Women triumph in four nations

The Island women’s national team have won the four Islands hockey tournament in Guernsey.

Goals from Kim Carney and Andrea Kneen secured the silverware as they beat Jersey 2-0 in Sunday’s final to complete a superb weekend.

It followed three straight wins in the competition on Saturday.

The Island opened its account by defeating Bermuda 7-0.

A hat-trick from Kim Carney, two from Andrea Kneen and one apiece from Kirsty Bowley and Louise Corkill did the damage.

The team went onto edge out Orkney 1-0 before seeing off hosts Guernsey 4-0 – Kim Carney, Zoe Carney, Kneen and Sarah Breen on target – to seal a place in the final.

And the rest, as they say, is history.

The national men’s team eventually finished in third place.

After drawing 2-2 with Bermuda, the Manx team saw off Jersey, courtesy of a Karl Moore goal but a 6-1 loss to Guernsey – Connor Byrne the Island scorer – meant they missed out on a place in the final on goal difference.

There was some consolation as they beat Bermuda 5-3 in the re-match to gain third place - Karl Moore (three), Chris Caldwell and Conor Byrne the scorers.
