Salient. Victoria University Student Newspaper. Volume. 33, Number 13. 1970



One win and one draw in six games is not a very impressive record to bring back from any tournament, but this is what Vic achieved—and everyone in the team appeared happy. Perhaps they were not pleased with the results—just pleased with Tournament itself.

On the first day Vic were unfortunate to lose 0-1 in the morning to Massey (who went on to win the Men's Hockey section of Tournament) then in the afternoon drew 2-2 (after missing three penalty strokes) with Otago, who virtually were the Otago provincial team. On Tuesday the effects of Cabaret hit Vic rather hard and we lost to Auckland 2-5 and Waikato 2-3 (a minor upset). After the hockey dinner—a very merry occasion—we beat Lincoln 4-3 and lost to Canterbury 0-6.

Generally the defence and cover defence for Victoria were good—except against Canterbury and, the first half against Auckland. In the towards, Toon Borren made some penetrating runs and was usually ably supported by Doug Hill. The team should have a special thank-you to Geoff Kirkham, the team captain, who always worked hard and sweated most ' of that grog out!

Victoria had no representatives in the N.Z.U team which drew 2-2 with Manawatu on Thursday afternoon.
