Young hockey stars unstoppable, unbeatable in Coulter Shield
HOCKEY: The Gympie under-11 hockey side retained the Coulter Shield for the second year running in the southeast Queensland intercity Division 2 competition in Brisbane on Sunday.
The team hopes to continue this dominance when it moves into the under-12 comp next year.
The side went into the grand final with three wins and a draw and ended up beating their Brisbane opponents 3-0.
"It was a really hard game despite the score,” under-11 player Jonathon Wilcox said.
"They had a good goalkeeper and their key players were really advanced.
"We had to try a few different methods when we took a shot at the goal. There were a few different things we tried but the most effective were long passes with lots of players on the pads of the goalie.”
