Hockey girls through to district cup semi-finals
The Shetland Ladies hockey team are through to the semi-finals of the Scottish District Cup.
The players recorded a 1-0 win over Edinburgh University on Sunday afternoon in the quarter-final tie, played at the Aberdeen Sports Village.
Shetland had most of the play but Edinburgh were always dangerous on the break.
The all-important goal was scored by forward Julie Kirkness in the last minute of the first half, converting a cross from Victoria Duthie.
Shetland had eight penalty corners in the second half, an indication of their territorial domination, but just couldn’t find a way through for a second.
Player of the match for the blues was Lynsey Morrison.
