CAMBRIDGE FESTIVAL, 23 - 25 JUNE

The UHS 1st Hockey and Rugby teams travelled to East Londen to take part in the Cambridge Co-Ed Festival.
Hockey:
Our first team hockey girls had a successful tournament at Cambridge, East London. Playing without 4 of their regular players who were representing our province in Kwa-Zulu Natal, the girls played excellent hockey and came home unbeaten.
Won 4 - 0 vs Hudson Park
Won 6 - 1 vs DF Malherbe
Drew 1 - 1 vs Stirling
Won 2 - 0 vs Cambridge

Thanks to coach Mr August and manager Mrs Shell who looked after our girls so well!

Rugby:
The First rugby squad attended the Cambridge High 2018 Winter Sports Festival in East London over the June/July Holiday. The squad once again did themselves proud and were superb ambassadors for our school.

Our first match was against Selbourne College and was always going to be a huge challenge despite them not being at full strength. We stayed in the contest throughout and kept fighting until the bitter end. It was a match that entertained all that were present, and our side certainly exceeded expectations. We went down 31- 48 in the end. Our try scorers were Iviwe Ndamane, Matt Harpur, Ronan Retief and Matthew Broeksma.

Our Monday fixture was against Fairmont High School from Cape Town, who had lost by one point to Cambridge High on the Saturday. We clicked from the get-go and scored within the first minute of the match. We continued to play with conviction and purpose, taking every opportunity that came our way. We lead 38 – 0 at half-time. The second half was not as fluent, and we lost a bit of rhythm and allowed our opponents to score twice. We won the match 45 – 14. Tries were scored by Luke McNaughton, Luthando Skapu, Cowan Swartz, Michael Krige and Ronan Retief (2).

Many spectators complimented our boys on their brand of rugby and passion for the White Jersey. These were two very good results with our rugby boys continuing to ‘punch above their weight’ as is the Union way.

UHS vs Selbourne College:  lost 48 - 31
UHS vs Fairmont High School:  won 45 - 14
