WOODRIDGE Col­lege and Prepara­tory trav­elled to Gra­ham­stown last Satur­day to take part in the an­nual win­ter sports derby against Dioce­san School for Girls.

With 18 hockey and 15 net­ball fix­tures played from U10 through to U18 it was a very busy day at DSG. The day was a cold and win­tery af­fair, but thank­fully the rain held off long enough to get all the net­ball fix­tures played, with only the last cou­ple of hockey matches bat­tling through the el­e­ments.

On the re­sults front, DSG dom­i­nated the ma­jor­ity of the fix­tures, win­ning six of the eight se­nior hockey matches, with one match drawn.

How­ever, it was in the 1st team game where Woodridge came out well, as they se­cured a 1-0 vic­tory away from home against their more fan­cied op­po­nents. Once again for Woodridge, the bril­liance of SA U18 player and cap­tain, Edith Mo­likoe, shone through. She not only thwarted the many DSG at­tacks, but was also on hand to con­vert a penalty cor­ner with style mid­way through the first half, which proved to be the de­ci­sive blow. Woodridge con­tin­ued to re­pel all the DSG at­tacks in the sec­ond half and car­ried their team to a hard fought 1-0 vic­tory.

The net­ball was a sim­i­lar af­fair, with DSG com­ing out on top in the ma­jor­ity of the matches, win­ning all bar one of the seven matches played in the se­nior school fix­ture.

Again, it was the 1st team match which pro­vided the most ex­cite­ment. DSG went out to an early lead, how­ever Woodridge fought back and al­though at one stage were trail­ing by five goals, man­aged to se­cure a 16-16 score line by the final whis­tle to draw the match.

DSG host Her­schel from Cape Town this com­ing week­end, be­fore go­ing away to Kingsridge Girls in King Wil­liams Town on July 28. DSG will then host Queen­stown Girls High School on 4 Au­gust to fin­ish off their win­ter pro­gramme.
