Results 4/3/2013: Scotland’s women hockey team make good progress through the World League

Ah, Mondays. The calm after the storm. The lull before the next party begins. Just eight sports worth of results today and they’re largely Scots-centric, with mixed results. Easily the best news north of the border was the women’s hockey team thrashing their Trinidad & Tobago equivalents 7-0 to go top of the World League group after one match. Ranked 19th in the world, Scotland made light work of their 27th-ranked opponents, with two goals apiece from Nikki Kidd and Alison Bell putting them on the right track. They now face a tougher test against hosts Brazil.

Scotland’s “mixed day” comes from the fact that their cricket side managed to lose heavily, for the second day in a row, to Afghanistan’s Twenty20 side, ending the day behind by seven wickets. This mixed metaphor also applied directly to Scotland’s two junior curling teams, with the women walking all over Norway, but the men’s side were edged out by Russia.

Nick Dempsey and Bryony Shaw moved up to second in their respective competitions at the RS:X World Windsurfing Championships, Manchester City maintained a gap from third-placed Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League, David Ryding picked up an impressive third place in skiing’s European Cup and Yorkshire Jets surprised previously unbeaten Surrey Storm in the Netball Superleague.
