Pilbara News - - Sport - Steve Cook

The Kar­ratha Creep­ers took on the Kar­ratha Gi­raffes in lo­cal hockey ac­tion last Wed­nes­day.

The Creep­ers started well with Ed Clarke open­ing the scor­ing with a blistering run down the right wing.

The two teams were evenly matched for the re­main­der of the first half, and the Creep­ers went into the break with a one­goal ad­van­tage.

In the sec­ond half, Me­gan Gilly started to come into the game with some prob­ing leads in at­tack.

She was well-sup­ported by Ami­rah King and Trudi Tun­stead who both came on at half­time with fresh legs.

The game was in the bal­ance un­til the fi­nal five min­utes.

It was then that the Creep­ers struck and man­aged to pile on three goals in quick suc­ces­sion to ice the game.

De­spite play­ing man­fully with a bro­ken toe, Gi­raffes cap­tain Steve Cook was un­able to stop the on­slaught and the fi­nal mar­gin was 8-4 in favour of the Kar­ratha Creep­ers.

The Nickol Bay Hockey As­so­ci­a­tion plays Wed­nes­day nights at the Bul­garra ten­nis courts and al­ways has space for new play­ers. For in­quiries, call Steve Cook on 9144 4423.
