Sydney’s Bentstix hockey team is into the gold medal round at the Gay Games in Cologne.

We got this report overnight from the team.

GAME 1: Sydney Bentstix vs London Royals (2)

Bentstix were expecting to walk all over this team but like most hockey teams in Cologne they are fired up when playing the Aussies.

The glory of beating the Aussies is rare and they had a good go at it. At the end of the first half scores were locked at 0-0. The pressure valve was relieved in the second half when Bentstix scored the only goal of the game.

Final Scores: Bentstix 1 def London Royals (2) 0

Bentstix went forward early in the first half to be up 1-0.

The second half was much more frenetic and the Dutch team fought back after two more Bentstix goals to be 3-1 down.

And in a final flurry, much to the pleasure of the mainly Dutch crowd, scores finished at 4-2 for Bentstix.

he Dutch team gave Bentstix a good run for their money.
