DSG host fierce U14 hockey

Grocott's Mail - - SPORT - By CHANEEZ SIAS

The Diose­can School for Girls (DSG) hosted the U14 Girls hockey tour­na­ment over the 11-13 Au­gust week­end. By the cold and windy Sun­day morn­ing, only four teams had sur­vived the matches to take part in the fi­nals of the tour­na­ment.

No lo­cal teams were among the top four to progress to the fi­nal stages of the tour­na­ment.

The four teams who had made it to this year’s fi­nals were York High School, Paarl Hoërskool, Col­le­giate Girls’ High and Spring­field High. York played Paarl and were fight­ing hard for 3rd place in Pool A.

The teams played 20 min­utes a side and were al­lowed a max­i­mum of eight min­utes ded­i­cated to a quick warm up ses­sion on the turf.

Col­le­giate walked away with sev­eral medals and the win­ning tro­phy, be­cause of 21 goals scored and only two con­ceded. Spring­field was sec­ond in the tour­na­ment with eight goals and three against. The tour­na­ment was a huge suc­cess and DSG or­gan­iser and head of sport, Chris Hib­bert said he hopes to in­vite more schools to par­tic­i­pate in the tour­na­ment next year.
