Busselton’s top men’s hockey team Wests extracted some revenge with a 4-1 victory over South West Hockey League premiers Boyanup on Sunday.

The grand final rematch provided some coveted revenge for Wests who had lost to Boyanup in their two previous encounters this season.

Boyanup were looking to extend their lead at the top of the ladder, while Wests were looking to lock away their finals berth for 2020 after defeating Marist on Friday night.

Wests started the better of the two sides, and took a 1-0 lead in the first quarter and soon extended their lead to 2-0.

Boyanup continued to push hard to get back in the game, however it was Wests that were making the most of their opportunities.

Boyanup came out firing in the second half, however Wests defence stood firm, with goalkeeper Daniel McKeown continuing his fine recent form with another best on ground performance.

At the other end of the ground, Ben Van Overdijk scored his first goal for Wests with an expert finish from a short corner and extended the lead to 4-0.

Midfielder Ben Dalton scored a late consolation goal for Boyanup, but it mattered little to the result as Wests finished comfortable victors.
