This week on the hockey pitch, the Kar­ratha Seag­ulls smashed the Pil­bara Gi­raffes in a one-sided af­fair.

Nathan Fitzger­ald, full-back for the Gi­raffes, had a big game and saved many goals dur­ing a match where the ball spent much of the time down their end of the pitch.

Tim Bal­lan­tyne at half-back joined him in de­fence, but it was dif­fi­cult to keep out the goals against the Seag­ulls’ con­stant on­slaught.

The cou­ple of goals the Gi­raffes did score were from quick passes out of de­fence to striker Trudi Tun­stead be­fore the Seag­ulls could run back to stop them.

The Seag­ulls played hard all match, with the Shake­speare fam­ily trio of Gar­ion, Mar­tyn and Nevin show­ing the op­po­si­tion what team­work should look like.

The fi­nal score was 13-3 for the Seag­ulls.

The Nickol Bay Hockey As­so­ci­a­tion plays so­cial hockey every Wed­nes­day in school term time at the Bul­garra Ten­nis Courts and wel­comes all play­ers.
