MATCH REPORT: by Andi Bernstein
On Monday 14 August, our RGHS 1st team played against Malvern College, a visiting school from the UK.
“It was a great game played with sportsmanship and good spirit with RGHS winning 1-0. We definitely had the advantage with regards to ball possession and circle entries but could not convert our opportunities against a goal keeper that was on great form!
We looked really good going forward and were complimented by the visiting coach on our technical ability and basics in passing and receiving skills.
Courtney Wheeler (Gr 12) scored the winning goal towards the end of the first chukka, and since we had the majority of the possession, Malvern were not able to equalize”.
On Monday 14 August our U16A and B team combined to play against a touring team from the UK, Malvern College. Our girls had a very strong game winning 35-10.
On Tuesday 15 August RGHS played against Settlers at Settlers.
The results were as follows:
