LATROBE VALLEY MEN’S HOCKEY SENIOR GAME
In deplorable, mud conditions, last Sunday afternoon, Yallourn were hosts to St.Patrick’s College,Sale.
The game, lacking speed, resulted in a draw, 2-2, a justified result, considering the bad conditions.
Without any exaggeration, it could be said that the ground was at least two inches under water. As the players left the ground , it was noticed the the only “white man” was the Yallourn goalie.,P.Griffiths-
but this “ serious “ condition was soon very ably remedied with the aid of the large quantities of mud at hand.
Goals for Yallourn: J.McArthur 1, T.Polkinghorne 1
Best for Yallourn: In an even side, points were allotted as follows - K.Johnson - 3, J.McAthur – 2, H.Steinkemp – 1
JUNIOR GAME
Last Sunday morning, a Yallourn Under 16 team defeated the Morwell team, 1 – 0 . Both teams played exceptionally well and Yallourn’s best player was J.Kennedy, J.Lewis hit the juniors only goal.
Next week the Seniors play Morwell at Morwell, and this should be a very keen tussle.
