On Friday 5th June, the Lower North Coast Boys Hockey team travelled to Grafton to play other teams from the North Coast. The teams were Far North Coast, Northern Rivers, Mid North Coast and Lower North Coast.
The boys were also playing to be considered for selection in the North Coast PSSA team to play at the state carnival in Sydney later this term.
The boys from the Lower North Coast team were as follows:
Laurieton PS - Jake McKinley, Blayne Lambert Bignell, Jye Hinder, Jarmyn Hudson, Riley Papas, Blake Kennedy, Damon Alaban, Nash Lawrence, Beau Lloyd, Sean Dickson
Tacking Point PS - Ryan Hugo
Kempsey West PS - Caleb Kenah.
The boys played three games during the day where the standard of hockey was very good from all teams. Jye Hinder, who played goalie, impressed the selectors, while Jake McKinley was selected as a shadow reserve for the North Coast team.
Our team's behaviour and enthusiasm were outstanding. They had a great day playing hockey and representing the Lower North Coast zone.
