Golden chance for home players

Saturday will be a big day for local masters hockey with two Tasmanian teams competing for a chance to claim a gold medal on home turf.

With the women's masters championships being held in Hobart, both the over-35s and over-45s remain in the hunt for gold.

After a convincing 3-0 win over Victoria in the first semi-final, the over-45 women will play WA, who defeated Queensland 2-1.

The Tassie women are on the back of two strong performances and will be hoping to turn the tables on WA who defeated them 1-0 in their last encounter.

The over-35 women were sitting on top of the standings in their division before a narrow loss against Victoria.

The women's 45 and over gold medal match between Tasmania and WA will be played on Saturday, at 9.30am, with the over-35s playing their final game against Queensland at 3.15pm.

In other divisions at the state hockey centre, the over-40s and over-50s both play for fifth positions.
