Perfect start: Chloe Brown was on target for Ulster

Ulster made a winning start to the under-21 international series when a late goal from Taite Doherty gave them a 3-2 victory over Scotland at Upper Malone.

Chloe Brown gave the hosts the perfect start when she netted from the first penalty corner of the game in the 17th minute.

The Scots equalised on their first attack of the game in the 26th minute, when Katie Robertson's deflection wrong footed Zoe Jackson in the Ulster goal.

The visitors took the lead three minutes later when Zoe Sinclair volleyed the ball home from close range to make it 2-1 at half time.

Robyn Chambers equaliser with a fine reverse stick shot five minutes after the restart, before Doherty grabbed the winner when she latched on to an inch perfect through ball from Zoe Wilson to score with a back hand shot.

Meanwhile Ireland went down 5-2 to Great Britain in the first of three challenge matches at Bisham Abbey.

Cliodhna Sargent gave Ireland an early lead from a penalty corner, but GB went 4-1 up before Ulster's Katie Mullan added a late consolation in the final quarter of the game.
