Robins in solid win

Narrogin Observer - - Observer Sport - HOCKEY

Two great games in the Up­per Great South­ern Hockey As­so­ci­a­tion were played in last week­end’s Sport­spower women’s A-grade.

The first game was between Wa­gin and Robins and a top-two po­si­tion on the lad­der was up for grabs.

In a close game where both teams had sev­eral scor­ing shots in the first half, the de­fence came out on top.

Late in the first half, Leah Sieber was able get the past Wa­gin’s goal­keeper to put the first goal on the board.

The sec­ond half saw Wa­gin hav­ing sev­eral early shots but great de­fence held them out, and Robins had sev­eral counter at­tacks but could not find the net.

Late in the sec­ond half, Robins’ Louise Pomykala scored a sec­ond and was closely fol­lowed by a third from Chloe Blight. Robins won the game 3-0. The sec­ond game had Mighty Ducks take on Wil­liams in very cool con­di­tions. The first half saw both teams move the ball around the field with­out get­ting a score on the board, but the sec­ond half saw sev­eral shots on goal.

Wil­liams scored first and Mighty Ducks were able to re­ply quickly to make the game even.

As the end of the game quickly ap­proached, Mighty Ducks were awarded a penalty cor­ner and as the siren sounded, they were able to score the win­ning goal and get their first win of the sea­son, 2-1.
