Women's Hockey

Women's Hockey.

The Varsity team is suffering from a holiday complex-a different team for every match. Accordingly combination is weak and lack of training at the beginning of the season is also taking its toll.

On Saturday, in T.O.G., the team encountered a very scientific set of players, and what with commeneing two short and having no centre-forward till half-time, the result was very encouraging. It was Varsity's best game to date.

The team has that common fault of women's hockey, the halves' positional play is weak. They evidently prefer to hang back in lingering admiration of their attacking forwards.

Notes on the Players:—

A. Hunter.—A dependable winger who centres well.

N. Goldsbury.—A right inner with good combination and stick-work

M. Nelligan.—Must speed up her shots. The team needs a snappy goal-getter.

G. Kean.—Shows dash on occasons and is improving.

M. Johnstone.—New to the left wing and must learn to centre sooner. We know it's hard.

N. Bayfield.—A dependable right half.

C. Robertson.—Must watch positional play and back up her forwards.

B. Ball.—Keep your position Beris.

E. Chatfield and J. Bacon, fullbacks, are hard workers, but must learn to support the team on attack.

H. Maysmor.—Don't trust your stick too much Helen. Kick more.
