Soccer

On Saturday, 17 August, the RGHS soccer team excitedly ran onto the field to play their second match this year against Rhenish. The girls were excited to play as they were able to show all the skills and tricks that they had learnt from several months of practice. Whilst watching the matches, it was evident that the girls were prepared and determined to give it their all. Hannah Hector, a Junior B player, described the match as “an opportunity to showcase our talent and play together as a team”, which was truly evident as they played well and won their match 1-0. – Zipho Tom

The second match between the RGHS Junior A team and the Rhenish A team was another delightful encounter of skills taught by Coach Lungi. Umpire Nemo did an excellent job to ensure that the game was played fairly and with a sense of professionalism. Congratulations to all involved. The score was 0-2, this time in favour of Rhenish.
