Snr Hockey vs Burgersdorp

Hockey teams victorious

When Burgersdorp High School’s hockey teams visited UHS on Saturday morning, 4 May, they found themselves on the back foot from the get-go, when their u/16A team went down 6 – 0 to Union’s u/16Bs.

Burgersdorp’s second team also conceded six unanswered goals as Union u/16As cruised to a 6 – 0 victory. A great achievement for the u/16As in taking on a senior team

Union’s first team girls then took to the turf.  They struggled to keep possession for lengthy periods of the first half and failed to convert chances on offer.

Goals by Henze Jaftha, Rosslyn Sparks and Marche Green in the first half, however, saw Union lead by 3 – 0 at half time.

It was, however, a game of two halves with the Union girls seeming to find their flair in the second half.  Union managed to score a further 6 goals with an improved performance.  Goals by Rosslyn Sparks, Jenna McNaughton, Laetitia Theron (2), Micela Loock and Jade Shires sealed a 9 – 0 victory.

“There is much work needed to be done this week ahead of a tough fixture against Stirling High School this weekend,” says coach Alvin August.

“The tone will need to set from the word go in order to come home successful.”
