We had our last game of this year home to Dundee University. The men were on first and it proved to be a wholly positive display. It certainly wasn’t Edinburgh’s finest performance but they secured the deal sure enough with a 10-0 win.
Scorers: Conor Sweeney (6), Liam Thorne (2), Sean Taylor (2)
The women were then on after the guys had cleared the field. They seemingly had just as easy a time as the guys did and went on to gain a solid victory of 6-0.
Scorers: Sarah Pocock (3), Hannah Craig (2), Ciara MacPherson (1)
We will see you all in the New Year and have a fantastic Christmas!
We’ll be having our last game of the year come Saturday home to Dundee. Times are TBC but it looks like it’ll be an earlier throw up at sometime like 12 for the lassies and maybe about 1.30 for the guys
We had a big game this Saturday against our rivals Strathclyde. The venue had been changed due to an unplayable pitch at Peffermill and so instead we were sampling Tayforth’s ground out in Musselburgh. The women were on first and got set in about it straight away. The play was fairly concentrated in the middle of the park with no side managing to get the upper hand with the occasional niggle at each goal mouth. Without much give on either side Strathclyde final mounted an attack which led to a relatively long range shot which just about managed to trickle past every player Edinburgh and Strathclyde alike before running into the Edinburgh goal. The burgh lassies fought back hard to try and gain an equaliser but one could not be found and the game finished 1-0 to Strathclyde.
The men were then on straight after women. The guys’ game was fairly concentrated in the centre of the park also and the scoring was opened quite quickly after David Mackenzie found the Strathclyde net. However Strathclyde were quickly back on the attack and not too long afterwards had gained an equaliser. The game stood for the remainder of the first half and most of the second half in the middle of the pitch with attacks from either side amounting to very little. In the last third of the second half Edinburgh dug deep and pushed forward forming a solid attack on the Strathclyde goal and after some very scrappy play the net was found by Brendan Duggan who punched the ball through the defence crowding around the goal mouth. Edinburgh held on and with some fine defending managed to hold a 2-1 victory.
Scorers: David Mackenzie, Brendan Duggan
