DUNDEE Wanderers staved off the threat of relegation with a 5-3 victory over Croatian side HAHK Mladost in the final match at the women’s indoor European Club Champions Trophy at the Dundee International Sports Centre.

The Scottish team had earlier missed out on the chance of promotion by a single goal.

Once again the catalyst for their victory was the influential Vikki Bunce, who slotted home another couple of goals to lift her total to a round dozen for the tournament.

The Scotland international fired a low shot past a defender on the line at a penalty corner for the opener but Mladost put up more resistance than expected.

They overturned the Taysiders’ advantage with goals from Petra Dervaric and Marijana Franic, but Rachel Osborne’s shot into the roof of the net at another set-piece ensured that the score was level at 2-2 at the interval.

The home crowd was silenced when Dervaric put Mladost 3-2 ahead and a shock looked a possibility. However, Bunce entered the fray again to equalise with another set-piece strike.

The result was sealed when Charlotte Watson found the net with a reverse stick shot and fellow Wanderers teenager Emily Dark finished the scoring with a fierce shot past the goalkeeper.
