Scotland girls beaten on penalties

Scotland girls beaten on penalties - 19 May 2009 - Women's Football NewsScotland Under-17 hit a stalemate against Denmark in their opening tie of the Nordic tournament.
But with the score at 0-0 come the final whistle, tournament rules sent the tie straight to penalties. Both sides converted all five of their initial spot kicks but the Danish keeper saved Scotland's sixth on sudden death, handing victory to the hosts.
The game's possession stats would show Denmark kept a larger share of the play but it was the Scots who made the more clear cut chances with 11 attempts on goal compared to the Danes' four.
Scotland's best chance came in the middle of the first half with a sweet strike from centre half Eilish McSorley. She stayed up the park after a setpiece and when the ball broke 20 yards out, she sent a thundering shot towards the keeper's top right, but the save was timed perfectly.
Scotland Under-17 manager Ann-Helen Grahm was happy with her sides overall performance. "We created the most chances, that's for sure, we looked the more dangerous team and that pleased me," she told www.scottishfa.co.uk.
"We also had a very good understanding of what we were doing defensively and kept our discipline and shape there very well. The back four all had a very good game including Chloe Craig who played her first international game at left back, and did very well.
"It's just a disappointing way to lose a game after playing so well but now we'll look forward to playing Norway. Pauline McDonald watched the first half of their game against Sweden today so we have a bit to go on to prepare for that.
"We actually defeated Norway in Germany last year at this age group, but we played exceptionally that day so we are in for a very difficult and physical game. But we have the youngest average team here so I am happy with how we coped today."
Scotland Under-17: Lauren Sangster (sub Hannah Reid 40mins), Aimee Godfrey, Claire Thoms (sub Susan Hamilton 52mins), Eilish McSorley, Chloe Craig, Sarah Robertson, Rebecca Storrie (sub Claire Emslie 52mins), Siobhan Hunter, Lana Clelland, Lucy Clark (sub Heather Richards 66mins), Emily Thompson.
