Three-in-a-Row for Girls' Hockey Team

6 December 2019 | Tagged: Senior School, Sports, Competitions

The HSOG Girls' 1st XI hockey team have won the BP Cup competition for the third year in a row following a 4-1 victory over The Glasgow Academy in Wednesday's final.

On a chilly night under the floodlights at the National Hockey Centre, Glasgow Green, the girls took a 2-0 half time-lead. With the vocal support of the High School community in the stands, the team were able to push on and complete the job in the second half - Goals came courtesy of a double from Yemisi Edgar (S6), and further strikes by Anna Pover (S6) and Anna Smith (S5).

The team reached this stage following a dramatic running penalties victory over Hutchesons' Grammar School in last month's semi final.

1st XI coach Alison Cox said "The girls have worked hard to gel as a team and have really improved throughout the term. I'm delighted that they won the BP Cup for the third successive year. It is a major accomplishment and really displays the strength in depth at all age levels of High School hockey."

The team were honoured to receive the trophy from Captain of the Scottish Women's Hockey team, Kaz Cuthbert.

The successful 1st XI team were:

Mhairi Crooks (Co-Captain)
