From comeback efforts to high-scoring contests, there was plenty going on around the grounds during round seven of the Stiles Electrical Premier League.


WASPS have come from behind to pull off a stunning 6-4 victory over a fast-starting Reds outfit during the Goldfields Festival of Hockey on Saturday 11 May.

The Reds and the WASPS travelled to the Goldfields to go head-to-head during the Stiles Electrical Premier League Regional Round as part of the Goldfields Festival of Hockey, supported by the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder and the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries.

Reds were off to a flying start with Brodee Foster scoring a goal within the opening two minutes of the match, only to be quickly followed by a further goal from Jammie Lewis to give themselves a head start.

Another minute later, James Cameron scored the third goal for the Reds, leaving the WASPS stunned.

Already three goals down within the first five minutes, WASPS played catch-up for the remainder of the opening term but found themselves smothered by Reds’ defensive pressure.

The second quarter saw Reds extend their lead further with a second James Cameron goal, though the WASPS would soon respond with a goal of their own via Brandon Gibbs.

The contest reached a stalemate, but the Reds went into half time holding the 4-1 advantage.

The second half saw WASPS on a mission, determined to stage a comeback.

Within minutes, Trent Mitton stepped up and scored a field goal to get the WASPS on track.

As Reds looked to stifle the WASPS’ efforts, Gibbs would score a second goal, followed by a second Mitton goal to bring the scores level at three-quarter time.

WASPS’ comeback mission continued into the final quarter, with Mitton quickly scoring to bring the scores level.

While the Reds fought hard to find a way to respond, the WASPS ultimately prevailed with a goal from Charlie McIntyre sealing the deal for the WASPS.

Elsewhere, two goals from Tom Harvie helped Westside Wolves hold off Hale 2-1, Fremantle Cockburn defeated North Coast Raiders 8-4 in a high-scoring match, UWA defeated Mods-OGM 5-2, YMCC beat out Whitford 3-1, a last-minute goal from Mark Brodie saw the match-up between Melville and Victoria Park end in a 2-2 draw.

Earlier in the week, the remainder of the mid-week matches for round five took place, which saw Hale defeat North Coast Raiders 7-1, while UWA held off Whitford 2-1.

As WASPS looked to respond, they struggled to get past the Reds’ defence, trailing 0-1 at quarter time.

The second quarter saw WASPS continue trying to find a way to get in front but found themselves swarmed by Reds at every turn.
