Mixed fortunes for Scots clubs in Europe
It was a day of mixed fortunes for Scottish clubs in Europe, Clydesdale Western will play for promotion in the EuroHockey Challenge 1 tournament after another victory, but Edinburgh University will attempt to avoid bottom spot after losing in the Trophy event.
Clydesdale Western marched to the top of their pool at the women`s EuroHockey Club Challenge 1 in Lille after a 1-0 victory over Lithuanian side Gintra.
Clydesdale`s pole position was helped when rivals Rotweiss Wettingen (Switzerland) were held to a 1-1 draw by Slavia Prague (Czech Republic), leaving the Glasgow side with an eventual three-point advantage.
A 12th minute open play strike by Emma McGregor was sufficient to give her side the narrow winning margin.
The Titwood-based outfit will now face either Braxgata (Belgium) or hosts Lille (France) in the play-offs, a win here would secure promotion.
In Rochester Edinburgh University succumbed 4-0 to hosts Holcombe (England) to finish bottom of the pool at the EuroHockey Trophy tournament, and will now compete against Ukrainian side Sumchanka to avoid the basement spot.
Leah Wilkinson gave Holcombe a one goal lead at the interval. There was no way back for the Scottish students as Beth Bingham, Emma Trunks and Sofia Viarango-Cervino added three more in the second half.
The curtain falls on the Scottish Hockey domestic season at one of the highlights of Scotland’s sporting calendar – the Scottish Cup Finals!
