Wait pays off as Dunfermline Carnegie score debut top flight win

Dunfermline Carnegie finally got their Scottish Hockey Premier Division status under way after more than a year – and 112 in total – awaiting the chance.

Dunfermline and Carnegie were handed promotion to Scotland’s top tier for the first time last summer after a points-per-game decision.

And on their Premiership debut, 18 months later, Dunfermline Carnegie emerged 4-3 winners over Inverleith in a rollercoaster affair.

Iain Bruce gave the Fifers a single goal half-time lead. Thereafter the score line advanced to 3-3 with Carnegie’s Andrew Doyle scoring twice from the spot. The winner came from a PC conversion from Aidan McQuade.

Meanwhile, Andrew McConnell scored a hat-trick in Wildcats’ 6-1 hammering of Hillhead.

Champions Grange beat Uddingston 3-1 thanks to a double from teenager Fraser Heigh on his debut.

And Dundee Wanderers had to come back from two down to rescue a point against Gordonians.

In the women’s Premiership, Clydesdale Western beat Watsonians 1-0, the sole goal coming from Scotland international Jen Eadie at a penalty corner.
