Yallourn Men's Hockey - 1959

Hockey Club

Last Sunday, in muddy conditions, Yallourn were opposed to Sale, at Sale.
Inspired by last week’s win over St. Patrick’s College, Yallourn played exceptionally well, and drew 1-1,
with the strong Sale combination.
At the commencement of the game, Sale were hard into attack, and scored a quick goal. With the pressure on right through the first term, Yallourn held off many attacks, and due to the splendid back-work, particularly by the goalie, P.Griffiths, Sale could not force any more goals.
During the second half, the tables were turned completely, and Yallourn had many tries, but could not do better than one goal. A greatly improved side, Yallourn were extremely unlucky in not defeating the seasoned Sale team.
Yallourn’s goal was scored by D.Raggatt.
In a very even side, points were allotted for Yallourn’s best & fairest as follows:
T.Polkinghorne 3 , J.Lewis 2 , R.Stewart 1
Next Sunday, Yallourn will be opposed to the R.A.A.F. team at Yallourn.
The match will commence at 2:15 and any people interested are welcome to come down and see the game played
