Drawin cup­tie

Blairgowrie Advertiser - - SPORTS -

Blair­gowrie ladies hockey team played Brechin in Ar­broath on Satur­day, Novem­ber 4.

The Blair side found it tough to pen­e­trate the Brechin de­fence, de­spite nu­mer­ous penalty cor­ners and a pro­longed pe­riod of pres­sure.

With no score at half-time the team came back fight­ing in the sec­ond half and a goal from Louise Nixon lifted spir­its.

But gaps be­gan to form and Blair­gowrie al­lowed Brechin to push into the cir­cle to score the fi­nal goal of the cup match.

The draw marks the first time this sea­son that the Blair­gowrie ladies have not won after five wins in a row.

Their next match is against Madras on Satur­day at Daw­son Park, Dundee. ● Blair­gowrie Hockey Club will start ‘back to hockey’ ses­sions at the Re­cre­ation Cen­tre in Blair­gowrie from 7pm to 8pm on Thurs­day, Novem­ber 9.
