‘I com­mend the team for their com­mit­ment’

The Arran Banner - - Sport -

The univer­sity team came out ex­plo­sively in the sec­ond half, and con­tin­ued to break down Ar­ran’s at­tacks, turn­ing play over and counter-at­tack­ing. Ar­ran re­ally strug­gled in the sec­ond half of the game, hav­ing played the day be­fore and deal­ing with the con­tin­u­ous on­slaught from a very strong and skil­ful op­po­si­tion, the Ar­ran team were just com­pletely worn down. Glas­gow Univer­sity se­cured a fur­ther three goals be­fore the fi­nal whis­tle, leav­ing Ar­ran de­feated with a 4-0 score­line. Glas­gow Univer­sity voted El­lie Wood as dame of the game.

Ar­ran cap­tain Lor­raine Hewie said: ‘ I com­mend the team for all their hard work and com­mit­ment over this week­end. As a team we knew we were evenly matched with Hill­head and Glas­gow Univer­sity was al­ways go­ing to be re­ally tough op­po­si­tion, so the re­sults have not come as a sur­prise.

‘Play­ing these two teams in a dou­ble­header was ex­haust­ing. Well done to those who played, you never gave up and gave your all. Con­grat­u­la­tions to Ali McKie and El­lie Wood, who were awarded dame of the game over the week­end, both well de­served.

‘The team would like to thank Pauline Reid for um­pir­ing, the Or­mi­dale Ho­tel for host­ing match teas and thanks to all the sup­port­ers over both days,’ she added
