Cockburn Gazette - - SPORT -

ICE hockey fans are in for a treat with the Cock­burn Ice Arena to host the Aus­tralian Women’s Tier 2 Show­case Se­ries start­ing on Satur­day.

The Bibra Lake venue will host six games across two days, with 46 com­peti­tors from South Aus­tralia, Vic­to­ria and Western Aus­tralia.

The open­ing cer­e­mony will be held at 2.50pm be­fore the first match be­tween WA and Vic­to­ria at 3pm.

Ice Hockey WA Women’s di­rec­tor Ali­cia Kelly said it would be a great spec­ta­cle.

“This will be WA’s op­por­tu­nity to demon­strate its strength for na­tional se­lec­tion in the Aus­tralian Women’s Ice Hockey League,” she said.

“The WA team has two Aus­tralian rep­re­sen­ta­tives on the team that re­cently com­peted in Korea at the World Cham­pi­onships and five of the team have rep­re­sented Aus­tralia in past U18 Aus­tralian teams.”
