A STRONG second half from Lithgow Panthers proved the difference on Saturday as they beat St Pat’s 4-1 in their top of the table women’s Premier League Hockey match.

Playing at Bob Roach Field, Pat’s surprised Panthers when they scored the opening goal against the run of play via Paityn Simpson in the 31stminute.

Panthers came up with an equaliser 90 seconds lateras a Hannah Kable shot was deflected off a defender’s stick into the top of the net.

The teams went into half time locked at one-all, with neither able to get the upper hand.

However, in the second half the class of the Panthers came to the fore as Chelsea Marshall, Emily Thompson and Amanda Saladine all found the mark.

Panthers’ speed on the counter-attack and quick transfer of the ball opened up gaps in the Saints’ defence.

Showing exactly why they have established themselves as the team to beat, strong defence and classy attack combined in the Panthers’ dominant second half display.

The Panthers’ women will now take a well earned week off, as the Masters Women 35 and over competition taking place this weekend.

Their male counterparts will enjoy a home game, as they take on Parkes United on Saturday at the Lithgow Hockey Complex, hitting off at2.40pm.
