Fourth District Cup in the bag for Orkney
Orkney’s hockey side sealed a fourth District Cup victory, with a dominant 4-0 victory over Edinburgh University 4s.
It was the islanders’ prowess from penalty corners, scoring a hat-trick from some enterprising set-piece play, which sealed back-to-back District Cup titles for Orkney.
Hannah Cromarty opened the scoring on 27 minutes, with the midfielder alert to latch onto a rebound from a well-worked penalty corner, to put Orkney 1-0 up at the break.
Charlotte Bruce got a second ten minutes into the second-half, flicking the ball into the goal from another penalty corner, while Bethin MacDonald’s accurate finish ended the match as a contest.
Lauren Gilmour completed the scoring late on to leave Orkney to celebrate another day to remember in Glasgow.
