Juniors, seniors to take centre stage at Rigby Park

HOCKEY: There will be more than 12 hours of hockey action tomorrow as the Gladstone Hockey Association hosts 12 grand finals at Rigby Park.

Junior games begin at 8.30am and run until 12.30pm.

Senior action starts at 1pm with the A3 Women's clash between Souths and Yaralla.

Souths will head into the match as clear favourites having not lost a GHA game all season while Yaralla came from third to qualify ahead of second-place Meteors.

There was very little separating Meteors and Sparks on the A2 Men's ladder with Sparks finishing just one win above Meteors.

The A2 Men will battle it out from 2.30pm.

The two best teams will also contest the A2 Women's final as Sparks take on Souths.

Sparks finished two competition points ahead of Souths on the ladder and also had a healthier goal difference during the regular season with +60 compared to +42.

The Women's A1 competition took a slight twist last weekend with two late goals by Sparks sealing a nail-biting 4-3 win against Souths.

 

Meteors A1 Womens team are looking for back-to-back grand final victories when they face Rockhamptons Southern Suburbs in the CQHL grand final on Saturday. (L to R): Isabel Nolke, Ainsleigh Holmes, Rachel Wilkinson, Zavah Nash, Jo Homann, Kellie Pagel, Zoe Calis, Anaya McCafferty, Sarah Price and Tori Eddy.
