The Whanganui team was doing just fine against Premier Women's top side at the Twin Turfs on Saturday, until the home team just sent the ball to their legend and said "save us".

Whanganui lost 4-2 in their second Hockey Manawatu match against College A, having been deadlocked 2-2 with them right through half time and three quarter time.

"It's not as bad as the score seems," said player-coach Colleen Baylis.

"It was 2-2 for a long period of time, and then they scored two goals in the last four minutes, courtesy of Kayla Sharland."
