MATCH REPORT 

RGHS U19A vs St Cyprians @ Hartleyvale – Monday 30 July 

In a very evenly contested match, the 1st Team played well under trying circumstances to draw this match 0-0. Player of the match was Caroline Schreiber (Gr 12) who kept RGHS in the game with her outstanding saves in goal. We had our opportunities to score, but were unable to convert our penalty corners. The team remained positive and pushed to the very end of the game where we nearly scored off the last movement of the match.
