THE Fjordhus Reivers Hockey Club who play out of Tweedbank Sports Complex continues to go from strength to strength, punching well above its weight and competing successfully in all District and National competitions.

Not even the weather could dampen the spirits of the Fjordhus Reivers as they went into another weekend of matches.

Saturday saw the first of the matches.

In the Women's National League Division 2 the Ladies 1s played against Dundee University at home. They won the game 6-0, which also gave some younger players on the sidelines a brilliant game to watch, support and learn from.

The Ladies 2s also played at home in their Premier League East District game and despite losing two players to injury early on in the match, won 9-2 against Edinburgh University 6s.

In the same league as the Ladies 2s (Premier League East District), the unbeaten Ladies 3s travelled to Edinburgh to face a well experienced Grange side.

After going into half time 1-0 down, a few tactical changes were implemented and with the roars being heard from Murrayfield, they entered the second half composed and disciplined which saw them equalise and then secure a 2-1 win.

This keeps the Ladies 3s in top spot, with the Ladies 2s one spot behind in second place breathing down their neck!

The Ladies 4s took a 5-0 walkover win against WIT on Saturday and played Edinburgh University 9s on Sunday. Despite only having 10 players through illness and injury on the day, they gave it everything they had but unfortunately went down 3-1 .

The Ladies 5s continued their winning ways, playing at home against Dunfermline 3s and secured another victory with a competent 5-1 win.

Sunday saw another early start for the U16s as they travelled to Peffermill for the Scottish Hockey U16 Club Cup.
