Scarred for Life

Scarred for Life – Sat Oct 13th, Western Pavillion

On Saturday October 13, the Margaret River Hockey Club hosted it’s second “Scarred For Life” memorial match in honour of past players Ken Howes and Stuart “Scar” Campbell, whom both took their own lives on 2016.

The successful day included past players returning from Bunbury and as far as Perth, along with local stalwarts coming to witness the fun, family friendly match between Settlers and Breakers.

Legend, Wally Zalewski volunteered to “umpire” the 2 x 20 minutes halves. The silver Fox, Jarrad Zanich opened strongly for Settlers and somehow created some lucky forward moves. He shone later in defence, making 2 unbelievable saves on the goal line, and then scored from an over head, flicked over the shoulder of the surprised Colin Fox. Breakers Dan Bell was like a brick wall in defence and Brynley Jenkins appeared at home on grass as he is on turf for Settlers, setting up a few goals for the defending runners up. Both Chloe and Asha Altmann had exemplary games, as did Jarrad Howes, who managed to stay on his feet a whole lot more than last year.

Jon Tennant had a fine game in the back line for Settlers and used his reach to advantage. Luke Altmann was solid as was the running Steven Noakes. Errol Beere also had a cracker for Breakers as did Kate Mann. Ross MacKillop had travelled down from Perth but showed no signs of fatigue, turning back the clock with some classic forward runs. Maxine Williams pulled on the green and gold at late notice and trapped a nice over head late in the game.

After some dubious umpiring decisions, Breakers still managed to sneak through with a 1 goal advantage, to take the trophy home once again.

The club committee launched the match in 2017 and used funds raised to host a mental health awareness session for local sporting clubs. This years’ money raised ($800) will be used to sponsor a student to attend Camp Hero, an initiative by Perth mental health charity Zero2Hero.

Special thanks to Home Hardware, Yahava Koffeeworks, Temper Temper Chocolate, Colonial Brewing Co., Phyllis and Bob Fox, Brumby’s, Baz the Butcher for donating prizes and goods for the day.

12th September – Fundraising at Domino’s, Margaret River

Raj and the team at Domino’s chose to support our Hockey Club for one of their “Raise some Dough for local community groups” events.  This meant that if you had pizza for dinner on 12th September, or you got your friends and family to have pizza, the club benefited in the form of money donated per pizza.

So thank you to those that joined the “Pavement Party” on the 12th and those that took their pizza home!
