TWO of Navy's most talented hock-
ey players helped steer the ADF
women's team to victory against
arch-rival New Zealand in an Anzac
Test Series in Sydney from August
Team captain LS Talei Stoll and top
goal scorer LEUT Christie Underwood
ran rings around the Kiwi defence.
They were two of the stand-out
performers in guiding the ADF women
to a 3-1 series win at the Sydney
Olympic Park Hockey Centre.
Inside forward and goal-scoring
machine LEUT Underwood said the
team's determination and high skill
level were the decisive factors behind
"It was a very gutsy effort by the
girls," said LEUT Underwood, who
scored three goals for the series.
"We really moved the ball well and
linked up in the centre.
"And Talei (LS Stoll) really stepped
up as captain and motivated the girls."
LS Stoll was impressed by the leg
speed of her teammates.
"We stepped up and got to the ball
first, and we ran as hard as we could.
The Kiwis, though, were a very tough
side," she said.
Fellow teammates were full of
praise for their captain and top goal
scorer after the game.
PTE Ashlee Makim said LS Stoll's
hard work across the park made things
easier for the rest of the team.
PTE Alice Burrell was impressed
with LEUT Underwood's ability to lift
the team with inspiring plays.
In the men's competition, the ADF
suffered a 4-0 loss to an unstoppable
New Zealand Defence Force team.
AB Nick Schiavo remained opti-
mistic in the face of his side's defeat.
"We did play well for a team that's
never really played together before,"
"The Kiwis were a very competi-
tive side, they had it all over us. I see
why they are in the NZDF side."
