University setting the Illawarra hockey pace

EVEN in April, University can take a stranglehold of the Illawarra men’s minor premiership with victory over Albion Park on Sunday.

Albion Park were held to a 2-all draw in their deferred game and had a bye last round, handing the advantage to their arch-rivals. Now Uni could move four points ahead of Park with a win and leave them languishing in third if Fairy Meadow can overpower Robertson.

Kookaburras talent Tristan White proved the difference in Uni’s 2-nil round three win over Fairy Meadow.

Wests bounced back from a 4-3 deferred game loss to Fairy Meadow, with a 5-1 victory against Robertson.
