Banks Hockey Festival - 2007
Compliments of the Barbados Nation News
Hockey has stolen the spotlight over the past week, and Dominion, the major showpiece, the men's title at the annual Banks Hockey Festival. Dominion's fourth title in five years was probably their most satisfying. It was earned with flawless progress through the pool stages and capped with a thrilling 3-2 win over the quality Grasshappers side from the Netherlands in the men's final at the AstroTurf of the Garfield Sobers Sports Complex.
