Six schools were represented in this year’s finals of the Scottish Under 18 Girls Indoor Cup at Bells on 28th January.
Once again we had an exciting finish to the tournament. The girls from George Watson’s College scored an equalising goal from a penalty corner on the last play of the final and then went on to take the trophy after a shoot-out. Strathallan took third place in the tournament ahead of Robert Gordon’s College, Hawick High School and the High School of Glasgow.

The final round of games in Scottish league Division 1 and the play off matches were played at Bells Sports Centre on 27th January.
The three games which mattered most all had exciting finishes. After fighting back to finish at 4-4, Edinburgh University lost to Hillhead in a shoot out and are relegated for next season. Hillhead need to win another game next week to preserve their Division 1 status.
The two semi-finals for next weeks Grand Final were both fought to the last second. A late winner saw Inverleith beat Dundee Wanderers 5-4 in the first game. Grove Menzieshill then lost out on their habitual place in the final when Kelburne produced a dominant second half performance and won by 6-5 .

The lens I need for indoor hockey is still away for repair. So instead on 6th January I braved the cold and crossed the snow covered Campsie Hills to Fintry for our local rugby derby, Strathendrick v Lenzie in West Division 2.
Both teams were obviously happy to be back in action after a long layoff and gave us an exciting game. The hosts had a strong first half and built a 20-3 lead. After the break there was a Lenzie comeback and they had reduced the lead to just one point before Strathendrick came through to win by 30-24.
