CONTINUING their dominance in the Spar KZN School Girls’ Hockey Challenge, Wartburg Kirchdorf, for the fourth time, cleaned up at this year’s Umvoti, uThukela and Umzinyathi Regional at Deutsche Schule Hermannsburg on Saturday, May 14.

Led by star player Captain Elke Engelbrecht, the in-form team scored an impressive 18 goals from six games. They met Ladysmith Hih School in the finals after a round robin tournament. The score was 0-0 at half time with both teams maintaining a 50% possession. After a quick change over, Wartburg’s Erin Jarvie was camped out on the left upright and with a quick reaction knocked the ball in to score the team’s first goal. Wartburg cemented their win when Vanessa Mkhize bagged the team’s second goal resulting in their 2-0 victory.

“It was great to have been at Hermannsburg again for this regional, especially as they celebrate their 160 anniversary, as the oldest private school in KZN,” said Les Galloway, tournament director..

The Most Promising Umpire was Walter Moore representing Ladysmith High School.
