Gi­raffes, Gulls clash ends in 9-9 dead­lock

Pilbara News - - Sport - An­gela Bal­lan­tyne

The fi­nal match be­fore term break and the prom­ise of a hot snag af­ter the game tempted lots of mem­bers out onto the hockey pitch last Wed­nes­day.

Among them was Steve Cook, who had re­turned from a hol­i­day in the sun re­laxed and ready to save the game.

Jack Cot­terell had a great game out on the wing for the Kar­ratha Seag­ulls, work­ing with Cook and club pres­i­dent Alex Wal­ter in the cen­tre to bring the ball through to their goals where striker Me­gan Gil­lie was ready and wait­ing.

The Pil­bara Gi­raffes were able to match the Seag­ulls’ en­ergy this week with the help of Neil Smith, whose re­turn to the team def­i­nitely helped to keep the Gi­raffes in the game.

To­gether with Nathan Fitzger­ald, he so­lid­i­fied de­fence for the Gi­raffes and let the fe­male strike force of Annabelle Lit­tle and So­phie Sparks score the goals at the other end of the pitch. The game ended in a 9-9 draw. For more in­for­ma­tion about hockey in Kar­ratha, visit the Nickol Bay Hockey As­so­ci­a­tion web­site on­nick­ol­bay­hockey.my­club.org.au/.

The club is likely to take a two- week break over the school hol­i­day pe­riod and re­sume for a short time af­ter that be­fore the scorch­ing Kar­ratha sum­mer heat sets in.
