City end season with victory

Glasgow City 2
Giammona 2’ Wardlaw 6’
Hearts 0

Two early goals secured victory for Glasgow City in the final SWPL game of the season.

Carlee Giammona’s strike after two minutes and Charlotte Wardlaw’s header earned City all three points.

For the first time in the league this season, Leanne Ross handed Jo Love a start in one of four changes from the side that beat Partick Thistle on Wednesday.

It was a frantic start of the final game of the season with the visitors going close in the opening minute as Lee Gibson denied Katie Lockwood before City took the lead.

Kinga Kozak drove at the Hearts defence and played a terrific through ball that saw Carlee Giammona attack it for City while Lizzie Waldie and Charlotte Parker-Smith for Hearts tried to clear it with the ball going past all three and ending up rolling into the back of the net.

One became two minutes later when Fulton’s cross found Charlotte Wardlaw and her looped header beat Parker-Smith in the Hearts goal.

The home side were threatening for more with Emily Whelan and Giammona both having efforts blocked before Amy Muir’s shot was cleared off the line after she had been found by Whelan’s cross.

Hearts started the second half brightly with Lockwood’s shot going just over the crossbar before a corner was cleared away by City. Lockwood went close again but Wardlaw denied her.

City threatened ourselves with Wardlaw forcing Parker-Smith into a fingertip save while Aoife Colvill’s shot was cleared off the line.

Giammona nearly got her second of the afternoon after a terrific run that saw her go past three Hearts defender’s but her shot went just wide.

Gibson’s last action of the season saw her make a great save from Megan Bell when the Hearts forward went through one-on-one.

City end the season in third place on 73rd points.
