This seemed to galvanise Clydesdale Western who started to take a firmer grip of the game and goals from Ali Howie, Millie Brown and a second for Fiona Bruce put the girls 4-2 in front. Grove responded and Linda Clement knocked in a rebound from a short corner to set up a tense finish.

Grove pressed for the equaliser and with only 36 seconds left were awarded a penalty stroke for a push on an attacker. Lousie Duffy became the hero of the moment saving Louise Carrol’s flick.  Clydesdale Western successfully saw out the remaining seconds to regain the cup.
