Kingscliff hold Glee to draw
Glee salvaged a draw in the JH Williams Womens Premier Hockey League to maintain their place at sixth on the ladder, which is the highest ranked local team. The hard fought 2-all draw against competition high fliers Kingscliff started badly for the locals, with Kellie Moore scoring twice in the first half for the visitors.
Glee started the second half with much more determination, stringing together some good passes and forcing a penalty corner which Renee Dunstan converted.
Glee continued to make inroads with Sam Stanford being forced to make a vital save on the goal line for Kingscliff. Finally persistence paid off when Sharna Dadson scored the equaliser for Glee.
Glees Cassie Douglas, Kim Chappell, Renee Dunstan and Megan Kendall played strongly, particularly in the second term, and very nearly snatched the win.
Meanwhile Ballina played Casurina, the equal competition leader, in Lismore. Casurina play free flowing open hockey and on Saturday it proved deadly as the visitors came away 6-nil winners.
This Sunday Ballina play Griffith in what should be an even match up on Hepburn Park at 12.50pm, while Easts might struggle against Mudgeeraba when they play the next match there at 2.15pm.
Northern Star are on the road to play Casurina in Murwillumbah and Glee get the bye.
