Waratahs sweep field

AS the minor and major premiers in the Tweed Border Hockey first division, it came as little surprise when Waratahs swept the prize pool in the post-grand final presentations.

Triumphant over Kingscliff 5-0 in Saturday's main event, the defending premiers secured their fourth straight crown and signalled their intentions for five.

The player of the grand final was Waratahs skipper Tim Willis, who produced a brilliant captain's knock that included scoring the opening goal and unselfishly setting up the second.

But then such an inspirational performance is what Waratahs have come to expect from their leader who also picked up the top gong for player of the year.

Young Waratahs 'keeper Andrew Butturini, who was rewarded with a cameo on-field appearance in the one-sided grand final, was named elite player of the year.
