Women so close to first points

Fremantle Gazette - - SPORT -

FRE­MAN­TLE Hockey Club’s men nabbed an im­por­tant 3-2 win against the Old Aquini­ans on the week­end.

Fre­man­tle’s sole goal in the first half came cour­tesy of Dale Mi­dolo and af­ter an arm-wres­tle both teams went into the main break 1-1.

The Mag­pies put the ac­cel­er­a­tor down in the sec­ond half, with two goals to Josh White and Kieren Ab­bott in two min­utes help­ing Fre­man­tle to the win.

Fre­man­tle’s women came ever so close to their first points of the sea­son against the Old Aquini­ans but fell just short to lose 3-2.

The Mag­pies were down 3-0 un­til the 57th minute mark of the game when Madi Rat­cliffe found the back of the net with a much-needed field goal.

Rat­cliffe scored again just two min­utes later af­ter a penalty cor­ner, but Fre­man­tle were un­able to find that goal to eke out the draw.

Fre­man­tle’s women next play Curtin Univer­sity from 2pm on July 30 at the Perth Hockey Sta­dium, while the men play right af­ter from 3.30pm.
