Boys hone their skills

Benalla Ensign - - Local Classies | Sport -

There was no lo­cal com­pe­ti­tion for hockey dur­ing the school hol­i­days, how­ever, Alex and Evan Dowe trav­elled to Mel­bourne to com­pete in the Ju­nior State Cham­pi­onships for the past week.

Alex Dowe played in the North East Knights Un­der-15 boys team.

He played cen­tre back, right back and left back positions.

After win­ning three out of four games in the pool rounds, the NE Knights U15 team played off against the top two teams from the other pool with a win and a draw.

The Knights U15 team then played for third place at 11.30 am at the SNHC on Fri­day. They fin­ished in third place over­all after a 3-2 win against the South­ern Metro Sharks.

A great week of hockey for the boys.

Evan Dowe played his fi­nal Ju­nior State Cham­pi­onships last week, with the Knights Un­der-17 boys team.

While their tour­na­ment has not been as suc­cess­ful with one win, one draw and four losses, he has been able to dis­play his ver­sa­til­ity as a player across all ar­eas of the field and was one of the few goal scor­ers.

The U17s played off for sev­enth po­si­tion against the South­ern Metro Sharks on Fri­day at 2 pm. They won the game 3-1. This weeks lo­cal games are: Un­der-10s play Mooroopna in Shep­par­ton at 9.30 am on Pitch 2.

Un­der-16s play Mooroopna in Shep­par­ton at 11 am on Pitch 1. B-Women have a bye. B-Men play Euroa in Shep­par­ton.

Cham­pi­onship ef­fort: Evan Dowe, play­ing in his fi­nals game for North East Knights, hits out in de­fence after a penalty call for the South­ern Metro Sharks.
