2017 Hockey 8’s

To all clubs – a message from Tony White, Director for Special Events

WE NEED YOUR HELP !!!

Planning for this year’s Hockey 8’s Tournament is well underway. If this great fundraiser for charity and junior development is to occur this year we do need people to assist with the various jobs to make it all happen and run smoothly.

We need help finding teams sponsors and selling the naming rights tickets.  We will also need help over the weekend with assistance in cooking , serving in the canteen, selling food and drink vouchers and just general help over the weekend.

 

If you want your juniors to continue to benefit from the development opportunities that arise from the monies raised, we ask for your continuing support in the running of the Hockey8s tournament.

 

This year we are supporting Give Me 5 For Kids

 

We will be having a meeting on Wednesday  4th  October 2017 at 6.30 in the club rooms. Please be there. If you can not attend but can do something to help out send a message to me at specialevents@haw.net.au

2017 Grand Finals: Masters Women Premiers

In the hardest fought and longest match of the finals, the Masters Women came away with the premiership cup. Here is the match report from Sharyn Tolley:

It was a historic Vets Grandfinal tonight – for the first time ever we played extra time and then went into wobble offs to decide the victors.
We fielded a full side of SOBER players but Falcons were out to win from the outset. At half time the outcome was looking dire with a 0-2 to Falcons score on the board. They scored one more after half time when we came out firing and leveled the score thanks to Ange McDonaldCatherine Fisher & Sherren Latta by full time.
After 20 minutes of extra time with no goal scored, we nominated five players for the wobble off. Strezlecki was ordered out of our goals and replaced by Sherren who also scored our 4th goal in the first contest. Belinda Burke scored our second and Sherren successfully defended all Falcon’s attempts.
BOGS: Sherren, Pettsy Kathryn Petts, Ange.
Well done girls on a most brilliant season.

CARLA WHO?😂

Oops forgot to mention big congrats to Ange on winning joint B&F for the season

2017 Grand Finals: Div 1 Men Premiers

After a long drought (2002 was the last win) the Division 1 Men took out the HAW Grand Final in warm conditions. An exciting, hard game against Wodonga, Norths won 3-1. Wodonga scored first, then the men put the pressure back on. At half time, the score was Wodonga 1 – Norths 0 and an inspiring speech by dual coaches Jeremy Payne and Jordan Thorneycroft lifted the blue and white team.

Norths started strongly with a tonne of pressure on Wodonga and a series of precise passes put Ian Beath into the scoring spot. He converted and Norths drew level. Shortly thereafter, Ian scored again with a bobbly bouncy ball off a Wodonga defender’s backside that popped in.

The final goal was a deflection by Larry Simpson off a short corner – a set move practiced often and executed when it really needed to be done.

Norths 3 – 1 victors at the close of play. Jeremy Payne announced as Best on Ground for the final.
