Grand final boilover on the cards in under-16s hockey

THERE is no doubt it will be a tough ask, but Bears Elders have a strong chance to cause a grand final boilover.

Barbs Kookaburras were the form team during the regular season, and were crowned worthy minor premiers after they lost just one game.

Hot on their heels was Bears, who finished just three points adrift.

Bears will have to be on their best to get past Barbs in a match that features the top six goal scorers for the season.

Barbs' Nicholas Pate was identified by Bears coach Neville Lollback as one to watch, after the youngster slotted 19 goals during the regular season.

"He and Josh Cumberland are very dangerous," Lollback said.

"It's going to be an uphill battle for us. We have beaten them recently, so we know we can do it.

"The Barbs outfit have played together for the last few years whereas Bears are more a 50/50 mix of new and seasoned players.

"We're certainly getting closer to them."
