The hockey club travelled to East London to play Cambridge in wet and cold weather. All the teams performed well, playing structured hockey in what were difficult conditions.
The 1st Team had to contend with an astro that had a great deal of water lying on the surface. They were able to adapt their game plan effectively, playing more direct hockey and throwing effective overheads into space creating opportunities for the strikers. College’s short corners were effective with Zach Micklewright drag flicking well to take advantage. College deservedly won the game 5-1.
The highlights were:
College winning all our matches. The defensive teams only conceding one goal in the 7 games played. Alex Jonckheer’s brilliant deflection to score for the U14As
