The early evening game between Adelaide and Forestville played at State Hockey Centre on Saturday 28 April did indeed at times resemble battles fought from the trenches.
The image shows the courage and determination of the players at all levels, including ground.
Adelaide had an early advantage, a very disciplined Forestville team drew level 3-3 at half time and won 5-3.
3 games played at Premier League level within the week may have taken its toll on Adelaide players who nonetheless went into the game with a win in mind.

Note: While Im happy for my match summary and photo to have been used I have not been credited as the photographer. This photograph was taken at 1/500 ASA3200 under lights and required work as most photographs do before being published. I spend hours producing photographs for publishing by accredited users and posting to my blog so it is reasonable to expect, as the author of the work, I be credited.
