Western Wildcats win return ticket to EHL

Western Wildcats will represent Scotland in the Euro Hockey League next season after beating Grange 1-0 in the men’s Grand Final at the Glasgow National Hockey Centre.

The game was settled in the second quarter as the prolific attacker Fraser Moran’s shot on the turn made it all the way to the backboard following excellent approach work from Callum Duke and Rob Harwood.

Gavin Sommerville made some super saves to keep it that way while his defence helped keep out a final minute corner to ensure they will return to the EHL next season.

In the women’s final, Watsonians won 4-0 against Clydesdale Western to take the primary European spot from Scotland.

Katie Stott broke the deadlock before Anni Arthur added another. In the closing stages, Millie Berndes-Cade and Sarah Jamieson made the game extra safe.
