Ireland grab late win over Scotland
03 Nov 2014 15:03
Ireland enjoyed a last-gasp victory over Scotland, securing a 1-0 win in the final seconds of play thanks to a drag flick from Chloe Brown.
-
The victory was part of Ireland and Scotland’s three-test series as both sides continue their preparations for Olympic qualification.
-
Ireland had the lion’s share of chances throughout the game but Scotland were not without some excellent opportunities of their own, drawing some top-drawer saves from Stella Davis in the green goals.
-
But as the game came into the final quarter, Ireland ramped up the pace which translated into a number of corner chances, but they left it to the final twenty seconds to convert when Brown’s drag flick met a slight deflection on the way into the Scottish goal to ensure the win.
-
Both sides have just 24 hours rest before they take to the field for test two tomorrow night (7pm) in Three Rock Rovers.
-
The third and final test takes place in Alexandra College, Milltown on Wednesday afternoon (12.15pm).
