Ulster's Under 18 girls captured the bronze medals at the UK School Games in Loughborough yesterday after a decisive 2-0 win over Wales.

Second-half goals from Wallace High School's Jane Kilpatrick and Anna Nawn of Limavady Grammar were enough to seal the win as Stephen Watt's side emulated last year's finish.

"It was a well deserved victory and I'm delighted the players got a reward for their hard work," he said.

However there was disappointment for Ulster's boys who missed out on bronze following a 2-1 defeat by Scotland yesterday, Wallace's Andrew O'Hare scoring the consolation goal.

Ulster had failed narrowly to make the gold medal play-off after losing to England on penalties on Saturday.

Meanwhile in yesterday's friendlies, Queen's beat Scottish side ESM 2-1 in Edinburgh and Pegasus defeated Leinster's Under 18s 4-2 in Dublin.
