Lomond School's hockey teams put on four strong displays against Glasgow Academy recently, securing a draw and two wins.

Lomond’s first XI travelled to Windyedge to play against their Glasgow opponents, and were held to a 2-2 draw in a tight game.

Lomond dominated the first half with good inter-linking play between Rona Wilson and Mackenzie Serpell which led to Lomond’s first goal.

It was Abi Swigciski who ran onto the ball to open the scoring of the match.

Wallis Jamieson had a great individual run from the half way line to create a one-on-one with the goalkeeper, but the keeper managed to force the shot wide.

Another good pass from midfielder Georgina Jackson-Leach managed to find Wallis and she was able to slot the ball into the goal from a very tight angle.

Lomond edged a tight game 2-1 at half-time.

Glasgow Academy were beginning to build up their confidence and forcing Lomond’s defence to work harder throughout the game.

In the second half, Lomond created shots from their penalty corners, but did not manage to find the target and Glasgow managed to equalise with a well-taken open play goal.

The team worked hard and some promising play after a week’s break.

Overall player of the match was awarded to Charlotte Caskie for her tenacious defending and possession of the ball.

The second years were playing at home to the Academy and came away with a 4-0 win.

Lomond started the match well with Lucy McLean scoring her first goal of the season from a well-taken penalty corner sweep.

Rachel Macleod managed to score as well before half-time.

Lomond continued to dominate the match and started to build up their attacking play, with Lucy Wilson slotting the ball past the keeper on the left-hand post for goal number three before Sophie Reid completed the scoring.

It was a great result for the team and it was Jenny Scott who made some excellent runs up the right-hand side of the pitch to allow Lomond to create so many scoring opportunities.

The first years had a home match against the Glasgow Academy at Ardencaple, coming away 5-0 victors.

The team built up their attacking play through the work of the midfield and the strikers throughout the match.

These efforts were rewarded when Amy Daveney scored Lomond’s first goal of the match.

Katie Hogg in goal made some crucial saves in goals to keep Lomond in the match, though the Helensburgh team trailed 1-0 at half time.

In the second half, Lomond created a few chances and it was Zoe McEwan and Marianne Ridland who built up the attacking play.
