No trouble with doubles

ANDREW Farmilo finished yesterday’s round of Tamworth women’s and men’s hockey with a double double.

Farmilo is coaching the Olympians women’s side and was delighted with most of their 10-3 win over Tudor Wests on the Olympia pitch Sunday morning.

Then he took his stick and helped his Services Workies come back from a 5-2 deficit to win 6-5 with a goal with 35 seconds left on the clock.

While he had double successes as a coach he also scored twice for his Services Workies side.

Jack Cruickshank was the star of the win with an impressive game.

Isaac Woodley was another.

Nick McIlveen, Jarrod McCluand and Will Turner were best for a Souths United side that relinquished a lead late in the game for the second week running.

In the other men’s first grade match Tudor Wests won 1-0 thanks to a David Willis Goal.

Andrew Finch, Martin Courtney and Jock Evans were standouts.

Earlier in the Services’ women’s side also had a win, beating Waratahs 4-3.

Kim Hill, Michelle Aslin, Tess Pennefather and Liz Thomas all scored for Services while Anita Cryer, Maddy Cryer and Pip Ash notched the three Waratah goals.

Kate Perrett, Michelle Collins and Michelle Aslin were standouts while Dana Constable led the Olympians in their seven-goal success over Tudors.

She also scored three while Naomi Spark also notched a hat trick with Claudia Nielsen landing two goals.

Georgia Cooper and Emily Chaffey also scored for Olympians with Shelby Hatch, Esther Griffiths and Justine Davies scoring in a good period for the side in the first half.

“It was a good result,” Farmilo said of the 10-3 win.

“We had a  period where we lapsed for 15 minutes and they scored their three.”

His side led 6-3 at half time but created more space in the second half.

“We kept it wide and threw it early rather than carry it like we did in the first half. “The idea was good although we didn’t quite hit the target.

“Dana was a standout for us. Naomi worked hard and Tegan Resch was good too. Collectively we played much better as a unit in the second half.”
