KEHS first hockey shines in Cape Town

TWO weeks ago, over the weekend, King Edward High first girls hockey team embarked on a 16-hour bus ride to DF Malan High in Bellville to participate in a training tournament. This tournament was attended by 24 schools from across the country, by invitation only. Here, KEHS players rubbed shoulders with some of the best hockey players and coaches in South Africa.

Eight games were played, 12 goals scored and only three goals were conceded. KEHS won 2-0 against Brandwacht, won 3-1 against Curro Durbanville, won 2-0 against Merensky, and won 4-0 against Langenhoven, drew 0-0 against DF Malan’s premier peam, drew 0-0 against Stellenberg, drew 1-1 against Pinelands and lost 0-1 against Outeniqua.

Three King Edward pupils were selected to the tournament dream teams - Aphelele Nongenga (U18), Thato Nthoba (U18), and Lukhona Ndumdum (U16).

Thank you to all involved for making the trip possible, especially Dr Duminy (coach), Mrs Du Randt (team manager) and Kevin Young (bus driver).

KEHS at Voortrekker Sports Festival­

On Saturday, March 25, King Edward’s first hockey, netball and rugby teams travelled to Pietermaritzburg to participate in the Voortrekker High School Sports Festival.

The first hockey team won all their matches in cold and wet conditions. Their last match was in the final against Wartburg, which KEHS won 2-0, thus taking top honours in the festival. Goal difference – 22 for and 1 against.

The first rugby team played against Greytown High. It was clear from the start that Greytown had a bigger pack of forwards, resulting in a 10-0 lead for Greytown in the first 10 minutes. KEHS also scored a try in the first half, closing the lead to 10-5 at half time. In the second half Greytown scored another 10 unanswered points. Well done to Greytown who deserved their 25-5 victory.

The U16 KEHS team played against Empangeni High and beat them 20-5. The future of rugby at King Edward looks strong indeed.

The KEHS netball team played four matches. Although they lost their games, the differences in scores were small and much experience was gained.
