IT WAS another rough outing for the Alloa Athletic Women's team as they fell to a 6-0 loss to league leaders Harmony Row.

Harmony have proven themselves to be virtually unstoppable, sitting atop the table on 27 points and a goal difference of 38.

Any meeting between Harmony and Alloa was always going to be tough for the Wasps, with manager Sean Black praising his opponents but hailing his side for fighting to the final whistle.

Black said: "It was always going to be a tough game, they're top of the League, they've got the top goalscorer in the League. They've got a striker who is absolutely incredible.

"Our girls held out really well and we were still in the game at half time. But, with their striker, any chance she gets, she is just so technically good that it doesn't matter what you do or how many people you put on her, she will find a way through.

"My players competed right up until the final whistle and gave it their all. They showed glimpses of how well they played against Clydebank but it was just really tough up against a team with the quality of striker that they have.

"The girls can't get too disheartened - we've got four games left to go. Our League position hasn't changed. Dunipace is this week and we'll be looking to get back to winning ways."

Alloa hadn't played in the League for two weeks, with the Easter break giving the Wasps some time off. Their last League outing came in a win over Clydebank Ladies on April 2.

Whilst this gave the girls more time to train, Black lamented the loss of momentum caused by the break.

"It's rubbish to win a game and then have a week off because we wanted to build momentum.

"We've got a run of games coming up now so hopefully we can pick up points in all of them and move ourselves up the table a bit.

"With four games left, we'll be looking to take maximum points in all of those games."
