THE women's A-grade Souths hockey team had an unfortunate result in a game on Saturday night.

Their first game for the season ended in a 6-nil loss against Meteors.

"We have a few new players this season. We still have lots to work on," coach and player Kim Lowry said.

She said the were impressed by their defence, particularly with goalkeeper Steph Rickson and defender Emma Price.

Following their loss, Kim said they would continue to work on a few things to improve their game.

"We're trying a few new things and we have some new players. We have lots to work on."

Women's A-grade Meteors coach Craig Matheson was proud of his team's achievements.

"It's good to get in and start the season so well, it's a really good confidence boost," he said.

"On a whole we played pretty well," he continued.

The team toughed out the hot weather conditions throughout the day, playing two games.

Before versing Souths they managed a five-one win against Sparks.

"It's tough enough playing one game a day, they were pretty well spent by the end of the two games," Matheson said.

The impressive start to the season has been a 'confidence boost' for the team who are looking forward to their next match.

Next weekend they will tap sticks with Sparks on Friday night.

"It's been a great start to the season."
