Roos win when it mattered most
HOCKEY: Wallaroos spent much of the season in the shadow of Granville Tigers but struck when it mattered most.
The boys in blue-and-white finished the regular season nine points behind their long-time rivals, and had only upstaged Granville once this year.
But goals to Jaspa Wright, Jordan Pedersen, and a Trent Goldenstein double sealed victory in their most important game of the season.
"I wouldn't say we were underdogs but we have been playing good hockey lately," winning goal-scorer Pedersen said.
"Granville had a good year but we stuck in. Coach (Ryan Wareing) pulled aside a few months ago and said if we want to win three in a row, we had to pull our heads out.
"It wasn't until there was about two or three minutes to go and we were 4-2 up that I thought we had it.
"It feels fantastic."
Blake Kroning and Rhys McShane scored for the Tigers.
The win extends Wallaroos' dominance to three-straight Maryborough Hockey Division 1 Mens titles.
