OLD GOLD ROOSTERS women put themselves on the brink of a semi-final spot in the 26th Banks International Hockey Festival with a come-from-behind 2-1 win over Big Apple HC of the United States in one of the feature matches on Day 2 yesterday at Kensington Oval.
Big Apple will now likely need a win in today’s final Zone A match against fellow semi-final aspirants Du Badd Crew, to secure their advance.
In women’s Zone B, A Badd Connection (ABC) were held to a goalless draw by the teen talent of Generation X, but the six-time champions are still favoured to top their section.
Maple also made big strides towards the semis with an important 1-0 win over Deacons late in the afternoon. (CC)
