HUNGER - that is one of the main qualities which has helped Lithgow Panthers to stand alone as the only undefeated side in the women's Premier League Hockey competition after five rounds.
On Saturday as the Panthers notched up a 2-0 win over St Pat's in Lithgow - the first time the pair had met since the 2018 grand final - it was that hunger which proved the difference.
While the Saints matched their hosts in term of penalty corner opportunities with four apiece and enjoyed plenty of circle penetrations, they were unable to convert.
As the Saints endured the frustration of having shots flash across the face or pushed just wide, Panthers found the mark twice from deflections.
One came from field play in the opening quarter, lifting the ball over the goalkeeper, the other from a penalty corner in the second period.
