WAIS Stars in Action For Diamonds in AHL

Hockey (Women) | Published: Tue 25 March 2008

The Smokefree WA Diamonds have suffered defeat in their first AHL match for the 2008 season after losing 1-0 to NSW yesterday.

The Diamonds squad contains a swagger of WAIS elite and development squad athletes and is considered one the strong favourites for the title.

The Diamonds showed early promise but were unable to penetrate a resolute NSW defence and were made to pay on 38 minutes when Kate Hollywood swooped on a loose ball to register the only goal of the game.

The Diamonds will be looking to make up for the dropped points when it takes on Northern Territory today in Perth.
