IT MIGHT not have been the most exciting game of hockey McAuley coach Peter Herden has watched, but his team will take the points after defeating Kylies 3-0 last Wednesday night.

The other match of the round ended with the same score, with Grafton High beating a heavily depleted Demons side 3-0.

"It wasn't an exciting game to watch, in that it never really got to any great heights, but it was a solid match, with nothing out of the ordinary," Herden said.

"The result was a good boost for our confidence. Not that we've been in a rut, but things just haven't seemed to be working for us lately.

"We finished our chances better than we have been, which was positive."

With four rounds remaining in the women's A-grade competition, Grafton High has stamped itself as the premiership favourite, and McAuley will come up against the school team on Saturday.

"Grafton High have been playing well, but as we've said all through the competition, it will only take a good run of form during the finals for any one of the four teams to win," Herden said.

Grafton High appreciated Tiahnee Cropper stepping up from AR1 and she, Brie-Ellen Conyard and Anna Brotherson were the goal scorers against Demons.
