Women's team reach hockey final

The Isle of Man women’s national team will take on Jersey in the final of the four Islands hockey tournament today (Sunday).

That’s after 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.

There was disappointment for the men’s team as they missed out on a place in the final on goal difference.

After drawing 2-2 with Bermuda, the Manx team saw off Jersey, courtesy of a Karl Moore goal.

However, a 6-1 loss to Guernsey – Connor Byrne the Island scorer – in the last game meant Jersey finished above them on goal difference and will now play the hosts in Sunday’s final.
