Hockey cham­pi­ons

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

ROUND four of the Port Dou­glas Hockey Club Cham­pi­ons Tro­phy com­pe­ti­tion saw two games of fast-paced and skil­ful hockey.

The first con­test could not sep­a­rate Black Magic from White Light­ning and saw the game fin­ish in a 2-2 draw.

The for­ward com­bi­na­tion of Jack An­der­son and Guy Phong­sun­thorn made swift raids into at­tack for Magic, sup­ported from the mid­field by the clever play of Daisy Hawkes and drive of Suzy Best­wick.

The Black Magic back­line com­bi­na­tion of Graeme and Liz Stringer re­pelled fre­quent Light­ning strikes.

Bryce Cal­to­biano and Luca Hay­man-King each scored for White Light­ning.

A close match was ex­pected in the sec­ond game of the day be­tween the Red Devils and Blue Thun­der but the Thun­der stormed to a 2-0 lead at half­time. The side went on to win 3 - 1.

De­spite a bul­let-like goal to Michael Ar­mour and ex­plo­sive bursts of at­tack by Liam Ed­wards, the Devils could not claw their way back into the con­test.

The field for­ma­tion of the Blue Thun­der team with Vicki Sparkes in de­fence, Scott Sparkes, Char­lotte Richardson and Matt Stanway con­trol­ling the mid-field and Hali Tapim as for­ward striker all com­bined with pre­ci­sion to take the vic­tory.

On Sun­day, Blue Thun­der play Black Magic and Red Devils take on White Light­ning from 3.30 pm.

On Satur­day, lo­cal ju­nior play­ers will play in the Cairns Hockey As­so­ci­a­tion grand fi­nal.

Daisy Hawkes and Bella Kurth will rep­re­sent the Stingers U13A girls side against Souths at 10.30 am. Josh Noo­nan, Luke Stringer, Jack An­der­son and Isaac Heat­ley will play for the Souths U13 boys team against Saints at 8.00 am.
