Match report by Andi Bernstein – 1st Team coach:

“In a match played against Wynberg Girls’ High in torrential rain, but with a great spirit, RGHS came out victors with a 2-0 win!

With the score at 0-0 at half time, the girls stepped up a gear and we scored both goals in the third chukka. The first goal came from a penalty corner and was scored by Gemma Watermeyer, whilst the second goal was a great field-goal from a reverse stick shot from Kelly Johnson.

This win really resulted in the team being very positive and backing each other in every aspect of the game. This sets us up for a nice competitive match against St Cyprians on Friday. Both Azrah Dick and Pauline Premier who helped out from the U16A team settled quickly into the team and played very well.”
