1st Team Hockey Report

After a 2 all draw at a festival earlier in the season, the 1st XI hockey match against Queens was always going to be a close game. Both teams started the game well in what was a very tactical first half, but College gained the upper hand on the stroke of half time by scoring a well-executed penalty corner. The second half was dominated by St Andrews through good defensive structure and a fast-paced counterattack was scored by Sibusiso Mxube to secure a well-deserved 2-0 victory.

Thank you to all the boys and staff who endured the cold weather to support the hockey on Friday afternoon. The support and cheerleading was exceptional as has been the case the entire season.
