West Devonport shows its class

WEST Devonport made the most of its opportunities against Queechy Penguins in their Round 7 women's Greater Northern League Hockey clash, winning 3-0.

West looked slick in attack all game as it stretched the Q's defence of Kellie Greatbatch and Lauren Robertson.

Stacey Lyons scored a neat field goal at the four-minute mark, before Amee Freeman tucked the ball away, taking West to the break 2-0 up.

Petria Button made some good saves in the Qs net, but was unable to stop a second Freeman effort to seal the game for the visitors.

Launceston City showed its classy finishing, defeating South Launceston Suns, 4-2.

The Suns lost Miranda Grant to a split forehead just nine minutes in, but regained composure, scoring through an Alison Baker field goal.

City turned the tables, with Emily Nunn smashing in a PC shot, before Narelle Nillsen added two of her own.

Molly Lewis fired up for South, bagging a goal early in the second half, but a beautiful run from Ash Robertson allowed Maddie Walker to slide the ball under the keeper to round out the scoring.

Smithton went down to Burnie Baptist 3-2 at home.

Baptist's Amy Dart and Dana Challis were creative up front, scoring three between them by half time, despite the defensive pressure of Bec Gould and Bec Lardner.

Smithton came out firing in the second half, pressing into the Baptist D and forcing the visitors back into defence.

Sonia Poke and Manika Hills both scored for Smithton. Kira Johnstone also played well throughout.

Tamar Churinga came away with a 2-0 win from its clash with Devonport.

Cara Evans was again instrumental, scoring a field goal in each half, one off a cracking long pass from Rose Sauer, to secure the result.

Devonport fought back hard, forcing Tamar into defence towards the end, but the home team was unable to convert.

It was another game for head injuries, with both sides losing a player, but remaining composed to see out the match.

City Marians defeated South Burnie in an intense 5-3 game.

Brooke Clarke was in fine form for City, bagging three for her efforts, along with Monique Grundy and Jemma Kenworthy, who earned one each.

South fought for the full 70 minutes, Jodi Lancaster scoring one and Rhiannon Sayer getting two for the game.
