Hockey - Dickson Minto Tournament

We were delighted to host the Dickson Minto 2nd XI Hockey Tournament on Saturday 11 March. This tournament has been running for 18 years and we are thankful to Dickson Minto W.S who kindly sponsored it for a 2nd year running. 12 teams from across Scotland played in a competitive tournament. The group sections were close and many goals were scored! Both St George’s 2nd XI and 3rd XI entered the competition.  The two teams faced each other and played out an entertaining 0-0 draw in the first game.  In the following pool games, the 2nd XI results were as follows; St George’s beat North Berwick 1-0, George Heriot’s 3rd XI 2-0, Dundee High 1-0 and lost 0-2 to Mary Erskine School. Goals were scored by Olivia S (2), Mirren and Maddy.  The 3rd XI played against the same opponents and drew each game 0-0.  These results meant St George’s 2nd XI won the pool, with the 3rd XI in third place.

The 3rd XI finished off their tournament with another scoreless draw versus Heriots 2nd XI, meaning they shared 5th place overall.  The 2nd XI progressed to the semi-final against Dollar Academy.  The girls played a great end-to-end game and won 1-0 thanks to Olivia S scoring from a penalty corner.

In the final, the 2nd XI faced George Watson’s College and defended hard to earn a 0-0 draw and force running penalties.  Olivia B and Maddy scored, while Ciara saved all 4 penalties to win the tournament for St George’s. Well done to all the girls for a fantastic win and to Ciara who won goalkeeper of the tournament!

A select Primary 7 hockey team played in the P7 George Watson’s College tournament on Saturday 11 March. St George’s started the tournament exceptionally well beating Edinburgh Academy 3-1; they then went on to score 4 goals against Dundee High. The girls went on to win their section by defeating High School of Glasgow 2-0! After a very successful group section, the girls qualified for the cup section of the main tournament, where they met Hutchesons’ Grammar in the semi-finals. As the game finished 0-0 one place in the final was decided by running penalties; unfortunately they lost out by one goal in the shoot-out.

Well played to everyone who took part.
