Ballina are the Hunters
SISTERS Emily and Georgia Hunter provided all the goals as Ballina defeated Alstonville 3-0 in JH Williams Premier League women’s hockey at Hepburn Park, Goonellabah, on Saturday.
Emily scored two goals and Georgia the other.
The young Alstonville side’s best players were Tamara Leonard in goal, Cassie Baxter and Rebecca Templeman.
The team is sure to get stronger under the guidance of coach Jodie Hamilton, a former Australian Over-35 representative.
In the other game, Kings-cliff’s Catherine Conlan was on fire, scoring both goals early in the first half in their 2-0 defeat of Northern Star.
Conlan received good support from fellow forwards Gabrielle Nance and Lorelle Morrissey.
In an even second half, Star had several chances but could not convert any of them due, in part, to the excellent Kingscliff defence of Annabelle Nance and Nicole Clarke.
For Star, Rebecca Grill gave a confident display in goals with Melinda Slade, Amy Coshan and Katie Thomson also playing well.
