Milford’s own Amber Barrett scored the decisive goal at Hampden Park to win 1-0 against Scotland after Caroline Weir missed a penalty for the home side.
Letterkenny’s Ciara Grant, who scored her first goal for Hearts in the Scottish Women’s Premier League in a 3-0 win against Aberdeen, was also in the squad, as was Roma McLaughlin who scored from the penalty spot last night as CCSU Blue Devils drew 1-1 to guarantee them a semi-final spot in the upcoming NEC Tournament.
