SATURDAY saw both of Wagin’s men’s hockey teams playing in Narrogin under lights.
Wagin White was up first at 6.55pm against All Blacks, a team which has been struggling all year and White was determined to get a much needed win on the board.
White started the game fast and hard and were rewarded with a couple of great goals from Terry Anthony and Kevin Foale.
It was the perfect start and they continued to dominate the game not letting All Blacks have any opportunity to score.
At half-time the score was 3-0 and by the end of the game Wagin doubled that score, winning 6-1.
It was a great confidence building win with everybody playing well.
The goal scorers were Kevin Foale 2, Terry Anthony 2, Gavin Kirk 1 and Bryce Stephens 1.
Wagin Black had the game straight after at 8.20pm against Olympics.
Olympics had only dropped one game for the year and were to be Blacks’ biggest test so far.
Black started strongly with Dwight Kellow scoring two goals in the opening 10 minutes.
Wagin soon made the score 3-0 after Sam West got onto a great cross from Kellow, slamming the ball into the back of the goals.
Olympics came out firing in the second half and were the first to get a goal, taking the score to 3-1 and letting Black know they were not going down without a fight.
The game deteriorated into a slugfest as both teams tired and started making a lot of errors, the ball continually rebounding from defence to defence with no real opportunities to score.
Black scored again late in the half to put the game out of Olympics reach when Wade Enright finished off some great teamwork and slotted a ball into the top of the goals.
With the siren about to go, Olympics got a late consolation goal making the score line 4-2.
It was a good win to Wagin Black who remain undefeated nearing the end of round one.
The umpire’s best players were Lance Mudgway, Cam Forrest and Blair Forrest.
The goal scorers were Dwight Kellow 2, Sam West 1 and Wade Enright 1.
Wagin Black play Dumbleyung next Saturday in Dumbleyung at 3pm and Wagin White play Riffs in Wagin at 1.30pm.
