Hockey Club

The second round of the Inter-Club Competitions has now been commenced. At the end of the first round our Senior B (A) team was in the comfortable position of being one point behind the leading team in the competition with one match to play. The team was drawn to meet its Waterloo in the first match of the second round, and after a fine display of hockey, fought its way to the top of the competition, beating the leading team, Karori, by five goals to four. The splendid play of the forwards was a feature of the game.

An improvement in play and better results are looked for from the third grade teams during this round. Now that the beginners have gained a little experience they will be able to face their opponents with more confidence.

A regrettable feature of this year's hockey is the number of casualties sustained by the club, especially in the Senior teams. This results in the weakening of all the teams in the club.

The results of the Senior A team's matches to date are as follows:

First Round:

  • v. Wesley—won, 2—1. Goals scored by Paul and Simpson.
  • v. Y.M.C.A.—won, 4—1.
  • v. Karori—lost, 1—3. The goal was scored by Lewis.
  • v. Wellington—drew, 2—2. v. Hutt—lost, 2—3.
  • Second Round: v. Wesley—lost, 2—4.
  • v. Y.M.C.A.—won, 3—1. Simpson 2, Lewis 1.
  • v. Karori—drew, 2 all.
  • v. Wellington—lost, 0—4.
  • v. Hutt—lost, 2—3.
