Sports wrap: Hockey, football, cycling and soccer


Werribee had six individual goalscorers in a 6-0 rout of Penleigh and Essendon Grammar School in the Hockey Victoria women’s Vic League 2 on Saturday. The Tigers had plenty of attacking options, with Laura Baker, Shannon Healand, Lisa Ross, Morgan Jolly, Jodie Dumbleton and Gabrielle van Dam getting in on the action. It wasn’t as much fun for the men’s Vic League 2 side, with the Tigers pummelled 4-1 by top dogs Kew. Youngster Jayden Street took over the white board with coach Ryan Tout away on representative duties.

Justin Johns booted six goals, Justin Ray kicked five and Chris Sneddon and Brenden Miller chimed in with four apiece. The Warriors are fifth on the ladder, a game out of the top four.


Defending champion Dom Dudkiewicz was made to earn Footscray Cycling Club’s road race title by a challenging 90km circuit that started at Little River and wound its way through the Brisbane Ranges before a tricky sprint into Kirksbridge. Dudkiewicz didn’t like the idea of relinquishing the coveted number one, taking the win and securing the title for another year. “I’m honoured to be the club road champ again,” he said. “I love the history of this club, I love racing with Footscray and I’m not going anywhere.”
