Easts and Glee share points
ROUND 8 of J H Williams Premier Hockey League women's competition highlighted East Lismore's improvement as they held early season powerhouse Glee to a 2-all draw after the scores were locked 1-all at half-time.
Glee's terrific defence led by Margie Pembroke was a feature of the game.
Yesterday, Labrador lacked the same sparkle as the previous week without Nikki Hudson however they did enough to win 1-0.
With the bulk of the attack Labrador converted early through Claire Jackson (15th minute) for the only goal of the match.
And while they continued to create chances, Star's keeper Tamara Leonard's awesome game inspired their fantastic defensive effort.
Leanne Albertini worked non stop along with Abby Standing, Jess Vantaggiatto and Nikki Amber.
Up front Erin Gulliver, Tracey Making and Amanda West created many opportunities but Labrador contained their opposition.
At Murwillumbah Waratahs belted Griffith 8-0, Kingscliff overtook Redbacks 3-1 and the United Vipers remained unbeaten outplaying Capri 3-0.
Mudgeeraba had the bye.
