32 HOCKEY THE E $16,690 DRIVE FROM AWAY stylish Division 1 women: West 4 d Redbacks 0 WEST Division 1 women started the game against Redbacks with some strong attacking moves and working numerous penalty corners in the first half. Nicole Vause, Penny Bruorton and keeper, Casey Cameron, kept Redbacks in the game with some great defensive play and a couple of saves on the goal-line to keep West scoreless at the half time break. Redbacks had a few fast breaks through hard work by Laura Edmonds but West’s experienced defence of Leanne Ballintyne, Sharon Lewis, Stephanie Ward and Renae Nicholson were able to hold them up and deny their opposition too many opportunities to score. The youngest members of the team, Gemma Ballintyne, April Hockey and Cody Lewis, worked tirelessly in West’s midfield to set up further opportunities in the second half and were rewarded for their efforts in the first few minutes with Angela Broad scoring from a quick shot at goal, catching Cameron out of position and unable to make the save. West continued to control the game and with a diving lunge from Alicia Hole, saw the ball dribble over the line to give West a two goal lead early in the second half. Rachel Calliss and Ebony Ballintyne worked hard leading into space and providing West opportunities down the right side into their attack. West was able to extend its lead with a penalty corner off Briana Lewis’ stick from the top of the circle and then Gemma Ballintyne who positioned herself well and was able able to put away an easy goal through unselfish play from teammate, Hole. Division 2 men: Riddoch Strikers 9 d West 1 WEST took on Strikers and looked NEW SWIFT AUTO GL West was three nil up within five minutes, leaving Redbacks shell shocked. The Redbacks team started to fight back and with fullback Phoebe Aston working tirelessly in defence they were able to hold West out until the half time break. West’s Lizzie Doyle came out hard in the second half, eliminating four players before passing off to Charli Hockey, who put a well-timed ball through to the spot which Gemma Ballintyne converted. RUNNING GAME: West’s Lizzie Doyle runs the ball down the field during the weekends round of hockey. equal to the task after the first five minutes of play. However it didn’t take much longer for the Strikers machine to get into gear and string together some power hockey that at times would of left higher credentialed teams it its wake. While the play wasn’t always one way Strikers were able to capitalise once they got into the goal circle and score. West battled away but didn’t have the polish to finish off its play as well as its opponent could, however West did manage to hit the score board late in the first half. Half time gave the West players a chance to regroup and they came out and played much better hockey. They gave themselves more opportunities to score and the defence tightened up to restrict Strikers to two goals in the second half. However the damage had already been done and the talented Strikers players showed that they were a level above their opponents. Division 3 women: West 1 dw Riddoch Strikers 1 STRIKERS controlled much of the first half and West’s goalie Lillian Foote was kept busy, but was up to the task going in nil all at half time. Play opened up as the game progressed and Strikers goaled first with a well worked goal. Both teams had chances to score again and both goalies were involved until West scored an equaliser near the final whistle with a deft piece of work at the post by Kathleen Finney.

Bye: Cavaliers Black. VISIT US ONLINE borderwatch.com.au MAC SUZUKI 44 Mount Gambier Road, Millicent Phone 8733 1461 LMVD 45868 West too good for Redbacks O’Hehir and Aiden Dodds. At half time, the score was locked at nil all. There was a degree of unrest in the West box, and an expectation of much improvement required to win this game. The second half started in similar fashion to the first, with West attacking vigorously, narrowly missing their first goal. Sensing the play was too constricted, Julian Smith was swung out onto left wing. With this freedom, came a more structured attack and soon after Cameron struck West’s first of the game. But the score would stay at 1:0, with Stikers defence maintaining consistency for the entire game. U13 girls: Redbacks 1 d West Yellow WEST and Redbacks came together for a wet match on the BLSP grass eager to continue to strong form that has seen both teams produce some very positive results. West played dominantly around the field with Charli Hockey controlling the midfield while providing plenty of quality passes for her forwards to run on to. Charlotte Foote was proving very dangerous, continually employing her superior pace to evade the Redbacks defenders. Not to be outdone though, the resolute Redbacks defence led by LSEHA U13’s vice captain Claudia Edmonds stood up to repel every threat. The Redbacks goalkeeper was outstanding for the entire game with her clean sheet being the proof of her outstanding performance. Redbacks has shown in recent weeks that its forwards require few opportunities to put up a winning score and it was Bethany Brodie who latched on to a deep ball and put it in the back on a net to secure Redbacks a well deserved victory. 640415 EXTENDED ONE WEEK ONLY!
