FOR three days last weekend Perth Hockey Stadium was home to hundreds of country hockey players who had a wonderful, exhausting tournament with sunny weather and close results.
Act-Belong-Commit could well describe country women’s hockey as 51 hockey teams converged on Perth for fun and some serious hockey matches.
Five divisions means every country player had an opportunity to be in a team.
Add two masters divisions for those over 35 as proof that you can play hockey forever.
The competition could not have been closer with division two and division one both being decided on strokes after draws in their grand final matches.
Geraldton won division one against a valiant Goldfields.
They came from 2-0 down to draw the game and then won on strokes.
In division two Central Wheatbelt and Mortlock fought out another draw and Central Wheatbelt won on strokes.
The highest goal scorers for the competition was Sally Brown from Bunbury with 10 goals.
The Fallows Cup went to East Avon Association for their sportsman-like behaviour.
Louise Will from Central Midlands was selected in the masters All Stars.
