Division 4 girls big winners at Country Carnival

Laura GrubisaNarrogin Observer

The Upper Great Southern Hockey Association has come out winners at the CBH Women’s Country Championship as the Division 4 team took home top honours after three days of games.

The Association took three teams to Perth for the annual competition which was played at Perth Hockey Stadium and Fletcher Park.

The Division 4 team looked strong from the outset as they beat Ravensthorpe 2-3 and then CMHA 1-0 on the first day of competition.

They backed up their first day performances with a 3-0 victory over Mortlock on Saturday and headed to the grand final on Sunday morning against an in-form Busselton.

Busselton were the first to strike with a goal from Olivia Singleton in the first half, but UGSHA found the net in the second half with a goal from Renae Bransby which took the game into a shootout to determine the Division 4 champions.

Player-coach Casey Doak scored the first goal to put UGSHA up early, and goals from Amy Oats and Bransby handed the Narrogin team a 3-2 win.

Goalie Steph Cook was also outstanding in the shootout as she stopped three of Busselton’s goals to ensure the win.

The Division 1 team came away with three wins, one draw and one loss, but were relegated to a playoff against Esperance for fifth place on Sunday where they won with a 5-0 whitewash.

The Masters Division 1 team only came away with one win in the round robin, and then defeated Busselton in a playoff for third spot on the final day of competition.
