It's a perfect 10 for City as they crush Aberdeen at Petershill


Glasgow City enjoyed a perfect night at the Peasy as they dismantled an in-form Aberdeen by 10 goals to 1.

Goals from Tyler Dodds (14, 27, 53, 90), Kerry Beattie (34, 45+3, 79), Prisila Chinchilla (44, 84) and Jenna Clark (69) cancelled out Francesca Ogilvie’s early opener on four minutes to wrap up the win.

Head coach Eileen Gleeson drafted in Agata Filipa and Lauren Davidson as the only changes from the 2-1 weekend win over Hibernian.

City would start on the front foot, however, it would be the away team who would take a shock lead when Ogilvie was deemed to have beaten the offside trap to smash home beyond Lee Alexander. There were large protests, but the linesman and referee ruled the Aberdeen player onside.

A sensational goal from Dodds just 10 minutes later would restore parity though, the winger cutting in on her left foot to fire an unstoppable drive beyond Meach in the Dons goal.

And she would double City’s lead just before the half hour mark when she blasted home another superb goal to grab her - and her side’s - second of the night.

Northern Ireland international Beattie would add to it shortly after, finishing calmly after being put through superbly by Hayley Lauder.

Lauren Davidson would almost grab a fourth for City, but her close range shot cannoned back off the cross bar.

Chinchilla would add the fourth just before the break though, when she grabbed a long range screamer of her own, before Beattie would nod home her second goal from an outstanding Dodds cross.

There would be no let up from City in the second either, and Dodds grabbed her hat trick just after the break when she fired home another long range drive.

Clark then got in on the act when she headed home from a corner. Aberdeen tried in vein to clear off the line, but the linesman flagged to confirm the goal.

An eighth would come in bizarre fashion, when an effort on goal was saved by Meach, but the ‘keeper lost control of the ball and allowed Beattie to tap home her first City hat trick.

Costa Rican foward Chinchilla then stole the ball high in the away side half, before running clear on goal and placing home calmly for number nine.

Dodds would then complete a perfect evening at Petershill when she drove home the side’s tenth of the evening - and her fourth.

City: Alexander (Clachers, 70) Lauder (Kats, 59), Walsh, Fulton, Beattie, Clark, Davidson (Grant, 59), Agata Filipa (Noble, 70) Chinchilla, Foley, Dodds.

Aberdeen: Meach, Campbell, Broadwick, Gover, Hutchison, Collins, Ogilvie, Forrest, Paterson, Innes, Thomson.
