Cram and Bunce gain promotion


 

Holly Cram and Vikki Bunce were the goal providers in Scotland`s 2-0 victory over Belgium in the crucial semi final of the European Nations Trophy in Lithuania, and so promotion back to Europe`s elite Championships has been achieved at the first time of asking.    A delighted coach Keith Joss remarked: "It`s mission accomplished, we came here for promotion and a good all round team effort has achieved just that, and now we can start to build for life in the top league in two years time."
 
Scotland opened the brighter side and could have gone ahead in the early exchanges but Linda Clement`s effort was deflected over the bar and an Ali Rowatt volley flashed just wide of the target.   Midway through the half a well worked penalty corner route saw the ball slipped left by Cheryl Valentine to Grove team-mate Vikki Bunce, she passed it on to Western`s Holly Cram who scored from close range for the opener.
 
The Scots kept a tight rein on proceedings and sealed the result 8 minutes into the second period at similarly executed penalty corner, again the Belgian defence was taken out when the ball was slipped left, this time Bunce herself drove the ball into the bottom left corner.   
 
On the game Joss said: "The Belgians set out their stall but we were comfortably the better side and thoroughly deserved our win, also it was pleasing how we took our chances from the set piece."      The Scots now play in Sunday`s final against either Russia or Belarus, the gold medal would be the icing on the cake for Joss`s charges.
