After the Season opening of our Rink last week, Healesville played their first game at home for the 2021-22 season against Heathmont under very cold and wintery conditions.
Healesville started off well and at the half way mark all rinks were neck and neck with Heathmont.
Unfortunately Heathmont then started to pull away, although Adrian Beales and Allan Phillips rinks were hanging in there for a very close finish.
The game was played in good spirits and we look forward to playing them again later in the year.
The final result was Heathmont 99 Healesville 68
Adrian Beales, John Clark, Bob Brown James Beales 20-23
Steve Graham, Chris Boland, Mick Featherstone, Robert Ayres 13-31
Mark Ward, Mark Hoffman, Brad Chandler, Chris Hawting 16-25
Allan Phillips, Gayanne Hutt, Rita Featherstone, Ian Milgate 19-20
Thanks to the generosity of our Uniform Sponsors, First National, Four Pillars, Watts River Brewing and Fast Freddies Tyre service, along with the hard work of John Clark, we were able to acquire new uniforms this season with a new design and new additional colours, Red and White, in keeping with our other local sporting clubs.
