Ni­cholls cel­e­brates de­spite week­end loss

Cockburn Gazette - - SPORT -

FRE­MAN­TLE Hockey Club’s Paul Ni­cholls was still able to cel­e­brate de­spite his team’s loss to UWA over the week­end.

Ni­cholls walked out on to the field in the black-and-white for the 300th time, just a week af­ter fel­low club player Rhys Spencer notched up game 400 in premier 2 di­vi­sion.

It was not the fairy­tale game Ni­cholls was hop­ing for though, as UWA out-mus­cled the Mag­pies to take out the game 3-1. But it was a hap­pier week­end for Fre­man­tle’s top-level women, who re­main un­de­feated in 2016 af­ter a close 2-1 win over Old Guild­for­dian’s Mun­dar­ing.

They sit top of the lad­der as the only team to have won the first two games.

The men take on YMCC at Lem­nos Field on Sun­day, while the women play Rock­ing­ham at Perth Hockey Sta­dium on Satur­day.

Paul Ni­cholls played his 300th game for Freo.
