Isaac Wales and Will Barritt both bagged doubles as All Blacks sealed third place and a semi-final berth with a last-round 4-0 victory over Arrows/Athletics in their Bundaberg Hockey men’s last round clash at Hinkler Park on Saturday.
Meanwhile, Waves Cities maintained their perfect men’s record, edging out Raiders/Rovers 3-2, while their women claimed No. 1 and direct passage to the final by also pipping Raiders/Rovers 4-3 thanks to a double to young gun Milee Flanders.
All Blacks’ women claimed a 2-all draw with Arrows with Jackki Greiner completing a double from a corner after the siren, but it was not enough with Arrows taking third place on goal difference.
In AFL Wide Bay Seniors, Across The Waves Eagles surrendered top spot to Bay Power after they were beaten by Hervey Bay Bombers 8.12 (60) to 6.3 (39) and the Power continued Brothers Bulldogs’ misery with a 15.11 (101) to 1.8 (14) drubbing of them.
