College fail to take their chances

2013-05-14 00:00

ONLY two hockey matches were played on the wet Saturday and both were in the capital. All three matches in Durban were cancelled.

It was surprsing that Glenwood cancelled hockey against Hilton, as they went ahead with some rugby matches.

Maritzburg College 1 Michaelhouse 1

College held the ascendency for large parts of this match, and Michaelhouse, as they have done in other games, fed on scraps to get them a draw.

College created numerous opportunities but could not capitalise when they reached the circle. A rare excursion by Michaelhouse into the College circle saw the ball passed to an unmarked J-L Clackworthy who made sure, striking the ball into the College goal, for the lead. Numerous penalty corners awarded to the home side and a number of clear-cut chances all went abegging so that the vistors went into the break ahead.

Despite not scoring, College stuck to their guns and midway through the half Tyson Dlungwana was quick to a ball saved from a penalty corner, to tap into the net to bring College level.

St Charles 0 St Albans 3

The Pretoria visitors, who have beaten Hilton and drawn with College, were quick to assert their dominance in the game.

St Charles were slow to get into the game, perhaps because in the back of their minds lay the knowledge that they had already beaten St Albans during the St Stithians Easter Festival.

When they did start playing, it was too late. St Albans held a 2-0 lead at half time after two well-structured field goals.
