GALLERY: Kingscliff, Casuarina are Tweed's hockey champions
TWEED Border Hockey Association has held its senior grand finals, with Kingscliff and Casuarina winning the men's and women's trophies respectively.
With Tweed's very best going head-to-head, the matches were edge-of-your-seat kind of affairs, starting off with the Division 1 Women's final between Kingscliff and Casuarina .
Kingscliff took the lead after the first goal, but soon after Casuarina fought back with an equaliser. But Kingy snagged back the lead before half-time to have the upper-hand.
After the break, Casuarina came out hard, scoring two goals off penalty strokes to win the match 3-2.
Kingscliff's Division 1 Men, on a high after winning the Gold Coast competition, were in the zone right from the start of their final against Waratahs Bobcats, quickly taking the lead in the opening half.
But the Waratahs didn't give up, pushing back with a few goals early in the second half to make things interesting.
Kingscliff goalkeeper Kelvin Jordan played an exceptional game protecting his sides' goal, keeping the Waratahs' score to a minimum as Kingscliff finished the game strong, prevailing 5-3.
