1st Team

The 1st team hockey match against Kingswood was poised to be a close game after a draw in their match earlier in the year. Kingswood began the match with a solid defensive structure which St Andrew's struggled to break through, and the first quarter saw few goal scoring opportunities. As the game progressed, College pushed to find an opening and some good play led to a chance which forced an excellent save from the Kingswood goalkeeper. St Andrew's dominated possession but could not find a way through the Kingswood defense in the first half and the score was 0-0 at the break. Late in the third quarter, a well worked goal was clinically scored by Sibusiso Mxube after a superb passage of play down the right of the field. Kingswood stepped higher up the field in the last quarter, searching for an equalizer, but the resolute St Andrew's defense stood firm under the pressure. The single goal proved decisive as the match ended in a 1-0 victory to St Andrew's.
