Gulls tri­umph in show­case

Pilbara News - - Sport - An­gela Bal­lan­tyne

The Nickol Bay Hockey As­so­ci­a­tion cel­e­brated win­ning the City of Kar­ratha sport­ing club of the year and coach of the year awards with a match on Wed­nes­day.

The Seag­ulls started off with a quick pass out to left-wing where An­gela Bal­lan­tyne, after nar­rowly miss­ing by inches the first at­tempt, fi­nally slammed it into the back of the goal to start the scor­ing.

The left wing was the place to be, with some fast ac­tion by Am­ber Vi­dotto.

She pro­vided good de­fence but also sprinted all the way for­ward to sup­port a strong at­tack­ing game.

She played a ma­jor part in the ac­tion that put the Seag­ulls 3-0 up very early in the match.

The Pil­bara Gi­raffes’ left wing, Ta­nia Un­der­wood, put the Gi­raffes on the score sheet and con­tin­ued to sneak down that line all match.

After half-time, Jack Cot­terell had a great run down the right wing and al­most scored again for the Gi­raffes be­fore Seag­ulls’ Gina Leckie at full-back stole the ball from him.

Annabelle Lit­tle picked up a long pass, ran it all the way down and dinked it across to Ja­cob In­namorati who smashed it home to bring the score to 5-2.

In the end, speed and ac­cu­rate pass­ing from the Seag­ulls saw them put away three more goals.

Nevin Shake­speare put in a last­ditch ef­fort for the Gi­raffes and scored the fi­nal goal of the night in a spec­tac­u­lar sprint down the pitch.

The fi­nal score was 8-5 for the Seag­ulls.
