Penalty pain for Nicolson girls in showpiece final

THERE was penalty shoot-out agony for the Nicolson Institute’s Senior girls football team who went down 4-2 from 12-yards in the showpiece final.

The Stornoway schoolgirls produced a magnificent performance to take Edinburgh’s Boroughmuir HS all the way to the dreaded lottery of penalties.

During the game it was the Nicolson who created the best goalscoring opportunities but ultimately they couldn’t make the breakthrough.
