Goals galore as Women’s Indoor hockey gets underway
5 December 2016
Bromac Kelburne have put in their bid for a promotion place with three consecutive victories in the opening day of the women`s second division indoor hockey programme.
The Paisley side opened with a convincing 4-0 win over Milne Craig Clydesdale Western`s second string, Emma Barlow was the catalyst with a hat-trick, Imogen Davies added the other goal.
Molly Godfrey gave Kelburne an early lead in the second encounter with Watsonians, but within a couple of minutes Robyn Coates had levelled. Midway through the half Stephanie McInally put the Buddies into a 2-1 lead, and that was the score at the interval.
Davies made it 3-1 midway through the second half, and although Emily Powell scored for the Edinburgh side with three minutes left the strike remained little more than a consolation as Kelburne finished 3-2 winners.
Kelburne completed their hat-trick of victories with a 6-2 win over Dundee Wanderers` reserve side.
Hillhead are level with Kelburne at the top of the division after recording three wins on the day. The Glasgow side opened with a narrow 2-1 win over Western`s reserve side. Amber McFarlane opened in only four minutes, Western levelled, but the same player scored the winner for Hillhead from a penalty corner.
Hillhead went on to beat Wanderers` second squad 6-1 and then Aberdeen 6-2 to end the day with the full nine points.
Wanderers` second string had the biggest win of the day with a 10-0 victory over Aberdeen. In the win Sam Sangster scored four while Ashleigh Bunce and Jenny Gerrard both came away with a brace.
Grove seconds started with a 2-1 win over Watsonians, Rachel Flack opened for the Taysiders in the first minute but Emily Powell replied just on the interval. The winning strike came midway through the second half from former Scotland captain Linda Clement. The Taysiders later drew 2-2 with Aberdeen.
