AHL Day 5 - SA Hotshots 2 v NSW Waratahs 7 - played Friday 10 October 2014
All games of the AHL are being played in Adelaide, South Australia at the
State Hockey Centre at Pooraka over the week of 4 - 11 October 2014.
A day when the scoreboard showed the temperature was over 35C and it felt like it.
The heat was on on the field too. NSW scored early, SA responded quickly but
from then on NSW blazed away.
The second goal for the Hotshots came after Matt Claxton was felled by a ball to
the knee and promptly responded by scoring a goal off a short corner penalty.
NSW scored off a penalty stroke, field goals and short corners.
There were rounds of aerial ping pong to add some flair.
Both teams played out the game enduring the heat which seemed to be felt more
by those on the sideline.
Adelaide has turned on brilliant weather for most of the tournament today being
