1st Team Hockey Report

The 1st team hockey match vs Selborne was poised to be an exciting match with both teams having had good results so far this year. The Four Squares took the game to Selborne in the opening quarter and both teams launched attack after attack throughout the first half. Mo Moosa made excellent saves, keeping College in the game, but the visiting team scored the opening goal through a penalty corner minutes before half time. As College pushed for an equalizer, they were left vulnerable defensively and Selborne capitalized on this to score a second. Despite dominating the majority of the second half, the St Andrews team were unable to score and ended up losing the game 0-2.
