Sale beats Bairnsdale

SALE continued its path to repeating its East Gippsland Hockey Association premiership successes with a good win over Bairnsdale.

Sale’s open team won 5-1, while its under 18s won 10-0.

Bairnsdale has withdrawn its women’s team this season.

Swan Reach was too good for Wellington, winning 6-2 at home in the open competition.

In the only women’s match of the round, Nagle defeated Orbost 2-0, though Orbost’s under 18s won 2-1.

Next week, Wellington will take on Sale, and Maffra heads to Swan Reach.

Orbost will host Bairnsdale, raising money to find a cure for motor neuron disease with a blue theme.
