PERHAPS the surprise of the Spar KZN tournament was how well the hard-working hockey team from Wartburg Kirchdorf School played in this year’s hockey challenge. Finishing fifth overall and improving one position from last year, the young team from Wartburg impressed on the turf.

In their first game they drew against Ballito’s Ashton International College with the score 0-0. Their next two games were against hockey giants St Anne’s College and Pietermaritzburg Girls’ High School. Going down 4-0 against Saints did not disappoint the girls, and they held Girls’ High to a 1-0 loss.

Learning from these two losses, the team then went on to beat Amanzimtoti High in their final pool game.

Going through to their first play-off, they met Grantleigh College from Richards Bay trouncing them 6-0 with goals by Michelle Engelbrecht, Kirsty Uhlmann, Liya Tyali, Captain Elke Engelbrecht, Erin Jarvie and Elona Engelbrecht.

This incredible win took them to the play-off for fifth and sixth where they met Matatiele’s King Edward High School. After half an hour of well played hockey, the scoreline was in favour of Wartburg Kirchdorf with Elke Engelbrecht ending her school playing hockey career slotting one in. - Sophie Thompson: The Elf.
