Scot­tish round-up

The Hockey Paper - - RESULTS - MEN -

GRANGE held on to top spot in the Scot­tish Men’s Na­tional League Di­vi­sion One ta­ble in em­phatic style, as Cam­mie Fraser scored a hat-trick in their 10-0 an­ni­hi­la­tion of Wat­so­ni­ans.

Ir­ish­man Frank Ryan opened the flood­gates fol­low­ing a penalty cor­ner be­fore Dun­can Rid­dell scored Grange’s sec­ond.

A dou­ble by Joe Water­ston, plus goals by Cal­lum Milne and Fraser, gave the hosts a 6-0 lead at half­time and there was no let-up in the sec­ond half – Fraser go­ing on to com­plete his tre­ble with Milne and Luke Cran­ney com­plet­ing the rout.

Twelve-time cham­pi­ons Bro­mac Kel­burne are one point be­hind in sec­ond with two games left, as they over­came a spir­ited but strug­gling Cly­des­dale 4-2.

The vis­i­tors raced into a two-goal lead through Lee Mor­ton and Nick Fin­layson, be­fore Alis­tair Rich­mond pulled one back for Cly­des­dale.

Some good work by Mor­ton al­lowed Ben Peter­son to put Kel­burne 3-1 ahead, but Danny Cain’s goal from a penalty cor­ner kept nerves jan­gling un­til Finn Hal­l­i­day put the re­sult to bed.

Third-placed Grove Men­zieshill had a busy week­end as they were first de­feated 1-0 by Gor­do­nians on Satur­day in their bid to beat the drop – Ally Dougall on tar­get.

Grove re­grouped on Sun­day to win 4-3 at Uddingston – Paul Martin scor­ing twice for the vis­i­tors with Aidan McQuade and Gavin Tom­lin­son also net­ting.

Steven Percy’s hat-trick was in vain for Uddingston, who also went down 3-0 by the Western Wild­cats on Satur­day with Adam McKen­zie scor­ing a tre­ble of his own.

Hill­head ended a three­match los­ing run with a 3-2 vic­tory over Ed­in­burgh Univer­sity that lifted them out of the rel­e­ga­tion play-off zone with Wat­so­ni­ans re­plac­ing them on goal dif­fer­ence.
