Glee continue on winning way

FAR North Coast A-grade women’s hockey premiership favourites Glee came up with another win on Saturday, this time 3-0 over Alstonville.

Alstonville started strongly, but Glee went on to dominate the first half.

Cassie Douglas made a number of penetrating attacking runs and was rewarded with Glee’s first goal in the 14th minute when she worked the ball into the circle and neatly stepped around Alstonville goalkeeper Tamara Leonard.

Shortly after, Nicole Danvers put away Glee’s second field goal.

Alstonville had good passages of build-up but rarely penetrated the circle.

Glee combined better in the second half, often penetrating the defence.

Tamara Leonard in goals made a number of spectacular saves and was ably supported her by sister Sophie Leonard.

Glee’s third goal came when Renae Dunstan’s shot was deflected into the top of the net off an Alstonville foot.

Alstonville never gave up and striker Jess Edwards threatened at times, but was contained by Margie Pembroke.

In the other game, Northern Star and Ballina drew nil-all.

With both teams missing key players, the game started slowly before the intensity picked up in the second half.

Ballina had their chances early with attacking pressure from Kerilee Brown and Georgia Hunter, but Melinda Slade and Amanda Hughes pulled off some good tackles for Star.

Halves Nikki Amber and Kate Marshall linked well with Amanda West in the inner channel for Star but solid defence of Allison Porter and Sarah Norton for Ballina kept the ball out of the net.
