In-form Ewens hoping to end the first half of the season on a high


Having racked up five goals in four games, in-form Sarah Ewens is enjoying a prolific spell helping the club stay on the coat tails of the top two, but just as she’s finding her rhythm, she confesses it’s frustrating staring down the barrel of two months without a game.

On the verge of double figures, Ewens’ recent form has seen her take up residency as the club’s top scorer. With one last game before the summer break coming up, she’s hoping to continue making that impact and find a way to carry it through the interval.

“When you’re in good form and scoring you just want to keep that going and all you want is the next game,” she began.

“To think we only have one more game then a break until August it is frustrating but we’ve still a game to go, so hopefully I can help the team on Sunday, get the three points, then keep myself ticking over and hopefully the form is still there when we come back.

“It’s not really something I look at – I just keep focused on myself.

“I keep my own tally, it is obviously good to be top scorer but its good when you look across the team and see how many scorers that we actually have. We aren’t just relying on one player – Craigy is a defender and she’s scoring so that’s quite important,” the forward told.

Ewens opened her account with the first goal of the season just minutes into their opening fixture against Forfar Farmington and now ahead of the break finds herself just one short of double figures, something she is hoping to break sooner rather than later, saying, “I was thinking about that! I’ll try and get double figures before the break and I’d be happy with that, but I’ll not try and force it.”

While Ewens’ scoring run has bolstered her own game, Celtic have also clocked up 12 points in the last four games, maintaining a perfect record since a disappointing defeat to league leaders Glasgow City. But the response that game triggered from the Hoops shows the belief they hold now according to the winger.

“The game against City gave us belief,” she stated.

“We were absolutely devastated to come off that park without any points because we showed on the night we can compete and coming off of that it’s given us that extra bit of belief. We’re coming into games with confidence.”

Celtic make the short trip on Sunday to face Motherwell for their final bow before the lengthy pause, and having slipped to a 0-0 draw in the first meeting this season, Ewens is adamant they have a point to prove to themselves.

She said: “We’re still disappointed about the first result against them, we let ourselves down that night, but we’re playing well, scoring and defensively we’ve been solid so I’m confident going into this game and hopefully we can get the three points and make amends.”
