Southern Gazette (Victoria Park) - - Sport -

THE WA Thun­der­sticks and Di­a­monds en­sured they fin­ished their 2017 Aus­tralian Hockey League (AHL) cam­paigns on a pos­i­tive note after se­cur­ing wins in their fi­nal fix­tures on Satur­day.

The Thun­der­sticks de­feated Tas­ma­nia 2-1 be­fore the WA Di­a­monds thrashed South Aus­tralia 4-1.

The re­sults mean both sides se­cured fifth place fin­ishes in the tour­na­ment – the high­est spot they could have after fail­ing to reach the semi-fi­nals.

Vic­to­ria won both the men’s and women’s com­pe­ti­tions on Sun­day.
