Scotland girls topple Denmark

Scotland girls topple Denmark - 9 Sep 2009 - Women's Football NewsTwo second half goals from Rebecca Dempster sealed an impressive 3-2 win for Scotland Under-19s over Denmark at Ainslie Park.
After going ahead within half an hour, Scotland survived a second half fightback from the visitors to wrap up an important win going into the UEFA Under-19 Championship qualifiers later this month.
Despite the wet conditions, Scotland started brightly in a lively first half. With the home side pressing from the first whistle, Sara Ewens caused the Danish defence problems as she chased down every ball. Goalkeeper Laura Draeby Carstens had to look sharp to save at her feet with 20 minutes gone. Denmark also had chances to take the lead, with Pernille Mosegaard Harder heading just wide.
Scotland looked comfortable in the middle of the park, with Rangers' Jenna Ross dictating much of the play and Gemma Collier drew another save from Carstens with a powerful downward header, before Scotland goalkeeper Gemma Clark was called into action to kick clear from the onrushing Sofie Bloch Jorgensen.
Scotland finally broke the deadlock on the half hour with Chloe Fitzpatrick getting on the end of a Lisa Evans cross to slot home from close range.
Scotland had a let-off just before half time when Linette Andreasen rounded Clark, but could only hit the upright with the open goal beckoning.
After the restart Dempster threatened with a long range shot, before Harder grabbed the equaliser. With the rain battering down, Denmark stepped up a gear, and within ten minutes Harder put the visitors into the lead, cutting through the Scotland defence to score a fine solo goal.
However Scotland quickly settled again and with captain Rachael Small starting a well worked move from defence, Dempster curled a shot round Carstens to make it 2-2.
Denmark almost hit back straight away, but substitute Louise Priergaard Lund's low shot flashed just wide. Instead it was Scotland who took the lead as Dempster raced towards the Denmark goal and, with Cartsens committed, she lifted the ball into the empty net.
Clark rounded off an excellent performance in the Scotland goal with two crowd pleasing saves late on. She showed quick reactions to punch clear an inswinging corner at her right post, before diving acrobatically to her left to block as the ball was pinged back in towards goal.
