Peebles S3 53

Peebles S2 66

Mackie S2 0

AS the Scottish Schools’ Cup progresses through the knock-out stages, Peebles drew Stonehaven’s Mackie Academy at home in both the S3 and S2 age groups.

The S3 match was greatly anticipated, being a repeat of last year’s Scottish Schools’ final.

And the outcome was as before, with Peebles securing a comfortable win, demonstrating the strength of the local players, against a very strong opposition.

Peebles S2s had an easier match, with Mackie S2s struggling to get into the game at all. Not the best preparation for the much tougher matches to come, but ensuring the Peebles shooters got match practice.

With Peebles S1s, S2s and S3s now safely through to the quarter finals of the Scottish Schools Gold section, the senior school team travels away to Bearsden’s Boclair Academy next week for their third-round match, and a chance to make it a clean sweep for the Peebles teams.

Peebles S3s: Emma Raeburn (Capt), Lucy Sked (Vice Capt), Kerry Minto, Ellie O’Hara, Emma Saxon, Abbie Ewing, Charlotte Muller Stuart, Ruby Swain, Molly Falconer.

Peebles S2s: Abbie Sorrell (Capt), Emma Latto (Vice Capt), Hannah Little, Eleanor Smith, Melissa Watts, Molly Saxon, Emily Wilson, Lily Robertson, Imogen Smith, Ruby Finn.
