Fleet streets ahead of 'em.
The tenacious Scots fought back furiously at Inverness on Saturday to snatch a well- deserved point which could prove so important to their chances of progressing in the tournament. Just when the Czechs were looking comfortable following a 26th minute strike from Simone Miskova, Scotland equalised in 72 minutes.
Fleeting, daughter of the women's national coach Jim, outjumped a flat- footed Czech defence to head home a corner from Denise Broody.
There were other home heroines as well. Keeper Gemma Fay, 16, winning her first cap, did well to touch a free-kick on to the bar early on.
And fellow-debutante Agnes Allan cleared the rebound off the line.
The 1-1 draw leaves the Czechs on top of the group with 14 points from six games but Scotland have 11 points and a game in hand.
Just 24 hours later, EIGHT of the Scotland stars were in action for their club team Cumbernauld.
And two-goal Pauline Hamill yesterday inspired Cumbernauld to a dream domestic treble.
The League Cup and Scottish Cup holders hammered Cove Rangers 6-1 at Inverdee in Aberdeen to lift the Sports Connection Premier title.
Nicky Grant, Lynn Watson, Pamela McDonald and Jackie Kane got the other goals.
Player-manager Shelley Valle said: "It was a tremendous performance, especially when you consider that eight of our players were involved in Saturday's qualifier.
"It's been a long, hard season but we've done the treble and that makes it all worthwhile."
