Glasgow go goal crazy
 Women's Football News 27 Apr 2009
Glasgow City cemented their place at the top of the Scottish Women's Premier League with a resounding 12-1 win over Raith Rovers in Glenrothes.
City's win now moves the defending Champions three points ahead of Celtic, who have a game in hand, although City have a huge advantage in goal difference.
With two changes to the City side which lined up against Celtic the week before, City took the game to the home side right from kick off, making the breakthrough as early as four minutes. Full back Emma Fernon played a through ball to Leanne Ross and the Scotland international made no mistake, coolly converting past the keeper. Three minutes later, City were two up, when midfielder Clare Gemmell diverted her header into the path of Katharina Lindner, who finished well. Less than a minute later and the away side had a three goal cushion. Fernon crossed from the left and Leanne Ross finished brilliantly with a spectacular header at the near post.
Raith then threatened for the first time in the match when a long ball caught the City defence out, but Laura Williamson in the City goals saved well at the edge of her box from Kristy Scott. However less than fifteen minutes into the game, City went four goals clear. A great through ball from Suzanne Lappin found the run of Lindner and the City striker converted well past the onrushing keeper.
Raith pulled a goal back when Lauren Wheatley finished comfortably after City had been slow to react to a throw in. However, Glasgow soon restored their five goal advantage when Lappin made it 6-1, with a trademark header from a City corner.
Eight minutes into the second half, central defender Rachel Corsie joined the list of goalscorers when heading in after a City corner had been cleared by Raith but hooked back into the danger area by Gemmell. Ten minutes later, Lindner had her hat-trick with one of the goals of the game, the German striking with a low drive from the edge of the box. Corsie then made it 9-1 by converting a great move involving Lindner and Leanne Campbell.
One minute later, Lappin was on the scoresheet again. Lindner charged down a clearance from the Rath keeper and set up Lappin who calmly stroked the ball into the back of the net for her third of the afternoon. On 72 minutes, City made it 11-1, and Leanne Ross completed her hat-trick converting in the box after good wing play from Lindner.
A miserable day for Raith was summed up after they were awarded a penalty but Kristy Scott's kick was saved by Williamson in the City goal. With nine minutes remaining, City completed the rout when Jane Ross made it 12-1 after a great run down the left wing.
After the match, Glasgow City manager Peter Caulfield said: "The girls performed very well today. It was a solid display and we had a real professional attitude about us. It is a great three points and obviously the number and quality of our goals was excellent."
