McAuley win puts them straight through to hockey grand final

McAULEY Catholic College women's A-grade hockey team have claimed a place in the grand final after defeating Grafton High 2-nil in the major semi final.

McAuley coach Peter Herden said the girls had stepped up to take out the win but would have to keep up that energy if they wanted to take out the top spot.

"It was another good game against the high school sides and the girls put in a really good team effort," Herden said.

"They will have to step up again if they want to continue on this streak - the work has only just begun."

In the minor semis, Kylies defeated the Demons 2-1 in what Kylies president Trudy Schultz described as a "bittersweet" win.

"The Demons are a club we always rival, so it was good to get them in the (semi) final," Schultz said.

Kylies were the dominant side from the start and Schultz said she was pleased to see the younger team members rise to the challenge.

"They all notched up a lot and we attacked and defended very well," she said.

Kylies will this weekend go head to head with Grafton High to vie for a place in the grand final.

"If they play like they did last weekend, it will be quite an upset for Grafton I think," Schultz said.
