IT WAS a successful silver result for Cabarita Beach sisters Madison and Savannah Fitzpatrick in the under-18 National Hockey Championships.

The sisters were part of the Queensland under-18 women's team, who faced NSW in a 70 minute battle for supremacy at the championships, which were held from July 2 to 13 in Canberra.

Queensland asserted dominance in the first half, converting one of a string of penalties to take a 1-nil lead into the second half.

But NSW found their footing in the second half, going on the attack and scoring in the 56th minute.

Queensland attempted to get NSW working defensively, but NSW were simply too resilient and secured their 2-1 victory in the final five minutes with another field goal.

Meanwhile, Mooball's Zachary Grace and the Queensland under-18 men's team finished fourth on the overall ladder in the men's championships.
