The Women's XV defeated Howe Harlequins in the Sarah Beaney Cup pool stages in Cupar on Sunday morning...
Alice King led the way with a hat-trick of tries as Watsonians defeated Howe Harlequins 76-7 in the Sarah Beaney Cup pool stages on International Women’s Day on Sunday.
The holders travelled up to Cupar from the capital early in the day for the 10am kick-off and they managed to hit their stride early on to negate the challenge from the plucky hosts.
King was on form crossing three times in Fife while the other try scorers for Freddie Main’s side were Lucy Winter (2), Bryony Nelson (2), Shannon Macey (2), Hannah Davisson, Alison Orr, captain Isla Craigie, Carly Lauder and Anna Forsyth.
Conversions were added by Claire Bain and Craigie.
The result means that Watsonians are top of Pool A with three wins from three to date.
Howe’s points in this match came through a try from Stephanie Craig converted by Phoebe Saunders and they are fifth in the pool. It was great to see Watsonians legend Kath Vass playing for Howe.
There are due to be three matches this coming Sunday to bring the pool stages to a close and after that the draw for the knock-out stages will be made.
