Hockey boys don't slip up in the wet
OUR Tweed Border Hockey Association under-17 boys' competition was played on Friday night in very wet conditions.
In the first game Waratahs played Mudgeeraba in a really close encounter.
The play went from end to end with both teams playing some great hockey.
The final score was a 3-3 draw.
Zac Grace had yet another solid game in goals, with Kieran Walker also playing well for Waratahs and scoring along with Dean Strandfield and Andrew Butturini.
In the second game Casuarina took on Labrador and got up 2-1.
Casuarina is a very young side, but showed guts and determination and had a much older Labrador on the back foot.
Scott Harbason and Nathan Brider had brillant games, with Chris Faye and Nathan Brider grabbing Casuarina's goals.
