They are the comeback queens of Marlborough sport.
The Kiwi senior women's team, playing in the midweek competition, took out the title with a thrilling 3-0 win over Marlborough Girls' College in last week's final.
Kiwi skipper, former Netherlands ace Daan van Vorst van Beest said that although her team struggled a bit in the early stages of the season, partly because most of the players were mothers making comebacks after long lay-offs from the sport having had children.
"We needed to find our skills again and tactics, to learn about the new hockey rules. Most players hadn't played for about 10 years so during the first couple of rounds we lost a few games.
"When all the mums re-discovered their skills, we were on fire and hardly lost or drew another game. As a coach I am most proud of the team effort. Everyone was always eager to learn, to improve and to win of course."
van Vorst van Beest was also quick to add that although their team was made up mainly of young mothers, opposition teams also had their fair share of mothers too.
In last week's final, van Voorst van Beest, Vic Struthers and Susie Glover were the goal-scorers against a team they had lost to previously in the season.
