The girls won their section, defeating three teams, Fortrose Academy, Robert Gordon's and Glasgow Academy, without conceding a goal.

In the semi finals we beat Hutchesons' Grammar School 1-0, which meant that we were against Robert Gordon's in the final. After normal time the score was 2-2, taking the match to a penalty stroke competition, where we won 3-1.

'The team has done us proud over the last few weeks, winning the final of the East U18 knock out cup, and now the Scottish Schools Cup. It is a testament to the talent and dedication amongst our players and not least to our coaches' enthusiasm and expertise', said Gareth Edwards, Principal, after the win.
