Scotland: Scottish Schools Cups Semi-Final Draws

Things are hotting up in the Scottish Schools Cups, and we now know our semi-finalists in most competitions. In spite of bad weather causing a lot of postponements, schools have done a great job to play their quarter finals.

The semi-final draws for all competitions can be found here: Scottish Schools Cup Semi-Final Draws.

The stakes are high, as teams compete to play in the cup finals at Glasgow National Hockey Centre:

  • Junior Schools Cup & Plate Finals – Friday 8 March

The few outstanding quarter finals will be played by mid-January, and the ‘play-by’ date for all semi-finals is 24 February.

Senior Boys Cup

Holders, Fettes College beat Stewart’s Melville 3-1 to earn a semi-final against Loretto, who knocked out George Heriots.

Senior Girls Challenge Cup

The semi-final line-up in the Senior Girls Challenge Cup won’t be known until the two postponed quarter-finals are played. North Berwick’s superb 2-1 win at St Aloysius gives them a home tie against St Columba’s or Boroughmuir HS.

Selkirk HS will play Peebles HS or Robert Gordon’s in the Borders.

Junior Girls Challenge Cup
