On Saturday our 1st junior hockey girls travelled to port Elizabeth to participate in the Lorraine Tri-sports festival. The girls played three matches in wet and miserable conditions, but performed very well over- all. In the first game we played against Outeniqua Primary from George. The girls took some time to get into the game after the drive and went down 1-0 very quickly. This proved to be the necessary wake-up call and the girls, while not managing to equalise, limited… the score-line to that.
After re-grouping between games, the girls bounced back with 2 fantastic wins. They beat Charlo by 2 goals to 1, with goals coming from Soso Mroro and Chloe Erasmus. Our best performance of the day was undoubtedly against Herbert Hurd who thrashed us last year. The girls played a lovely attacking game with some beautiful passing to end the day with a 4-0 victory. Goals were scored by Soso Mroro (2), Chloe Erasmus and Xarah Hoffman.
