Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol 7, No. 5 June 21, 1944
The six club teams have now been finalised and the consistent attendances have Justified the fielding of so great a number of teams in club competitions.
While little need be said of the Senior A team, the B's deserve special mention for their fine display against the A's last week. The A's were shown how a team can work together, and the B's did this very well. Captain Max Christie and Club-captain Arch. Ives played splendid games, and the forward line gave its best exhibition to date.
The 2A team has been very unfortunate, losing their last two games narrowly. The team is as yet a little over-inclined to slackening their effort after a lead has been established, but they should lose this tendency after another game or so.
Though the 2B team has not won many of its recent games, their play indicates a great improvement and they should strike a good patch soon.
3A includes many of the club's keener members. Noel Brown's regularity at practices is reaping its reward, and Gib. Bogle and Dennis Hartley turned out in spite of the much-anticipated Extrav. Reunion.
In the games 3B has played it has been defeated only by very narrow margins. The newer players, captained by capable Jerry Chapiro, have put up excellent showings against more experienced hockey players.
In spite of the scarcity of practice balls (thankfully offset to some extent by the Women's Club) practices have been very well attended. There is still room for any others who would like a run around on Thursday nights. Thanks are due to Brian Nash and Johnny Nichols, who have helped the committee out by taking many of the practices.
