Matches called off in muddy Maffra

FOUR East Gippsland hockey matches between Maffra and Nagle were abandoned on Saturday.

The pitch at the Cameron Sporting Complex was deemed unplayable following heavy rain.

The under 11s and 13s played before the rest of the matches were abandoned.

The going was also heavy at Stephenson Park where Sale hosted cross-town rival Wellington.

Sale won the open, women’s, and under 15 and 13 matches, while Wellington won the under 18s.

This Saturday, Sale will host Nagle, while Wellington will head to Swan Reach. Maffra’s under 15 and 13 teams will host Orbost, while the rest of its teams will have a bye.
