Third defeat for Scotland
 Women's Football News 3 Mar 2010
New Zealand hit three first half goals to go top of Cyprus Women's Cup group one and book their place in the final, leaving Scotland without a point in this year's tournament.
New Zealand set out their stall early, with Scotland goalkeeper Gemma Fay making a fine block from a free kick inside two minutes. However it wasn't long before New Zealand found the breakthrough, with Amber Hearn getting on the end of a cross from the left wing to fire home from close range in the fourth minute.
It wasn't all one way traffic but Scotland failed to take their chances with came their way. Pauline Hamill got on the end of a Rhonda Jones cross, but volleyed over the bar and the New Zealand goalkeeper was forced into action as young defenders Rachel Corsie and Jennifer Beattie bore down on her goal from a Scotland corner.
New Zealand essentially wrapped up the three points with two quick goals just after the half hour mark. Anna Green doubled their lead on 31 minutes, and Hearn added her second and New Zealand's third four minutes later.
Scotland began to enjoy more of the ball in the second half, creating chance after chance, but still couldn't find the net. Julie Fleeting, Beattie, Leanne Ross and 19-year-old Celtic midfielder Christie Murray - winning her first Scotland cap - all came close. With a bit more luck Beattie could have found the net, her bulleted header hitting off the 'keeper's chest.
After the game, Scotland coach, Anna Signeul, told www.scottishfa.co.uk: "New Zealand took their chances today and we didn't. We just weren't clinical enough in front of goal.
"It's obviously very disappointing to end the group stage without a win, but we have to look at this as a learning experience. We ended the game with a very young team today and they will take a lot from this, and the tournament as a whole.
"We've managed to get in a lot of match time before the start of the women's season in Scotland, which is very important ahead of our World Cup qualifiers against Georgia and Bulgaria in a few weeks."
Scotland: Gemma Fay, Rhonda Jones, Jennifer Beattie, Leanne Ross, Joanne Love, Kirsty McBride, Kim Little, Suzanne Grant, Pauline Hamill, Rachel Corsie, Emma Fernon. (www.scottishfa.co.uk)
