Ireland 1-0 Scotland (W) Ireland secure last gasp win over Scotland

Ireland took on Scotland tonight winning 1-0 in the final seconds of play thanks to a drag flick from Chloe Brown in a game that was played with intensity from both sides. Ireland and Scotland are playing this three test series as both continue their preparations for Olympic qualification.

Ireland had the lion's share of chances throughout the game but Scotland were not without some excellent opportunities of their own, drawing some top drawer saves from Stella Davis in the green goals.
But as the game came into the final quarter Ireland ramped up the pace which translated into a number of corner chances, but they left it to the final twenty seconds to convert when Chloe Brown's drag flick met a slight deflection on the way into the Scottish goal to ensure the win.

Both sides have just 24 hours rest before they take to the field for test two tomorrow night at 7pm in Three Rock Rovers. The third and final test takes place in Alexandra College, Milltown on Wednesday afternoon 12.15pm
