Bay remains in the mix
WIDE Bay is still in with a chance of defending its under-19 Queensland schoolboys hockey title this weekend after an improved day at Ramsey Park yesterday.
Wide Bay lost its first game against competition favourite Capricornia 1-0.
Coach Craig Martin said the boys played well with Capricornia winning the match in the last 20 seconds of the game.
"It was a pretty close game," Martin said.
"They controlled the midfield better than us, but we had the same amount of scoring chances.
"We missed a penalty corner shot with two or three minutes to go and they scored. That was the difference.
"They are the team to beat at the moment."
Wide Bay made up for the loss with a win against Darling Downs 5-2.
The Downs took an early 2-1 lead but Wide Bay dominated the second half.
"The boys came back very well," Martin said.
"The played some well-structured hockey," he said.
Goal scorers for Wide Bay were Drew Wenzel, Jack Brooks Braden Rogers, Jack McKean and Marty Power.
