Scotland women showed their Welsh counterparts how to win a game as they won 4-2 in a friendly in Haverfordwest yesterday. Scotland's goals came from Hayley Lauder (two), Jane Ross and Jo Love, which sealed the win. Scotland did not get off to the best of starts as they lost the opening goal in the 16 minute. A free-kick for the home side was only partially cleared, which allowed Gwen Harries to open the scoring. However, Scotland did not let that set back put them off their stride and they began to take control of the game and were level just after the half-hour mark. The Welsh failed to deal with a cross from Leanne Ross, and the loose ball fell to Jane Ross, who scored with a great finish. It was scorer turned provider for Ross as she strode down the right wing to put in a low cross. Love dummied for Lauder to sweep home her first and give Scotland the half-time lead. The home side drew level on 76 minutes when Helen Lander took advantage of a bobble to beat Fay in the Scotland goal. This was not enough to see of Scotland as within three minutes Love restored the lead with a cool finish. It was Lauder who put the result beyond doubt when she added a fourth with six minutes to go, getting on the end of a Love pass to lob the onrushing Welsh goalkeeper.
