Over 34's State Championships

With 10 new players there was excitement about the next generation of Masters representative players emerging for Sydney.

The team started fast with a convincing 8-2 win over Lithgow in the opening game, however losses to Metro South West Sydney and Central Coast (eventual winners) saw the team required to beat 2019 Champions Newcastle in the last round match to qualify for finals.

In their best match of the tournament they threw everything at Newcastle and dominated the majority of the game. Several near misses proved costly and with a very late goal Newcastle snuck home 1-0.

This result meant the team missed the finals and finished 5th.

Overall a great introduction to representative Masters hockey for many players and the future looks bright for the Sydney team
