ALLOA WOMEN made it two wins on the bounce with yet another nine goal thriller last Sunday.

The Wasps visited West Park United off the back of an impressive 6-3 victory the previous week.

The goal was to simply take three points home, but Alloa did it in dramatic fashion, putting five goals past the hosts but also conceding four in a nervy match.

Manager Allan Milne was delighted with the result, praising the girls’ resilience and character to win the game.

He said: “They made it very hard for themselves this weekend but it was a game of quarters – every quarter, the game changed in terms of who took charge on the ball.

“They came through the challenge, the pleasing thing for me was that they showed resilience and character to come back every time something bad happened in the game.

“Whenever something happened that questioned their character, they fought back and managed to bring home the three points.

“It wasn’t the prettiest of games, but we got three points and we were up the road.”

Alloa made an instant impact on the game, with Alexis Curry scoring her maiden strike for the club in just three minutes.

Minutes later, a trialist for the club added a second for Alloa, with captain Abbie Trotter converting a penalty to make it three.

West Park grew into the game thereafter, scoring two quick goals to make it 3-2 at the break.

Kayley Robinson added a fourth for Alloa not long after the break to extend their lead, but West Park closed the gap again soon after.

Trotter scored her second of the afternoon to give Alloa their fifth, with West Park unable to fully close the gap and rescue a point.

Milne continued: “In two games, that’s 11 goals which is pleasing but similarly we’ve also lost seven goals in two games which if we can reduce that, it can become even better for us.

“After half an hour, we were 3-0 up and maybe we thought this would be a bit easy but then West Park started to play their style with long balls and we allowed them chances.

“We spoke to them at half time and they started to deal with those balls better. It’s pleasing to see that they can score goals and especially from all over the park.”

Next up for Alloa is a trip to Dunipace this weekend. Dunipace sit atop the Biffa West league and are the only other team unbeaten aside from Alloa.

This will promise a huge clash in the league, with Milne aiming to close the gap on the league leaders.

““It’s a chance for us to potentially close the gap with them,” Milne added. “They’re on great form at the moment as well.

“They’re scoring goals for fun and it’s going to take a lot of mentality, resilience, character and work rate from us.”

“They’re working hard in training and it’s pleasing that they’re two games in with a new style but they’re still scoring goals and winning.”
