Wednesday, April 18th, 2012 - Hockey SA
Whilst not high on scoring (0-0), the Round 3 SA Hockey Men's Match between top two contenders North East and Adelaide was not short on action or controversy, with no less than 4 yellow cards dished out throughout the match.

North East finding themselves down to 9 players, twice during proceedings.

In other matches, the much anticipated clash between surprise packets and equal league leaders Forestville and the somewhat depleted Seacliff Tigers (missing key midfielder Matt McGregor amongst others), saw the Panthers come out on top in a gripping match. After scoring twice early, Forestville then conceded twice with veteran Tim Stephenson scoring from a sharp first time shot and then Lachy Seabrook. A late deciding goal in a fast moving match highlighted a terrific game, particularly by some fine goalkeeping by the Panthers keeper.

Teams Uni and Woodville would both have been disappointed not to get full points from their 3-3 draw, whilst Port were stretched by early season strugglers Burnside. The score being 5-4 at one point before Port scored twice late to get the end result. Cameron Joyce getting a hat trick in this goal feast (Port was well served by outstanding efforts from Tom Fitzgerald, Beau Aliskauskas and Scott Germein).

In the women's fixtures, Seacliff got on the board for full points for the first time this season with a 1-0 win against struggling Forestville. Whilst Port Adelaide's girls will be doing some soul searching to regain their usual mojo after losing to emerging powerhouse Burnside 2-4 at North East. Ex-Grange player Megan "Mo" Opie scored twice. Improved Woodville had a resounding but surprise 4-1 win against last year's finalists Uni, to continue their good early season form.
