Seag­ulls claim high ground

Pilbara News - - Sport - An­gela Bal­lan­tyne

The Nickol Bay Hockey As­so­ci­a­tion had a record turnout from its fe­male mem­bers last Wed­nes­day night.

A third of the club’s mem­bers are women and the match be­tween the Kar­ratha Seag­ulls and Pil­bara Gi­raffes saw women play­ers dom­i­nate the field in a hard-fought com­pe­ti­tion.

Lead­ing the Seag­ulls in red, Ta­nia Un­der­wood was fast in the goal cir­cle and gave the team an early lead with the first goal.

Annabelle Lit­tle evened things up for the Gi­raffes with a quick goal from a turn­around be­fore the de­fend­ers could get back in their po­si­tions.

The Pil­bara Gi­raffes ben­e­fited from the youth­ful en­thu­si­asm of no fewer than seven high school stu­dents.

This week Gi­raffes play­ers Kodie Bick­ler and So­phie Sparks worked hard in de­fence, with at­tack­ers Dy­lan Felix, Ryan West and Ja­cob In­namorati, and came up against fel­low stu­dent Tyler Atkin­son, who was a wall of strength in de­fence for the Seag­ulls.

Woman of the match, An­gela Bal­lan­tyne, scored the fi­nal goal just be­fore the siren to bring the score to 10-7 for the Seag­ulls.

The club is al­ways look­ing for new play­ers.
