Bathurst 2 capped off a fantastic Hockey NSW Open Women's Field State Championships by claiming a comprehensive 3-0 final win over Illawarra South Coast on Monday afternoon to be crowned division three champions.
The lime green and white side entered the final after going through the entirety of Saturday and Sunday, as well as Monday morning, undefeated.
Bathurst coach Ben Weal said his side left their best performance for the decider.
"On Monday I think we played our best hockey, which is really pleasing," he said.
"That's what you want to do, to be there or there about before the final and then come the final, you want to put your best performance on the field. We did that and that comes from these very experienced players."
Bathurst 2 scored early in the first quarter, after a mistake from an Illawarra South Coast defence which saw Julie Hanman pounce to give her side a 1-0 lead.
And there was another mistake only minutes later from the away defence, but Carly Hagney shot just went wide.
The scoreline remained unchanged until the third quarter, when Kristy Ekert smashed home a goal after her first effort from a penalty corner was deflected, with Bathurst taking a 2-0 lead.
That second goal came with an Illawarra South Coast off the field courtesy of a green card, but when she came back on to see the sides back to 11-on-11, Bathurst captain Ali Stanford made it 3-0.
Only plays later, Illawarra South Coast had a chance to pull the deficit back but were denied goalkeeper Kylie Tattersall.
The scores remain unchanged at the end of the fourth quarter, with Bathurst claiming a resounding 3-0 win.
Weal said his team played an almost perfect game.
"No one ever plays a perfect game because you make little errors. But they were fairly minimal and didn't hurt us at all," he said.
"We played fairly good, high percentage hockey, one with a good style with fast ball movement."
The Bathurst 1 finished midfield in division one, with a 2-all draw with Tamworth on Monday afternoon enough for them to claim fifth place out of a total of 10 teams.
Bathurst 1 claimed the one win, against Newcastle in its opening game on Saturday.
