Goldenacre Sevens Competition winning team 2014Our girls won the Goldenacre Sevens Hockey Tournament on Saturday 15 March after a close-fought final against Mary Erskine's School. 

They won their section beating Kelso High School, North Berwick High, Edinburgh Academy, Trinity Academy and Glasgow Academy.  They then went on to beat George Heriot's 2–0 in the semi final, setting them up to face Mary Erskine's (MES) in the final. 

In the final neither team scored in normal time, and during extra time MES took the lead with only two minutes left on the clock. But a reverse strike into the top corner of the net from Katherine Holdgate (S4) meant the game was to be decided by a running penalty competition.  All the Watson's girls calmly slotted their penalties away and Mairi Shaw (S4), our stand-in goalkeeper for the game, made a fantastic save to win the tournament.
