Coach call for improvement despite 11-0 win
SHARP-SHOOTER Trudi Pedersen ran riot to help orchestrate a comprehensive 11-0 Wallaroos spanking of a hapless Brothers.
Pedersen netted four shots in a dominate display for the Wallaroos in the Maryborough and District Hockey Association Division 1 competition, while Belinda Kenny and Kate Rosolen both grabbed doubles.
Wallaroos coach Vicki Dove, however, said her side's performance was far from the polished result that the score would suggest.
"They had a few players out I think but it should have been a lot more on our part," Dove said.
"We played a fair bit of attack and we missed a lot. Their goalkeeper played very well. She saved an awful lot but we put it straight to her pads."
Dove said Kenny led from the front, Pedersen was strong, and Deanne Jeffery played well from the back.
She said the Wallaroos needed to improve "person-to-person passing to the stick" and must learn to capitalise on its opportunities if it is to win this season's competition
The Wallaroos were scheduled for a bye this weekend but will now play Tinana on Friday in a postponed match.
