En­thu­si­asm on the pitch de­spite heat

Pilbara News - - Sport -

Re­cent hot weather did not stop a ded­i­cated group of hockey play­ers tak­ing to the pitch with re­newed en­thu­si­asm af­ter a break over the school hol­i­days.

An­gela Bal­lan­tyne made a re­turn to the pitch at left wing for the Kar­ratha Seag­ulls and was joined by new­comer Craig Boyce.

Play­ing in the cen­tre, Boyce was a wel­come ad­di­tion, work­ing with Nathan Fitzger­ald in de­fence to help keep the ball out of the cir­cle for the Seag­ulls.

How­ever, the Pil­bara Gi­raffes were the stronger team, de­spite Ja­cob In­namorati sit­ting it out on the side­lines be­cause of in­jury.

Steve Cook and Tim Bal­lan­tyne were quick and skill­ful get­ting the ball through to Me­gan Gil­lie, who scored mul­ti­ple times for the Gi­raffes for a 13-8 win.

The Nickol Bay Hockey As­so­ci­a­tion will play at the Bul­garra Ten­nis Courts at 7pm each Wed­nes­day un­til the sea­son ends on Novem­ber 30. New play­ers are wel­come.
