A tough encounter against Collegiate for UHS!
On Friday afternoon, 26 April, UHS met with Collegiate Girls’ High School in what turned out to be a very tough encounter for the Union teams.
It started with the U/16Bs facing Collegiate’s U/14As, which proved to be a huge miss-match.
The U/16As then showed real courage and determination in their match, to restrict their opponents to a 3 – 0 victory. Union’s players failed to convert their chances but delivered a really good performance overall.
In what was a very hard-fought encounter, the first team started their match on the back foot which resulted in them having to defend from the very first minute onwards. With slick passing, Collegiate managed to score two goals in the 1st quarter.
The 2nd quarter saw three more goals against Union, but the girls fought their way back, with determination, to only allow two goals in the 3rd quarter and none in the 4th. The final score stood at 7 – 0 in Collegiate’s favour.
Special mention must be made of Sakhe Booi for her excellent agility in the goal box throughout the match.
