Borderers almost master World Cup

DUNS hockey player Carolyn Allison helped her country to a fourth-place finish in the Masters World Cup played in Canterbury, Kent.

Carolyn was playing for for Scotland’s ladies 40s team. They started off with a 2-1 loss to eventual champions New Zealand.

Next up was Wales, and Scotland recorded a 4-1 win in 36 degree heat before the Scots thumped South Africa 4-0. A 2-1 loss to Australia, before a 4-2 defeat of Ireland, set up a finale against the Auld Enemy.

Unfortunately, five games in six days took its toll on the Scots, and the English ladies triumphed 4-0.
