Queens of the Pitch, Again
10 May; Thomas Lutwyche


Queen’s College retained their Women’s Hockey title in a tense battle with arch rivals Ormond  College with a penalty stroke win on Sunday evening.

A sizeable and noisy crowd of around 350 turned out to cheer on their respective college’s in what was a rematch of last year’s Grand Final. It was Ormond who took control of the game early, pushing the pace and earning a penalty corner in the first minute which Queen’s cleared with a goal mouth scramble.

The back 3 for Ormond controlled the flow of play for the remainder of the first period with Queen’s  struggling to get out of their half with any attacking flow.  However Ormond couldn’t convert their possession dominance into chances and only one shot on target forced a fine save from the Queen’s goalkeeper after 10 minutes.

Closing in on half time Ormond’s forward pressure finally paid dividends as they earned a penalty corner and a variation from the first few times saw Indi McKenzie bury it powerfully past the keeper.

At half time Ormond Coach Val Vos mentioned to her team Queen’s fitness and forward running needed to be contained and this proved to be the difference last year. The team took this on board and continued to dominate midfield possession for the first 10 minutes before Queen’s players stepped it up a notch. A couple of strong forward runs from Queener Sally McBride and her fellow strikers challenged the Ormond defence for the first time as pressure began to mount.
With about 5 minutes remaining in regulation, Queen’s pressure paid off earning a penalty corner.  A well executed set play saw a powerful shot deflect off a defender into the goal to even up the match.

Both teams traded attacking forays but as the whistle sounded the match headed into golden goal extra time. Few scoring changes eventuated for either team in the two periods of 5 minutes each way, as teams played a more conservative style not wanting to give up  a goal, meant the game was to be decided by penalty strokes.

Both teams scored their first stroke before both keepers saved the next. The next two shots for each team found the back of the net, before on the fifth and final shot for Ormond, the Queen’s goalie came up big with a leg save. The final stroke was placed past the goalie to secure the title for Queen’s College, sparking celebrations from the team and supporters as they poured onto the pitch in full voice celebrating the win.

In the 3 v 4 playoff it was St. Hilda’s who earned the victory over University College.

In the Men’s Soccer competition finishing on Friday, it was Trinity College putting in a flawless performance to defeat International House 2-0 to secure the title. An extra time winner from St. Hilda’s saw them claim third place from University College.

The Semester 1 College Sport program wraps up on Saturday 17th May with the College Rowing Regatta held on the Yarra River.
