Eskvale hit nine

Eskvale 9, Edinburgh University V 1

Last Saturday’s match saw the Eskvale team starting the game fast and furious, before going on to net nine goals in total.

All of the Eskvale forwards managed to get their names on the score card, with goals coming from Louise Corr, Shona Gladstone, Shirley Gallacher, Lorraine Nicholson Bennett and Anne Turner.

Eskvale captain Lynn NcNeill and Briony Glasdstone at the back displayed some fine tackling, which stopped the Edinburgh forwards from getting near Eskvale’s goal.

The Edinburgh side were becoming increasingly frustrated, but their determination paid off when they managed to pull one back, slipping the ball past Eskvale’s Keeper Susan Cleaver.

Briony Gladstone was voted Eskvale’s Player of the Match.

Hockey training takes place from 6.30pm to 8.30pm every Tuesday night at Dalkeith Campus.
