Hockey - Eskvale’s hard fought win

On Saturday, before the start of the second half of the season, Eskvale were asked to take part in a friendly away game with Dunfermline 2s. The game was a hard fought match with Eskvale coming out on top with a 6-4 win. Dunfermline opened the scoring with two goals against the run of play. But Eskvale’s Shirley Gallagher managed to pull a goal back before half time.

The second half was a stronger performance by Eskvale who scored an array of goals despite being reduced to 10 players due to injury. Goals came courtesy of Gayle Buchan (2), Shona Gladstone and Gallagher, who managed to complete her second hat-trick in as many games.

A fantastic start to the second half of the season with some outstanding performances throughout the team. Player of the match was shared by Shona Gladstone and Gayle Buchan.
