Meteors women still in hockey title hunt

SUE Raynor was surprised when Meteors were winning 3-1 against Rockhampton Souths with four minutes remaining in the match.

With the losing team bowing out of the race for the Central Queensland Hockey League A1 women's title, Meteors were determined to hold on to their advantage.

Meteors had been the best team on the field but their dominance wasn't reflected in the 3-1 scoreline and their Rockhampton rivals were not ready to give up.

Lead by the determination and lightning speed of Andrea Farrow, Souths began to turn momentum their way.

Eventually, they scored and Meteors started to get a little nervous.

The goal was the second for Andrews to keep them in the game.

Souths pressed and pressed but Meteors continued to keep them out.

It wasn't until they won the ball and ran it down the field with less than a minute to go that they knew they had won.

Lindsay Mathison scored a goal in the final second for Meteors to triumph 4-2.

"We had a couple of vital players away but everyone blended together and played really well," Raynor said

"You always have a hard game against Souths and they came back but it was good to come away with the win."

South's Andrea Farrow believed her team wasted too many opportunities.

"We tried our best but it is disappointing to not come away with the win," she said.

"Meteors were awesome tonight and played really good hockey for longer. We probably haven't done enough work to play our best.

"Now we don't play again for the season which is disappointing."
