SAINTS scored a 9-1 victory against Wyverns to win the mid-season cup in Warwick ladies’ hockey at the weekend.
The game was played between the two leading teams at the end of the second round.
Saints went into the cup final as the leading side in the competition.
After missing the win against Scots PGC two weeks ago, Jodie Olsen returned to the side with a strong game.
Toni Cox was strong in defence for a Saints side which only conceded one goal.
In the Wyverns team, striker Michelle Eastwell continued her strong play from the state veterans’ championship with a good game in the cup final.
The points table is close between the top-three teams in the ladies’ competition and any team could still win the minor premiership.
