By Holly Tregenza

KYABRAM and Tongala were once again well represented in the Mooroopna B grade hockey team, with Lyn Berry and her two daughters Leesa Hogan and Kaitie Archar, as well as Haylee and Hannah Greenman from Tongala making a significant contribution.

The side won the title of B grade women premiers in the Goulburn Valley Hockey Association after defeating Echuca Moama 2-1.Both Mooroopna and Echuca Moama shared top position on the ladder throughout the season, which led to a close contest on grand final day.Mooroopna had many opportunities to score but it was Haylee Greenman who was able to kick off the win with a cracking goal from a short corner shot.

Echuca evened the score before half time, but with just 10 minutes to play Leesa Hogan received a pass from across the goal circle and made sure of a result with a perfect goal.
