Hockey defence is strong

THE animated crowd at Warwick hockey saw a lot of teams left scoreless over the weekend.

After a break for school holidays, junior fixtures resumed last Saturday.

Saints ladies used their skills to attain a 10-0 victory against Corinthians. Saints player Toni Cox played brilliantly and was among the goal scorers. Most notable Corinthians player on the night was Danica Schnitzerling.

Wyverns defeated Scots 10–2 with Ayden Gillam attacking well in the Wyverns forwards.

Harlequins player Leah Gartrell scored all three goals in Harlequins 3-0 win against Scots. Mel McHutchison played a great game for Scots.

In the men’s competition, Wyverns men had an up-and-down weekend with a 6-0 loss to Saints on Friday night and a 6-1 win on Saturday against Scots.

Wyvern’s players Don Campbell, Phil Rolfe and Rob Eastwell played well in both games. Saints player Noel King had a great game, scoring two goals.

Dustin Easey used some of his skills to help Scots to a 5-0 men’s victory against Harlequins. Goalkeeper Tony Duncan showed some excellent defensive expertise for Harlequins as he prevented many attempts at goals.

The competition is down to the serious end with only six weeks remaining before the semis and the finals.
