The Edinburgh side claimed a sensational 5-1 victory over Gibraltar-based Eagles in their final Pool A game yesterday.
Yesterday, Scotland Under-21 defender Fraser Sands maintained his purple patch as Grange shot down Eagles. Sands, who claimed a penalty corner double in Saturday’s 3-3 draw with Czech Republic side HC 1972 Rakovnik, was one of five separate scorers in a game dominated by the Scots.
Rising star Hamish Imrie –who misses today’s game to sit a GCE exam – broke the deadlock when he deflected Cammy Fraser’s reverse stick shot after ten minutes to give Grange an early lift.
Then, Matt Connor made it 2-0 from a first-time shot into the top corner after good work from Aberdeen-born Adam Walker 13 minutes later and the Scots kept control until the break.
Eagles opened their account eight minutes after the re-start through Mark Wood after sloppy play in defence by the Scots, but Grange were not to be denied.
Four minutes later they led 3-1, the breakthrough coming from Fraser following a penalty corner, and Grange added two more goals in the dying minutes to underline their superiority.
Sands netted his third of the tournament from a penalty corner to make it 4-1 and Duncan Riddell slotted the fifth two minutes from time.
