Sunday’s & Monday’s Premiership matches
Mens: Edinburgh University and Inverleith move up to joint second
Nothing seems to be going right for Dundee Wanderers, they missed a series of penalty corners and went down 3-0 to Edinburgh University. The result keeps Wanderers firmly rooted at the bottom of the Premiership table while the Edinburgh students moved up into second spot alongside Kelburne, but still two points adrift of leaders Western Wildcats.
Captain Robbie Croll led from the front, he scored at penalty corners and again from the spot, while the other goal came from Keir Robb in an open play move.
Inverleith also moved up to joint second spot with a 1-0 win over bottom side Hillhead, Jack Henderson was the only scorer.
Womens: Edinburgh University win at Windyedge
Edinburgh University had a comfortable 5-0 win over Hillhead at Upper Windyedge in Monday’s catch-up women`s Premiership encounter.
The result pushes the students up from ninth to fifth in the table, on the same points as Watsonians and Uddingston.
Edinburgh went into the lead in the first quarter through Jenny Walls. By the interval they had advanced their tally to three with strikes from Margery Justice and Kirsten Cannon.
The students turned the screw in the third quarter with goals from Georgia Jones and Amy Brodie but also had a series of penalty corners which could have brought further goals. Hillhead`s defence managed to stem the tide in the final quarter and Edinburgh`s tally finished at five. Hillhead had a late chance for a consolation at a breakaway near the end but it came to nothing.
Hillhead`s Jenny Sinclair summed up: “It was a good team performance and we were proud of the work everyone put in, but we were outplayed.”
