The Saint Andrew’s, Bloemfontein, under-16 A hockey team met Grey College under-16 A on the Saint Michael’s Astro on Monday evening.
Saints dominated large parts of the game, but their finishing was off key and Grey came away with a 1-0 win.
The Saint Andrew’s team will look back on the match and see it as a missed opportunity. In their previous match against
Saint John’s, they moved the ball with pace around the field, but against Grey they were not as sharp.
Their penalty corner routine, which was effective against Saint John’s, was inaccurate, with only two shots being produced from eight corners.
No doubt, the players came away from the game knowing they were not at their best. But, lesson learned and on to better things!
