Roller hockey club collects five medals

Northsports' annual Country Cup has only gone from strength-to-strength and once again, the host club has cleaned up across the divisions.

Following on from last year's success where they won three divisions, the Glen Innes-based club finished with two gold medals and three silver this year.

Against fellow roller hockey clubs who came from interstate, the under 11s and ladies took out their divisions while the under 14s, 17s and seniors won silver.

Individually, Northsports cleaned up as well with Brooklyn Elliott, Maddie Crawford, Kayden Elliott and Errol Heagney scoring most valuable player in their divisions as well as Jamie Crawford, Tyler Miller and Kristyl Pocock receiving best goalkeeper awards.

Northsports coach Daniel Heagney said it was a massive effort to collect that many accolades.

"There was a lot of quality competition, particularly in the top grade -we had six senior teams competing so it was a pretty good achievement to come in second," he said.

"For the ladies as well to take another gold, we are really continuing to dominate the sport on the ladies side of things.

"We are obviously working in the right direction, we are maintaining fairly solid results across the board which is great to see."

Heagney said there was a "packed rink" all weekend with people turning up in droves to support roller hockey.
