CONFIDENT START FOR SCOTLAND U21S IN EUROPE

14 July 2014

Scotland’s U21 side started their European competitions strongly with a convincing win in the EuroHockey Junior Nations Championship II.

 

Scotland U21M 3-1 Belarus

Scotland U21 Men defeated Belarus 3-1 in Lousada with goals from Ross McIntyre, Aedan McCrossan and Murray Collins.

Summarising the performance, Scotland U21 Manager Fraser McCurdy said, “It was never really in doubt that we’d win this game, but whilst we’re happy with the win, the players know there is plenty more in the tank and they can play much better.

“We’ll analyse the performance tomorrow and look forward to the match against Italy, who play Belarus tomorrow. Our form is good and the guys know they can deliver a better performance against the Italians.”

The Scots took an early lead, Kelburne’s Ross McIntyre firing home with a field goal in the sixth minute.

Aedan McCrossan doubled the lead in the 18th minute to move his side into a more comfortable position midway through the first half.

The Scots wrapped up the match twelve minutes from full-time, Murray Collins scoring from a penalty corner to make it 3-0.

There was still time for more goal-mouth action, this time the Belarussians netting a consolation goal from Pavel Zukhavets in the 69th minute.

Italy are next up on Wednesday.
