Edinburgh University are through to the Scottish Cup Final after defeating the mighty Grove!

This is what *Cup Fever* is all about! A fantastic end to end game with the girls from Edinburgh quickly off the blocks and scoring from a Louise Fleming penalty corner. Both teams had chances after that with Edinburgh University keeper, Nicki Cochrane, in outstanding form and keeping Grove at bay.

And you can never discount Grove; and they got their equaliser just on half-time. Second half and Edinburgh Uni were back quickly again and scoring again from their penalty corner set-piece! But Grove kept to their task against an inspired University side and got their second equaliser of the day!

So, 2-2 and then it went to PF's. If luck's involved at all in a PF shootout then it was the Uni girls' day. They will meet MCC Western in the final after a great performance that saw them beat the best team in the land this season!

Man of the Match for Edinburgh Uni was close between a handful of players with a special mention to keeper Nicki Cochrane. But it was Louise Fleming's day for a solid, mature performance that never faltered once.

Man of the Match for Grove has to go to Kat Cameron who spent the whole afternoon picking off a serious of brilliant tackles and was great going forward. This would have been a great final, but that's on May 25th and Sam Judge's side will be there!
