Massive turnaround sees CR United race to Hockey-Albury Wodonga division one competition favouritism

CR United has opened up a five-point lead at the top of the division one men’s hockey table with three weeks to play before finals.

A win against Falcons on Sunday will go a long way to securing the minor premiership, which would be an incredible turnaround after starting the season 1-3.

Wodonga will face Norths, and, with both sides locked on 27 points, the winner will be in the box seat for a top-two finish.

Magpies are five points clear in fourth place from Falcons and must beat Wombats to move a step closer to playing finals.

In the women’s competition, Falcons will all but capture top spot with a win against CR United, Wodonga will start favourites against Norths to stay in second, while Wombats will look to cause an upset against the more-fancied Magpies.
