Hockey – men’s
SATURDAY hosted the annual hockey grand final day. This year a new concept of an Over 25 versus an Under 25 exhibition match was trialed, and by all accounts it was a success.
A few past stars of the competition came out of semi-retirement, helping the Over 25’s to show the youngsters hockey is not all about speed.
The Overs had a 3-2 lead at half-time and looked to be tiring but it all seemed to be ploy to lure the youngsters into a false sense of security, as they ran away with the match in the second half scoring another five goals to end the game 8-2.
Five goals to Jason Payne led the way in what was a best on ground performance by the former multiple time highest goal scorer.
The grand final was looking to be a tough tussle between the two form teams of the competition, Mustangs and Centaurs Green, and it did not disappoint.
Mustangs jumped out of the blocks early with a goal in the first five minutes, only to have Centaurs answer back within minutes.
Centaurs then seemed to take the ascendancy and controlled the play for the rest of the half adding two more goals to take a 3-1 lead into the half.
The second half was a more even affair, both teams had times of dominance scoring a goal apiece but the deficit was too much for Mustangs to overcome with Centaurs eventually coming away with a 4-2 win on the back of the Michael Aramini medal winner Gareth Shepherdson’s three goals.
Kyle Marley took out a very close fairest and best for the season with a best on ground performance in the final game of the year to win by two votes over Jack Wilson.
Jack also won the fairest and best in the Challenge Cup held earlier in the year. Highest goalscorer was won by Gareth Old scoring a total of 19 goals during the season.
A reminder to everyone that we have our annual general meeting 7pm tonight at the hockey grounds.
Over’s 8 – J. Payne 6, C. Michalak, D. Burek defeated Under’s 2 – B. Sanford, G. Old.
Centaurs Green 4 – G. Shepherdson 3, L. Mathews defeated Mustangs 2 – C. Mumme, K. Crowe; Best Centaurs Green – G. Shepherdson, K. Davies, G. Tomasini; Best Mustangs – D. Cherry, P. Pelliciari, G. Gillespie.
