SWPL: Aberdeen frustrates Accies in a six-goal thriller

Aberdeen came from behind to hold Hamilton Accies to a 3-3 draw at New Douglas Park.

Josi Giard gave the home side the lead when she rounded Jennifer Currie in the Aberdeen goal and coolly played it home.

Robert Watson’s side doubled their lead after Giard won a penalty, an incident that saw Maddison Finnie shown a straight red card just 15 minutes into the match.

Freya MacDonald converted from the spot to give Accie two goals on half-time.

Bayley Hutchison pulled one back in the early stages of the second half before Melissa Reid responded to bag another for Accies.

A second for Hutchison and a long-range strike from Eilidh Shore split the points in Lanarkshire and kept the pressure on Accies at the bottom of the table.
