Scotland hopes are Czech-mated

Scotland hopes are Czech-mated - 13 Oct 2009 - Women's Football NewsScotland suffered a 5-0 defeat at the hands of the Czech Republic in Marijampole, ending their hopes of reaching the next qualification round for the UEFA Under-17 Championships.
The cruel scoreline didn't tell the whole story in a generally even game, as Scotland went all out for the win they needed to clinch second place in Group Nine.
Despite some good attacking play in the first half, Scotland found themselves two down at the break, when an early Šmidrkalová goal was followed up by a seemingly offside strike from Bartonová nine minutes before half time.
Scotland's best spell of the match came towards the end of the first half as they battled to pull one back and Lana Clelland came agonisingly close as her shot hit the bar.
Scotland came out fighting in the second period, but were stung when Válková added a third on 50 minutes. Coach Ann-Helen Grahm switched to a 3-4-3 as Scotland surged forward, but the gaps at the back allowed Bartonová to hit two more goals, completing her hat-trick, and wrapping up the win for the Czechs.
Ann-Helen Grahm told www.scottishfa.co.uk after the game: "The final scoreline didn't reflect our performance and I'm really gutted for the players. We were unlucky with the first two goals, and we really had to go for it in the second half, so unfortunately we left ourselves a bit exposed.
"We made a tremendous start to the group, but in these last two games, even though we've played well overall, small things have made the difference, and with a bit more luck the results could have been different."
Austria finish the first qualifying round top of Group 9, with the Czech Republic beating Scotland to second place.
