Teams from across the Great South­ern con­verged on Al­bany for the an­nual Great South­ern Hockey Car­ni­val last week­end.

Twenty-two teams in the men’s and women’s di­vi­sions vied for the re­spec­tive ti­tles.

Cen­tral Great South­ern fielded two teams in the women’s com­pe­ti­tion while teams from Tam­bellup, Wa­gin, Katan­ning and Greater Wheat­belt con­tested the men’s divi­sion across two pools.

The women’s fi­nal on Sun­day af­ter­noon was an all-Al­bany af­fair, with Spencer Peaks City de­feat­ing Al­bany Bul­lets 2-1.

In the men’s fi­nal, Perth-based North Coast Raiders proved too strong for Esper­ance, win­ning 2-0.

Katan­ning duo Zac Hat­field and Will Tan along with Tam­bellup’s Jared White and Ben Holmes were recog­nised for their con­sis­tent per­for­mances across the car­ni­val with se­lec­tion in the men’s all-star side.

The women’s all-star team also had plenty of lo­cal rep­re­sen­ta­tion, fea­tur­ing Cen­tral Great South­ern’s Kat Marsiniak and Laura Archer, while Ongerup’s Kelly Barr and Robins’ Janice Sieber were also re­warded.

The an­nual car­ni­val will be held in Esper­ance next year.
