The Mittagong first grade ladies hockey team recorded a 5-0 win over Burrawang at Welby.
The match signaled round three of the Southern Highlands Hockey Association’s winter competition.
Two goals apiece to Karen Hamilton and Rebecca Cross guided Mittagong to victory.
Rachel Eringa started the scoring when a rebound from a short corner found the back of the net.
Hamilton registered the second goal on the back of a nice pass from her daughter April.
Mittagong led 2-0 at half time.
Cross scored the next two goals from short corners to help her team take a 4-0 lead.
Hamilton completed the rout when she scored a goal on the back of good passing from team mates.
Mittagong coach Yolande Isedale said it was a solid win by her side.
“We’re happy with the result, we played really well,” she said.
“But we are looking at little specifics and there is a lot of work in front of us.”
Isedale said 2016 would be a rebuilding year for Mittagong.
“We are bringing a lot of juniors up this year and we have a young side,” he said.
“Most of our players are between 13 and 16 years.”
Burrawang headed into Friday’s game under strength, with a large contingent of players unavailable.
However, Burrawang captain Meaghan Stanton said she didn’t want to make excuses for the loss.
“Mittagong played a good game,” she said.
Stanton said Burrawang’s best were forward Jamie Binder and goalkeeper Tara Bevan.
