WOMEN FINISH THIRD with victory against the welsh

13 July 2014

A Scotland win over Wales of 3-2 for the women finishing third in the final day in the Investec London Cup.

The senior women started the game confident of a result after beating Wales earlier in the tournament 6-0. After ten minutes of pressing the Welsh Nikki Lloyd tapped in a Vikki Bunce ball to take the lead 1-0. Scotland had a goal disallowed after the ball was not pulled fully out of the circle but that spurred the Scots on and with five minutes to go before half time Bunce found herself unmarked and smashed the ball in the back on the net to finish 2-0 at half time.

Wales came out the second half with no fear but Scotland were too strong and after multiple shots in the circle Ali Bell gets on the score sheet with a diving reverse hit to take the lead to 3-0. From nowhere Phoebe Richards gets Wales back on the score sheet, after a great a diving hit to the far to corner of the goal nothing Gibson could do. This spurred Wales on and play became end to end and with second to go awarded a penalty corner only for Batton to put away to finish 3-2.

Birthday girl Amy Gibson was awarded very much deservedly goal keeper of the tournament.


Emily Maguire was disappointed with the result but was pleased with how the women have performed in previous matches.

‘It’s always great to finish with a win. Wales have been improving each game in the tournament so to be honest we were happy we won. We’re not delighted with the performance but we’re keeping a few things back for the Commonwealth Games which can be hard to adapt to. We’ll be coming out hard next time. We have a few things up our sleeves we didn’t want to show them yet given we play the same opponents very soon. We want to keep on building for the Commonwealth Games and make sure all our presses and corners are as good as they can be.’
