Here is an up-to-date round up of the Hockey Action from the weekend's matches.

The much fancied Burnside ladies continued their impressive start to the season with a 5-2 win over struggling Grange Royals on Sunday afternoon at Port Adelaide. The Burnside goals were spread across 5 single scorers with Laura Germein getting on the score sheet for Grange with a brace of goals. In the men’s fixture, Burnside’s men finally rediscovered their scoring power with a 5-1 win over the inconsistent young Sea Eagles with Matt Claxton and Sam Tyler being influential for the Bulldogs.

The Adelaide v Uni fixtures were very closely fought with the girls drawing 2-2, and the Peas triumphing in a tight contest 4-2 in the men’s match with Shaun Dawson scoring twice for Adelaide.

An early goal for Laura Boseley saw Woodville get off to a good start against Forestville, Woodville converting two more of their numerous chances through Katie Pisani and Belinda White, while the Panthers could not get on the scoresheet. The Forestville men reversed this result with a 4-2 win to continue their great start to the year.

North East girls team started well at home against the Magpies and were one up at half time through a short corner conversion from Nic Mentha. Despite the North East debutant goalie Sam Hogan saving a penalty stroke, the Port girls then asserted their dominance in a competitive match to triumph 4-1. The men’s game was fast paced, full of open hockey and plenty of chances. The grand final rematch seeing Port go to a 5-2 lead before a persistent Zulu’s outfit who brought the score back to 5-5 with a short corner conversion just before full time. Andrew Searle came away with 2 goals being the leading scorer on the ground and Michael Lubcke who was clearly the best on ground in a brilliant display. Searle and Nathan Greenshields were also deemed as playing well for Port and lastly Will Telfer and Guy Bolton starring for the Zulu’s.

Outlined as probably the best potential contest for this week’s upcoming fixtures is the battle between Woodville and North East in the ladies competition as both teams are battling for 4th place on the ladder. The Tuesday night battle between the mercurial Magpies and rampant Forestville men's team at the State Hockey Centre also promises to be a cracking affair.
