Govers leaves his mark on Belgium


Albion Park hockey star Blake Govers has scored a double in the Kookaburras 2-nil FIH Pro League win over Belgium in Antwerp.

Govers' first came in the 19th minute from a penalty corner before doubling his tally in the 60th minute.

Play was stopped for 15 minutes during the match because of a storm.

The victory confirms a first place finish on the standings for Australia with one home and away match remaining against the Netherlands.

Meantime, the Hockeyroos suffered a rare 1-nil loss in the women's tournament after conceding a late goal against Belgium.

South Coast duo Grace Stewart and Kalindi Commerford both featured in the match.
