Aaron is winner but not his wife
SATURDAY was a day of mixed emotions on the hockey field for Aaron Kenny and wife Belinda.
Only one of them was able to celebrate a win the latest round of the Maryborough District Hockey Association A1 premiership.
And victory certainly tasted sweet for Aaron.
Aaron, the captain/coach of Granville Tigers, led his team, the defending premiers, to a 4-1 victory against the team that ended the Premier League campaign last month, Gympie's Cooloola Heat.
Cameron Baker, Nathan Bristow, Jon-Paul Kahler and Dillon Hyland scored the goals.
While Aaron was celebrating a win, Granville Rovers ensured his wife, the captain of defending premiers, Wallaroos, wasn't going to enjoy the same feeling.
Goals from Erin Crick and Kim Bristow paved the way for a 2-0 win against Belinda's team, a side which included her sister, Angela Harvey, in goal.
In the other games of the round, Wallaroos beat Colts 3-1 in the men's division.
Shaun Goldenstein scored twice for Wallaroos while Tim Grevell was also on target and Steve Rowland replied for Colts.
Tinana was in goal-scoring mode in the women's showdown with United Panthers with Emily Petersen and Natalie Keam both scoring doubles in a 4-1 win.
Lyn Tucker scored for United Panthers.
