Prestwick took an early lead in the opening seconds through Goal Attack (GA) Fiona Graham. The more experienced Cumnock side then took control to lead 3-1 but Prestwick battled back to 3-3 at half time.
Prestwick started the 2nd half as strongly as the first with an early goal to regain the lead.
Despite Cumnock having more chances Prestwick were the more accurate team and converted the vast majority of their limited chances to run out 6-5 winners.
Man of the match: Fiona Graham, scored 5 of Prestwick's 6 goals.
In the 2nd game Prestwick dominated the first half and gained yet another early lead through Mara Lyon who took up the prized position of GA for Prestwick. Cumnock did equalise and with this being their 2nd team you felt that they would tire out their opposition who had already played a game minutes before.
Prestwick weathered a Cumnock storm and the home team were clinical yet again on the break.
Mara Lyon added another 2 goals and Fiona Graham nicked another just before half time to give Prestwick an impressive 4-1 lead at the interval.
As expected in the 2nd half Prestwick did tire and struggled to break up the court and add to their haul but a fantastic defensive effort kept Cumnock out for the whole of the 2nd half to secure a 4-1 win to add to their previous victory.
Man of the match: Mara Lyon: Scored 3 of the 4 goals.
