Rangiora women to play in finals


All three Rangiora Hockey Club senior women’s teams have made the finals in the Canterbury Hockey Competition this weekend. The division two women’s team, led by Janelle McKellow and Jan McDonald, qualified top of the table after the round robin so took on fourth place getter University Amazons in the semi-final on the weekend. In a tight game Rangiora scored a goal in each half and defended well to keep University scoreless. The Rangiora Evergreens division one team fought out a tough semi-final against HSOB Burnside, a team it narrowly lost to just a week before. This time the Evergreens had the better result with Katrina Carson scoring the only goal of the game. The Rangiora Stealth division four team defeated Hornby Leopards 3-2 in its semi-final, with Hannah Alison scoring a brace of goals and Sam Knight chipping in with a third goal. The senior men’s teams both played some of their best hockey of the season when they took on the leading teams in their respective grades. The division three men were unlucky not to get a win or at least a draw their game against Carlton Redcliffs with some tough calls going against them leading to Carlton’s two goals. The Division 4 men defended well to restrict HSOB Burnside to just three goals, but were hampered on attack with some key players away and injured so were unable to capitalise on some strong attacking opportunities.
