Years 7&8 team win Hockey Premiership and make Fintona history

16 June 2017

Our Year 7 & 8 Hockey team, skilfully coached and led by Sports Teacher Carmen Timms, won the Junior B grade Grand Final at the State Hockey Centre yesterday. Significantly, this is the first Hockey Premiership Fintona has won and certainly the first over the past 17 years of the GSV era.

In the semi-final, the girls defeated Our Lady of Mercy College 3 – 1 in a closely fought contest between the two teams. The result was level at half time and after a quick pep talk, the girls systematically weaved their way through the OLMC defence to score their first goal.

After a 30 minute break, the team took to the field to face Camberwell Girls’ in the Grand Final. The girls were fatigued from their previous match and admirably displayed great tenacity and resilience. They played flawlessly and the final score was Fintona 2, Camberwell Girls’ 0.

Congratulations to our inspirational coach Mrs Timms and the Year 7 & 8 Hockey team for making Fintona Hockey history!
