After a hard week of preparation in anticipation for this encounter, our junior hockey girls travelled to Port Elizabeth this weekend to take on a very polished Collegiate side. Although the score-line was disappointing, the same cannot be said for the match. The Union girls stuck to the game plan especially formulated for this fixture, and played attractive, fast-paced hockey with accurate passes and some brilliant team work that surprised their opponents and had them reeling on occasion. Despite Collegiate finding the back of the goals on a regular basis throughout the game, the Union team never once gave up or looked like they were losing heart. Their determination carried them through and finally saw Soso Mroro smashing home a beautiful goal near the end of the match. If the team can build on the way they played in this match, I can only see success for them in the future. I am exceptionally proud of the girls and am very excited to see if they can continue to play the mature hockey that they displayed on the day. The entire team deserves special mention for their outstanding efforts. Well done girls!
