Hockey Team Thrashed 11-0 By Dominant Scotland

The Blades had hoped for a better performance to end the season on a high note, but at the end of the first quarter, they were down 6-0.

The Kenya hockey girls’ Commonwealth Games debut came to an end on Monday with yet another humiliation as they lost 11-0 to Scotland, who recorded their biggest victory of the competition.

After losing 16-0 to New Zealand in their opening game of the season, the Kenyan girls struggled once more against a more skilled and experienced Scotland team, giving up double-digit goals for the second time.

In addition to the two goals each from Charlotte Watson, Sarah Jamieson, and Fiona Burnet, Jenifer Eadie, Louise Campbell, Amy Kostello, Katie Robertson, and Bronwyn Shields each scored one.

The Blades had hoped for a better performance to end the season on a high note, but at the end of the first quarter, they were down 6-0.

Burnett scored first on a deflected shot inside the arc, and Watson added another goal on a penalty shot. Before Campbell and Costello scored two quick goals, the second from a penalty corner, the score was four thanks to Eadie’s shot and Jamieson’s effort.

During the second period, Costello increased the score to seven with a straightforward finish inside the box after Becky Ward had slapped the ball there.

Kenya finally recorded a shot that was on target, giving them a rare opportunity to score. Grace Bwire was up against the Scotland goalkeeper one on one after a counterattack, but both her attempt to clip the ball over the goalie and Gilly Okumu’s effort from the rebound were saved.
