Lucy strikes to earn Scotland draw
 Women's Football News 9 Apr 2010
Lucy strikes to earn Scotland draw - 9 Apr 2010 - Women's Football NewsIt was a much improved performance from Scotland Under-17 in the second game of the international challenge match double-header against France.
Where the home side struggled in the opening exchanges of Tuesday night's 1-0 defeat, they came flying out of the traps on Thursday afternoon, dominating the early play.
Scotland had the first chance of the game in the ninth minute when a long pass from Siobhan Hunter was met by Claire Emslie, but she couldn't find the net.
Scotland kept up the pressure, with forwards Indi Cowie and Lucy Clark making some good runs. France had a good spell midway through the half, hitting the post with one shot, but Scotland defended well.
Scotland were in the ascendency when France took the lead. Cowie had just sent a shot over the bar, when the visitors raced up the park and broke the deadlock on 36 minutes.
Scotland bounced straight back, finding the equaliser one minute later. Scotland played a short corner, and the cross into the box was met by Clark. Her header was cleared, but she picked up the rebound and volleyed into the net.
France began to enjoy more of the possession in the second half, and Scotland defended resolutely to keep the score level, with Megan Cunningham pulling off a string of good saves.
Coach Ann-Helen Grahm said: "We learned a few lessons from the first game and this was a much better overall performance, especially in the first half.
"France like to play a passing game, but we were compact and closed them down. We had much more of the possession, and created more options when we had the ball. It was disappointing to lose a goal, but I was very pleased with the response.
"We worked very hard for each other in the last 25 minutes when France were coming at us. We showed a lot of determination and fought for every ball. Some great defending, and goalkeeping, kept the score level."
