Milne Craig Western lost 4-2 on penalty flicks to Bonagrass Grove after an exciting final at Peffermill finished 2-2 in normal time. Both teams played some excellent hockey with the defensive units working hard throughout. Western took the lead through an excellent solo effort from Laura Bartlett midway through the first half. A few chances to extend the lead were not converted by Western and Grove came back strongly in the second half to take the lead 2-1. In the final play of the match Clare Scott forced a corner which was converted by Laura Bartlett to take the final to penalty flicks.
