Bellingen Set for Clash with Jewels

Article excerpt

LAST weekend Hockey Coffs Coast hosted the NSW Vet Women's State Championship. There was no local hockey to report, although tonight local hockey resumes.

In Division 1 Women's this weekend, Bellingen will clash with Southside Jewels tomorrow at 7.15pm.

Linda Eckhardt for Bello and Kerry Dixon for Jewels need to be watched. Jewels have been playing good hockey and may have the edge.

In the match of the round on Sunday, Orara Emus are expected to continue their winning run over Urunga Stingrays.

Heroes were well beaten last game by Thunda and at the back end of the season have a number of injury worries. They have lost Reece Edwards, Chris Herraman and now Captain Kieran Marshall for the season. Northern Beaches have a young and determined team, with star strikers Adam Ellison (11 goals for the season), Joe Piggott and Scott Mackenzie expected to have strong games.

If Heroes can shut down Ellison they may have a show. Northern beaches by a margin of two.

Grafton takes a break

WITH last Sunday's game against Grafton Sailors deferred until a few weeks' time, Southside will have to wait until Sunday week to take on Grafton Royals in Coffs Harbour.

This Sunday local men's teams will travel to Grafton to be involved in the Kelly Cup which is long in tradition in the Clarence. …
