Pilkington early in the second half, and made an immediate impact as she sliced open the visitors' defence to draw a save from Gemma Jackson.
Abbi Grant doubled Scotland's lead midway through the second half, when she got on the end of a Zoe Ness cross to volley in a shot from inside the box.
Ness was involved again as Scotland wrapped up the win, when she set up Richardson to stroke a low shot past Jackson in the Welsh goal.
