Big turnout for start of com­pe­ti­tion

Pilbara News - - Sport - Annabelle Lit­tle

There was a big turnout for the start of the se­nior hockey pro comp last week to see the four highly skilled teams in ac­tion.

With up to five subs on the side­lines, the mod­i­fied field was full to ca­pac­ity, and speed and skill were needed to get through the field.

Team Ore­some and the Pil­bara Pi­rates were the win­ners of this round, while the Pea­cocks and the Ded­heads will aim to fight back next week.

Honourable men­tions go to new­com­ers Dev­ina and Char­lie for their work on the win­ning teams.

There was also a strong turn-out for the sec­ond night of the Nickol Bay Hockey As­so­ci­a­tion’s in­ter­me­di­ate skills work­shop, with more than dou­ble the usual num­ber in at­ten­dance. Play­ers con­vinced their par­ents to hang around for an ex­tra half an hour to play a quick match.

It was great to see the tal­ent hap­pen­ing at the in­ter­me­di­ate level and the path­way for ju­niors through to the se­nior com­pe­ti­tions.

New play­ers are al­ways wel­come at the as­so­ci­a­tion.
