Scotland win ten goal thriller against France in Cardiff
Scotland`s men secured second spot behind Ireland in the
Celtic Cup in Cardiff with a 6-4 victory over France in their final
The Scots opened in 20 minutes with Michael Christie drawing the
keeper and squaring the ball to Michael Bremner to score his first
Scotland goal by rolling the pass into the empty net. But
just before the interval Simon Martin equalised for France.
The Scots seemed to have switched off in the first ten minutes
of the second half and found themselves 3-1 down to goals from
Martin and Victor Condemine. However, this sparked off an
avalanche of goals from Russell Garcia`s charges; Christie
deflected in a shot from a penalty corner and he found the back of
the French net again following a good run down the right by Fergus
Dunn to make a 3-3 scoreline.
With nine minutes left the Scots went 4-3 up when Alan Forsyth
deflected over the keeper after a fierce cross by Gavin Byers.
Chris Grassick added a fifth after a switch back to him at a well
rehearsed penalty corner.
There was a final flurry in the last minute; the French made it
5-4 through Yannick Schambert at a counter-attack and with one
second remaining Fergus Dunn found the net after Grassick had
driven into the circle to set up the opportunity.
Ireland retained the Celtic Cup with a 100% record following a
4-0 win over Wales this afternoon.
