1st Team
The First Team girls played their first official school league match on 15 April 2016 against old rivals, Rustenburg.
From the start, Wynberg put up a good performance attacking for most of the first quarter until a lapse in judgement and lack of marking players allowed Rustenburg to slot in an early goal.
This was a setback but the Wynberg girls did not give up. After the goal, the Wynberg goals attacked as much as they could however there were turnovers from both sides in all areas of the field.
The girls worked hard at keeping them out of our attacking D for most of the game, everyone giving 110%. They managed to get some short corners which Wynberg defence kept out quite well with in-the-air saves being made by goalkeeper, Chelsea van der Berg, allowing the girls to stay in the game.
Wynberg has some good opportunities but could not finish, unfortunately. Namely one opportunity where the ball was sent in with good interplay between Aaliyah Dollie and Aaminah Domingo but the ball just went wide of the post.
It was a well-fought game by all girls and the final score was 1-0. Well done girls, it’s looking better with each practice and they’re sure to pull a win out against Bellville on Friday.
U16A Team
On 15 April, the u16A hockey team played against Rustenburg. The girls produced a hard fought effort. The first half was a rough start but the girls corrected their mistakes during the second half. Unfortunately the end result was 2-0 to Rustenburg. Player of the match was awarded to Hajira Lockhat
3rd Team
On the 16th April,  Wynberg Girls’ High School 3rd team played a match against Rustenberg Girls’ 3rd team and unfortunately lost 3-0. For our first match we played fairly well, we supported each other and remained positive throughout the game. We need to work on our communication skills and need to learn to go for the ball and not be afraid. Our first match was played well and we look forward to the rest of the season.
