CURRENT SPORT NEWS

HOCKEY:

Match report by Andi Bernstein – 1st Team coach.

‘The 1st team played an outstanding match against Fairmont where we had more possession and were very unlucky not to win. We attacked down both sides of the field and scored first through a well hit penalty corner from Erin Coetzee. Fairmont came back strongly and scored two quick goals from penalty corners. RGHS stayed positive and scored twice in the second chukka to lead 3-2 with both goals scored by Kelly Johnson from penalty corners. Fairmont capitalised on a defensive error to equalise and it stayed 3-3 until the last five minutes when they managed to score again.

I am very proud of this team and how they stepped up to play one of their best games this season.”
