Hockey Results: 1st match of season

Union 1st hockey girls travelled to Gill College on the 23 February to participate in their annual Sports day.

The girls arrived with a positive attitude and only 1 goal in mind, to leave with 2 victories. With only 25 minutes per game to prove our skill and determination, we entered our 1st encounter against Nico Malan first team, which saw the girls come out as 2-0 victors. They stuck to the game plan and the 1st box was ticked. Nico Malan must be commended on keeping Union honest as they had a few chances, which were kept out by our goalkeeper, Sakhe Booi. We then met Volkskool’s 2nd team in our 2nd fixture of the day and came out as comfortable winners, winning 9 goals to nothing. Goals by captain, Jenna McNaughton โ€“ 4, Micela Loock – 2 and 1 a piece for Rosslyn Sparks, Marchั Green and Henzั Japhta.
