Byron beats Coraki 5-0
Byron’s A-Reserve women’s team had reason to strut across the hockey field in the last minutes of Thursday’s game, and the goalie (perhaps out of both elation and boredom) did a victory dance in goals to celebrate the 5-0 victory over Coraki.
It was Kerry’s ‘amazing psychic abilities’ which won Byron the initial toss, and after choosing to take the ball, Coraki didn’t stand a chance.
The first 10 minutes or so showed Byron were hunting for the first goal of the game.
However, they just couldn’t manage to pull it out of their successive short corners.
The first goal was actually scored when the girls settled and implemented their strategy of short passes, which, after having been practised multiple times at training, has shown a remarkable improvement to Byron Bay’s game.
This succinct teamwork enabled Kerry to score three times, and Helen to score twice, however these goals arose from the combined effort of the entire team with the forwards, halves and backs working seamlessly together to thwart Coraki.
