This year has seen the Lake Grace-Kukerin Hockey Club (Souths) form a men’s team which has been a great addition to our club. C Grade finished 2nd on the ladder, B Grade Women finished 3rd, A Grade Women finished 1st and the Men finished 2nd.
All four teams made it to the grand final in what was an intense finals series. This is a fantastic achievement for our club after enjoying four seasons of our amalgamation. Unfortunately C Grade and B Grade went down to Corrigin 2/0 and Kulin-Kondinin 1/0, respectively in the grand final.
A Grade Women enjoyed a great win over Kulin-Kondinin with the final score at 3/1. Goals to Tahryn Trevenen (1) and Melissa Eynon (2). Kelsie Adams was awarded Best on Ground for the grand final and has also been awarded Association Fairest and Best.
The men won their game against Corrigin with the game going into extra time (still no score after 7.5 minutes each way), flicks and then sudden death flicks. Great work by the team, especially the goalie, Cameron Bushby!
Thank you to all the photographers on the day – a special thanks to Nicole Argent, Suzanne Reeves and Lois Dickins.
Thank you to all our coaches, volunteers, spectators and supporters throughout the year. We have a fantastic club and look forward to the future. Go Souths - the only way is up!
