The University of Western Australia’s men’s hockey team will be aiming for seven straight gold medals after booking their spot in the final.
UWA made light work of Monash University defeating them 9
-1 in a one sided match.
UWA are captained by 21-year-old Dave Edmonds who has led the side in the past three premierships.
Edmonds said the strength of the side is due to the depth of hockey in Western Australia.
“This year we have two players who played in the Junior World Cup which was held last year, being Chris Bausor and Matt Boyce,” Edmonds said.
“We also have Craig Boyne who won the Olympian's medal in 2009 (for best played in the first division league in WA) which Chris Bausor came a close second in this year (and won best junior player).
”Apart from that I think most if not all of our players have played for WA at junior representative level (U/15, U/16, U/18 or U/21), so we think we should have a fairly strong team this year and are hoping to notch up another win.”
UWA will be red hot favourites to take home the gold medal, after remaining undefeated on their way to the gold medal match.
UWA will take on the Adelaide University in the gold medal match today.
