Echuca-Moama Hockey Club’s A men had an emphatic 5-0 win against SYC on Sunday.

Despite a first half dubbed ‘‘mediocre’’ by coach Mick Gulson, the side turned around the second half to blitz SYC at home.

The side was boosted by new recruit Matt Deppler who starred in the forward line.

Lachie Thompson also impressed the coach in the good second half.

‘‘Any win’s a good win,’’ he said.

Jono Nunn led the way for the River Rats in the second half, scoring two of the team’s goals, with singles to Ash Phipps, Adam Thompson and Jordan Tamblin.

Votes went to Lachlan Thompson, Phipps and Darren Kell.

The A women had a 2-2 draw against SYC in a hard-fought first game of the season.

Newcomers to the club and team, Stacey Smarte, Kim Broadhurst and Renee Whatman, made great additions in attack.

Votes went to Erin Thompson, Sally Thompson and Kari Gulson.

Goal scorers were Renee Whatman and Ange Acocks.
