Successful hockey weekend for Hilton, Kearsney and Michaelhouse

2013-05-07 00:00

THE hockey pitches were unusually quiet, with just one match in KZN on Saturday and two in Johannesburg.

Hilton 3 St Charles 1

This is the second game in which Hilton have been dominant but struggled to put the ball into the net. Last week they lost to Michaelhouse, but here three goals were scored in the first half, which was enough to bag the win.

Field goals by Jarred Edy, Campbell Caley and Mudiwa Llobell put Hilton 3-0 ahead at the break, and despite a dominant second period, they failed to add to their tally.

St Charles created more chances, but they could not convert the two penalty corners they were awarded, although Brent Kennedy did manage to pull one goal back.

Kearsney 6 Thomas More 2

Michaelhouse were away at a festival at St Albans, so Kearsney picked up a game against Thomas More on Friday afternoon. Thomas More put up a plucky performance and certainly had their moments.

Kearsney’s defence was put under pressure and Thomas More took the lead after some sustained pressure in the Kearsney circle.

Kearsney bounced back to level and soon afterwards took the lead through a field goal scored by Ruben van Aswegen.

A “never say die” attitude kept Thomas More in the game and the match flowed back and forth with both sides making many basic errors in open play. Kearsney scored several more goals, but Thomas More were doing all the attacking in the last quarter and were rewarded with a second goal.

Michaelhouse had a successful festival at St Albans where they won four of their five games with a loss against hosts St Albans.

Results: Michaelhouse 5-1 St Georges, 4-1 Penryn, 1-0 St Andrews (Bloem), 0-1 St Albans, 1-0 St Stithians.

Other Results: KES 0 Westville 2; DHS 0 Parktown 4; Hilton 2nds 4 Howick 2; Hillcrest 2 Port Shepstone 4; Thomas More 0 Westville 1.
