28.01.12. The Mens Sharks Team were out to prove that the opening game was no fluke. After a good start they quickly blew out to a two goal lead in the first quarter. This was then pegged back by the Jets to make it 3-3 at half time. Neither team could break away leaving the score at 6-6 at full time despite the great full length of the pool shot by Alex Bennie that went just over the bar in the last second.
This then set up a very exciting penalty shootout which is how draws are going to be decided this season. With a great save by Patrick in goals the Sharks managed to scrape home for the second consecutive game. The women's team also backed up their first win with a 7-4 victory.
Earlier in the day the Womens team accounted for the Jets 8-4. The Sharks got off to a slow start but eventually clicked into gear in the second half moving away to a comfortable win.
The Sharks fielded a very young side but guided by the more experienced girls such as Australian Stinger, Nicola Zagame (above), the younger ones, like 15 year old Lena Mihailovic (below) were able to contribute to the win.
