LITHGOW women’s B and C grade hockey semi finals were played with the winners off to the grand final while the others were left to fight it out in this Saturday’s final for a spot in the big show.

Results are:

Cruizers defeated Workies Blue 2-1: This was the C grade semi with the scorers for Cruizers being Kerri Sullivan and Angie Guffogg while Donna Quinn was the lone scorer for Workies.

The first half saw Workies dominate forcing Cruizers to defend with some strong tackles.

Workies finally broke the defence for Donna Quinn to open the scoring.

The second half started with some excitement with Cruizer goalie Almy Bryce successfully saving a stroke taken by Workies Cheryl Rutherford.

Workies were again unlucky when Kylie Peace made a great save on the posts from a short corner.

This sparked Cruizers’ attack with Kerri Sullivan scoring with three minutes to go and in the final 30 seconds Angie Guffogg broke the hearts of Workies to score the winning goal.

Jays defeated Workies Gold 2-1: This was a great B grade major semi final with Jays’ goalie Maggie O’Bree at her best, keeping Workies Gold scoreless in the first half with some great saves.

Jays’ teamwork was superior with Madi Haddon finishing off a well worked move to go 1-nil up.

Keeley Haddon and Lyndal Marshall were dangerous in attack with Tayla McLean working hard at centre forward and dominating play.

Olivia Thurtell and Briannna Muir were excellent for Workmens Club with Beth Cook breaking down the Jays’ attack many times.

Ziggies Blue defeated Ziggies Black 1-nil: The hero in the C grade minor semi for the Blues was Sam Dean who broke the deadlock for the win.

The game could have gone either way with Blacks’ Debbie Smith strong in the midfield.

Dannii Lemcke worked hard for Ziggies Blue with their winning goal by Sam Dean the result of some great passing.

Zig Zag Black worked hard and had a number of good scoring opportunities, but could not put them away with goalie Bree Rigby playing well for the winners.

Strong games were turned in for the Blue by Jessica Leard, Tegan Walsh and Sam Dean while the standouts for the Blacks were Debbie Smith and Janna Winnard.
