Hot and cold Hornets back on track
By BOB ANTHONY THE Gold Coast teams came, they saw and they conquered with both the 2007 JH Williams Premier Hockey League titles heading back over the border despite a valiant challenge from Tweed Border sides. As with last year the three association titles went to Gold Coast sides but unlike last year's all northern grand finals they had to overcome the Burringbar-based Waratah club to get their hands on the trophies. The men's final was played between traditional rivals Waratah Bobcats and the Palm Beach Allstars with the Northern side coming home with a 3-1 victory in a clash that lacked the fireworks of previous grand final and semi-final match-ups. With the Allstars heading north after a 20 year stint with Tweed-Border it was the one chance for the old foes to meet and while both teams had their chances it was Allstars that made the most of them. In the women's final it was Labrador who were surprise winners over the more-favoured Waratah Falcons winning their clash 2-1 after upsetting defending Tweed-Border premiers Casuarina 3-0 on Saturday afternoon's semi-final. Falcons defeated Mullumbimby 2-0 to make the final.
