Allister takes out gold in Fiji
by Stephanie Gropler
Local hockey star Tara
Allister has returned home
from the Oceania Pacific
Cup in Fiji with a gold medal
proudly draped around her
The 21-year-old arrived back in
Australia last week and said she
was “over the moon” with the
“It is a very good feeling and it is
very special. I am very honoured at
the same time as well,” she said.
Allister was selected in the
Australian under 21 women’s
country squad, following her per-
formance at the 2014 Australian
Country Championships in
Allister competed in the same
tournament in 2012, which she
said made this year’s one-goal win
over New Zealand “even better”.
“We played in the gold medal
match against Fiji last time, but
we only came away with silver,”
“We were quite lucky to get
a gold medal this time as New
Zealand put in a very strong side.
“They were a very, very good
side to come up against.”
Allister said the win came as
a surprise, as the Australian side
went up against New Zealand in a
“We lost to New Zealand 1-
nil first of all, so we were lucky
enough to get away with a win in
the grand final,” she said.
Allister played about seven games
throughout the 12-day tournament
against countries such Vanuatu,
Samoa and Papua New Guinea and
said she enjoyed playing a different
position on the field.
“I was playing the centre-mid
position, so (that means) a lot of
running and attacking,” she said.
“It is probably more of a control-
ling position on the field, which
is different to last time because I
played half back.”
While in Fiji, Allister said she
was able to experience the culture
and stayed at a resort for three days
after the tournament.
“It was a great way to celebrate,”
