Yallourn Men's Hockey - 1959

Hockey Club

Yallourn, last Sunday, were opposed to Sale and defeated the visitors, 2 – 1.
This was the last game of the home and away series, and it is probable that Yallourn have missed out on a final four position by a small percentage.
The game commenced hard and fast, and Yallourn were soon into attack with a quick goal. Both teams were combining well, and Sale levelled just before half time.
During the second term, play became very keen, as a win for either side could decide a place in the four.
Yallourn forwards had many tries, and eventually their efforts were rewarded.
Shortly before the finish of the match, one of the Sale forwards had an unfortunate accident. He was treated for a dislodged knee-cap by a doctor on the scene, and then taken to hospital.
At the final whistle , Yallourn had defeated Sale, 2 – 1
Best and fairest points for Yallourn were awarded to R.King - 3, T.Polkinghorne – 2, K.Johnson – 1.
Goals for Yallourn : R.Stewart 1, J.McArthur 1
Players are reminded to be at practice on Wednesday, as a big hockey carnival is to be held at Yallourn in the near future.
