Albany junior hockey player Tallulah Gouldthorp has produced strong performances while representing WA at the Hockey Australia under-15 girls’ championship in Sydney.

The 14-year-old started in four of seven games, adding a goal against Northern Territory, as WA Gold finished fifth of 12 teams after notching four wins.

WA Gold was the State’s main side, with WA Black also competing.

Gold recorded a 3-0 victory against NT on April 7 as Tallulah scored a penalty corner conversion in the 59th minute.

The talented junior started in the side’s wins against ACT and WA Black, playing a key role up forward.

Tallulah entered in the fifth minute in the April 5 game against Victoria White, which WA won 3-1.

Tallulah also came into the match in the early stages dur-ing defeats by both Queensland sides.

The tournament marks a busy 18 months for Tallulah, who has now represented the State in three national championships, twice at under-13 level and most recently in October, when she was named the fairest and best player.
