The Women's Hockey Team has improved a great deal since the beginning of the season. Although one short on Saturday, the girls fought hard, to be beaten only 5—4. The forwards are showing better combination and attack so that the game was not as defensive as usual. The left wing is considerably strengthened by the inclusion of Lorna Metekingi, a fast player with tricky stick-work. Dorothy Winpenny, as left Inner, played a good fast game combining well with her wing.
High praise must be given to Mary Frankish who came from the forward line to play her first game in goal. But for her hardhitting and sound tackling the score would have been higher.
The halves and backs were tackling better than usual though most of them still need practice in hardhitting. The result, however, was most encouraging. It is a pity that there are but two more matches before the end of the season.
