As a sponsor of Waratah Hockey Club, Top End Line Markers couldn’t be any more prouder of the achievements of this club at the Hockey NT Championships on Friday 15th September and Saturday 16th September 2017.
Friday night kicked off with our Under 17 Girls Team defeating East in their Grand Final followed
by the Under 17’s Boys Team defeating Tigers in their Grand Final.
Both games were intense with girls running out winners at the end of normal time, the boys however were drawn at the end of normal time, then played 14 minutes of extra time which still saw them all tied up and won it at the penalty shootout 5 to 4.
Saturday we were back at the Marrara fields again with the Under 14 Girls team up against Banks, another hard fought game which saw our girls run out winners.
Next our Ladies B Grade team took to the field and after a hot, fast and exciting game ran out winners against the East Darwin ladies.
Not to be out done our ladies C Grade game up against the very formidable Tigers ladies and this game nearly ended in a nil all draw, however our Ladies put one into the back of the net just before full time to clinch the game in the dying minutes.
And finally to our Ladies A grade side who took the field against a very capable East Darwin team, from the first hit off our Ladies took control of the game and pushed this right through to the end running out winners at the end of normal time.
As a long Hockey season now closes as a sponsor you cannot ask for a more pleasing result than winning all finals entered, 6 from 6 in total with all grades of the Ladies from Under 14’s to A grade and the Under 17’s Boys final.
Huge congratulations must go out to all involved at the Club from Board Members, fundraising members, Coaches, Managers, Physios, Parents and all Players.
This truly does indicate the strength of the club and we look forward to another positive and rewarding year in 2018.
Pat and Karen Coleman
