Mag­pies jump to fifth

Fremantle Gazette - - SPORT -

A HUGE 1-0 win over third-placed Vic Park has kept the Fre­man­tle Hockey Club’s Premier 1 men’s chances of play­ing fi­nals alive.

Vic Park had dropped just two games lead­ing up to Satur­day’s game and this one also looked like go­ing down to the wire un­til Fre­man­tle’s Matthew But­turini found the back of the net in the 67th minute.

With just six games to go, the win has helped Fre­man­tle jump up into fifth spot, now just three points be­hind Vic Park, who slipped to fourth.

Fre­man­tle face an­other im­por­tant game this Sun­day against Old Aquini­ans, who sit just one point be­low them in sixth.

Fre­man­tle’s Premier 1 women lost yet an­other game, this time go­ing down to Vic Park 3-1.

Cap­tain Jess Steele was the sole goal scorer for Fre­man­tle in the 13th minute, be­fore a trio of goals from Vic Park.

Both Fre­man­tle teams will next play Old Aquini­ans, the women from 2.30pm, July 23 at Aquinas Turf and the men’s right af­ter at 4pm.
