Graaff-Reinet Advertiser - - Graaff-reinet -

GRAAFF-REI­NET — O­ver the past few weeks, U­ni­on High S­chool has been hos­ting an in­ter­nal 5-a-si­de hoc­key tour­na­ment.

Te­ams we­re ma­de up of gi­rls and boys, te­a­chers and le­ar­ners, SA play­ers and no­vi­ces, but at the end of the day, fun was the na­me of the ga­me!

The fi­nal of the tour­na­ment took pla­ce last week be­t­ween the Du­ra­cell te­am and the T­hun­der­bi­rds.

It was a ten­se ma­tch, with the Du­ra­cell te­am sco­ring first, fol­lo­wed by a quick go­al from the T­hun­der­bi­rds. And that was the run of the ga­me, with Du­ra­cell le­a­ding by one go­al for most of the ma­tch.

Playing 15 mi­nu­tes a si­de, and with 2 mi­nu­tes to go, T­hun­der­bi­rds we­re le­a­ding by two go­als. Ho­we­ver, this did not stop the Du­ra­cell te­am sco­ring a­not­her 2 quick go­als, fi­nis­hing the ma­tch in a 10 all draw.

This re­sul­ted in a pen­al­ty shoot-out be­t­ween the two te­ams, which en­ded with Du­ra­cell win­ning on a techni­cal go­al.

This was a fun-fil­led tour­na­ment, with e­very play­er gi­ving it their all to get the ball in­to the go­al box. The com­pe­ti­ti­on was fier­ce, and the boys cer­tain­ly did not stand back to let the gi­rls in.

Con­g­ra­tu­la­ti­ons Du­ra­cell for win­ning this one – you will cer­tain­ly be chal­len­ged a­gain next y­e­ar! Con­g­ra­tu­la­ti­ons to the Du­ra­cell Te­am, Mat­thew Broeks­ma, Matt Har­pur (Cap­tain), Mi­ce­la Loock, Kel­sey Min­naar, Jen­na M­cnaug­h­ton, Lu­ke M­cnaug­h­ton, Kaydn Re­tief and Ja­de S­hi­res, for win­ning the Su­per 5 Hoc­key Tour­na­ment.
