Albany Extra - - Classifieds -

The Lower Great South­ern Hockey As­so­ci­a­tion came away from the re­cent South West Ju­nior Car­ni­val in Bun­bury with ter­rific re­sults, with two teams win­ning gold in their di­vi­sions and an­other tak­ing home sil­ver.

With 144 teams play­ing in the car­ni­val over the week­end, the LGSHA teams per­formed ex­tremely well.

The girls’ Year 5/6 team took home sil­ver medals af­ter a draw in the grand fi­nal meant they were run­ners-up on a count­back.

Un­de­feated through­out the car­ni­val, the boys’ Year 7/8 team were con­vinc­ing win­ners in the grand fi­nal against Vic Park, with the score 2-0 when the siren sounded.

LGSHA hockey de­vel­op­ment of­fi­cer Di­nah Gor­don said it was a great car­ni­val re­sult all-round.

“For three teams out of the seven en­tered by the LGSHA to be tak­ing home medals was out­stand­ing,” she said.

She said with the ju­nior club cham­pi­onships and the Up­per Great South­ern Car­ni­val com­ing up, the as­so­ci­a­tion was in line for more suc­cess on the back of the strong re­sult.
