Women's Hockey Club

Women's Hockey Club

The women's Hockey Club is having a more suc-cessful season than it has known for many years. This is due mainly to the good support rendered by the players on the occasions when we have been unable to field full teams, and their zeal in the face of many set-backs.

The Junior B team, which comprises mainly be-ginners, has won three, drawn one, and lost two games. This is a very creditable effort, since the team has frequently played short or with emergencies, and has also been particularly unfortunate in losing its captain through sickness. The Junior A team registered its first win last Saturday. This team also has had bad luck in losing two half-backs and one forward for part of the season. The seniors have won three, drawn one, and lost four matches. They should do better in the next round, as their combination is improving greatly.

A seven-a-side tournament is being held on Saturday, 25th July, when four teams, two senior and two junior, are being entered.

The main weakness throughout the teams is slowness in getting rid of the ball. Time and practice will, however, remedy this. Even if we are not winning championships, at least the enthusiasm shown, particularly in the Junior B team, promises well for the future of women's hockey at Victoria.?
