SA striker Kathleen Taylor was in irresistible form, scoring a brace, her first coming in the 15th minute and the 2nd came late in the second half in the 65 minute mark.
SA goalie Anelle van Deventer was instrumental in the win keeping her team in the game with a number of world class saves during periods of dominant Scotland play at stages in both halves.
SA’s win was made even more remarkable in that it was achieved with just 14 players while Scotland had the full complement of their 11 starting lineup players plus seven rolling subs.
Meanwhile, the courageous SA men’s hockey team went down 4-2 to a well honed, in form Ireland after trailing 2-1 at half time.
Ireland, under head coach Craig Fulton, who was the SA assistant coach in December last year, also beat England last Saturday.
