Eskvale in fightback to take draw

Grange Ladies III 2, Eskvale I 2

Last week, Eskvale Ladies 1st XI travelled to Grange.

It was a disappointing first half for Eskvale, as the home side displayed some good hockey with excellent passing resulting in the away side being down 2-0 at half time. Eskvale just couldn’t seem to convert the goals.

However, the second half proved different as Eskvale fought back and stepped up to the mark.

The first goal came from an-inch perfect pass from Shirley Gallacher 75 yards from goal to Lorraine Nicholson-Bennett, who controlled the ball well to slot it past the keeper.

Eskvale were now on fire and fought back to secure the draw with a goal from Shona Gladstone who touched the ball in at close range.

Player of the match was keeper Susan Cleaver.
