LOMOND School’s hockey teams played their first match since the October holidays on Saturday, with Jordanhill providing the opposition.

Lomond’s first team were disappointed to lose 2-0 at home to their Jordanhill counterparts after a good team performance and a second-to-none workrate, with Emma O’Neill, Nadiyah Hassan, Jessica Challender, Rachel McAuley, Hannah Leach and Emma Dunn all catching the eye with their individual displays.

Lomond’s second XI had had an even longer break from competition before their match with Jordanhill, but it didn’t show, with all players working hard and thoroughly deserving a share of the spoils after the match ended 0-0. Amelia Qureshi in defence was named the player of the match.

Lomond’s S3 team lost 2-1 away from home, Lotte Johnson finding the net, but the whole team performed well and were only minutes away from a draw when Jordanhill snatched a late winner. Emily Wilson was named player of the match.

The S2 team from Lomond were the biggest success story in terms of the day’s results, winning their game 6-0 with a fine attacking display which augurs well for the rest of the season. Lucy MacRae, who was named player of the match afterwards, and Amy Daveney were both on target, while Amber Wells scored a hat-trick.

Lomond’s S1 team were also successful, winning 5-0 away from home, with Zoe McEwan, who went on to win the player of the match accolade, scoring twice and Jenna Gallacher once in the first half, while Jenna added her second and Milly Harkness also scored in the second half.

Lomond’s two Transitus teams were also in action against Jordanhill – the A match saw Lomond lose an evenly-matched contest 2-1, and while the B team, mainly supporting the new Transitus 1 players, lost 6-0, credit must go to all the Lomond players who never gave up trying to win the ball against some very skilful players.
