Wodonga recorded a comfortable 5-1 win to remain in contention for the women’s division one minor premiership.

However, it was Wombats that started the game far stronger than their ladder position indicated, with the teams playing very tough hockey in both defence and attack. 

For the first half, the ball stayed in the centre of the field with no team dominating as the scores stayed locked at 1-1.

Wodonga came out with increased intensity after the break, and, as the half progressed, began to dominate the scoreboard as they pushed forward to put away four goals. 

The standout player for the Bulldogs was Riley Sutherland , while Eryn Norie was Wombats’ best.

CR United and Magpies drew 2-2, while Falcons finished with a 2-1 victory over Norths.

In men’s action, Magpies and CR United played out an entertaining 3-3 draw.

Magpies took the lead midway through the first half to lead 1-0 at the break. 

The match lifted a gear in the second half with United scoring two goals in quick succession to lead 2-1 with 15 minutes to play. 

Not to be outdone, Magpies then swung into action with two goals off short corners to lead 3-2 with five minutes left on the clock. 

But just as the game looked to be over, United’s Andrew Monte scored a spectacular goal to force a 3-3 draw.

Wodonga and Wombats drew 2-2, while Falcons went down to Norths 4-3.
