HOCKEY: Magnificent seven for Coleraine

COLERAINE crushed Instonians with a magnificent seven goal rout last Saturday - with Katherine Miniham firing a wonderful double hat-trick.

Katherine Miniham opened the scoring after 10 minutes with a well worked penalty corner which Emma Jameson and Lisa Browne in the forward line had worked hard to win.

Katherine doubled the tally within three minutes with an individual run from outside the 25 yard line to slot the ball home past the visiting keeper.

The opposition were always dangerous on the break, and they scored from open play after a goalmouth scramble.

But Katherine Miniham was on hand again to complete her hat-trick and give the hosts a 3-1 lead.

Instonians didn’t give up and pulled another goal back but Rachel Miniham made it 4-2 following an excellent run and finish.

Coleraine came out even stronger in the second half and following a series of short corners Katherine Miniham was able to add two further goals.

Before the end Katherine completed a supber double hat-trick with a fine reverse stick finish.

Coleraine host Banbridge at the University this Saturday in their bid to move further up the Senior 3 league table.
