Sparks' training yields dividends
SPARKS A1 Extended League coach Andrew McGuire said his hockey team had reaped the results of hard training by trouncing Frenchville Rovers 8-0.
“We worked really hard at goal-scoring in training this week and our efforts obviously paid off,” McGuire said. Veteran Paul Rose scored four of Sparks’ eight goals.
This win has secured fourth ladder spot and positions Sparks for third if they have another win this round, putting them in semi-final contention.
