A day before there was a defeat in athletics, but the hockey proved to be an impressive match, despite a a 0-0 scoreline.

The Shetland Inter-county website has just said: “It was a tough, physical match with the scores close the whole way through the match!

“Unfortunately Orkney were able to hold their lead throughout however Shetland never stopped and dug in until the very end!
