Meteors rise to occasion

METEORS defeated Sparks 1-0 in the A1 women’s hockey rounds on Saturday.

Meteors coach Roy Smith said Striker Susie Raynor had an outstanding game for Meteors, while Tahnee Jenkinson was also strong in midfield.

Meteors are currently sitting in third place with one week to go before semi-finals begin.

“We are in a safe third,” Smith said.

Next weekend one and two on the ladder will play it out for a spot in the grand final, with the losing team playing the third team for second and third positions.

“It was a good, tight match between Meteors and Sparks and we managed to convert on one of our opportunities,” Smith said.

“It was a fairly equal match which see-sawed from end to end.

“Meteors have a very young team and it has been a big year for us competitively.

“The young girls are really stepping up to the mark and it has been a rebuild year for us. We have been dominant in the past.”
