IT WAS a predictable week in Women's Greater Northern Hockey League with the top placed teams all getting wins under their belts.
Tamar Churinga gave Launceston City a scare, largely due to some excellent keeping from Ianthe Boden.
City got up 1-0, despite Tamar's fantastic defensive work, particularly from Alex Mainwaring and Nichole Burt.
Tamar survived the City penalty corner battery almost unscathed, only conceding to Sarah McCambridge off a well worked pass from Kee Mansell.
Narelle Nillsen and Deb West were standout performers for City in the hard fought win.
Queechy went down 2-0 to West Devonport in a fairly slow game.
Caitlin Cashion did well for the Qs, who were on the back foot following an injury to key player Mollie Allison.
Fiona Mitchell and Danielle Emmett were crucial players for West, and after a classy baseline goal from Melissa Scolyer the game was put beyond the home teams' reach.
Devonport defeated Smithton 4-1 at Circular Head, thanks to a stellar first half that saw it 3-0 up by the break.
Kaylah Rataj played a crucial role at the back for Devonport, whilst Sonia Poke and Bec Lardner were clear standouts for the home team.
City Marians easily accounted for South Launceston 5-0 at McKenna.
South was illness and injury plagued in a game that saw it take the field with last-minute fill-ins.
Devonport and West Devonport played out a 3-3 draw in their round 15 catch-up game on Wednesday night in a hard fought and predictably even match-up.
