Warriors claimed their fifth Upper Great Southern Hockey Association women’s A-grade premiership in six years when they finished comfortable winners over Wagin in Saturday’s grand final. Wagin were aiming for back-to-back premierships but could not stick with a classy Warriors outfit. Warriors finished 3-0 victors to cap a strong year, finishing on top of the ladder before losing to their grand final opponents in the first week of the finals. The game started safely for both teams with good ball movement. At the 10-minute mark a great lead-up created the first goal as Warriors’ Isabelle Kilpatrick put her side ahead. In the second quarter there were several missed chances on goal from both teams and despite some great teamwork the margin remained. Warriors stepped up a gear and moved the ball far better in the third term. A strong field goal from Nicki Evans extended Warriors’ lead to two goals before Cara Borthwick converted a penalty corner attempt to push Warriors further ahead going into the last quarter. Wagin tried to pull back the deficit but Warriors proved too strong to be crowned 2021 premiers. Wagin star Courtney Robinson was named most valuable player.
