WGHS 1st Team vs ST CYPRIANS : 

SCORE: 2 – 2

The 1st hockey team played against St Cyprian’s this past Saturday at WGHS Astro. The Wynberg team knew from previous encounters that St Cyprians are a team with great spirit and determination.  During the first 10 minutes of the game Wynberg camped in St Cyps’ half of the field; we had numerous chances to score but were unable to capitalise on our shots at goals.

St Cyps managed to penetrate the Wynberg’s defence against the run of play and was awarded a short corner from which they scored their first goal. Within minutes St Cyps managed another break through which caught the Wynberg’s defence out of position and they were rewarded with a second goal. There were two one-on-one attempts at goals by St Cyps but they was unsuccessful, thanks to Valeshka Harku’s brilliant saves.  In the last minute of the 1st half Wynberg was awarded a short corner, where Berzilee Pipes deflected the ball into the back of the net.

During the second half of the game there were numerous attacking opportunities for both teams, but the defence managed to break down the run of play. Late in the second half of the game Wynberg was awarded a short corner and Jamie Southgate scored a cracker of a goal off a rebound from the keeper.  Overall it was an evenly matched game and our determination and fight was evident. In order for Wynberg to win games our players need to maintain their positional play.

Player of the match: Valeshka Harkhu and Cara Geere

Paula scored again during the second half of the match, aided by Kagiso Jantjies and some very persistent fielding by Emily Symmonds.
