Two Championships in Sight

Two Championships in Sight

Last Saturday the Men's Hockey Club was very successful, winning two games and making a draw of the third. The first eleven defeated Wellington College 3-2 in a very hard-fought game. Ivor Ting was again the strength of the forward line, though the College boys kept him well marked. George Rae at left-inside played a fine game besides scoring one goal. The others came from John Nichols at vight-in-side. The Wellington College forwards kept the Varsity backs on their toes the whole game and Ken Kiddle and Roy Thornton were at times very hard pressed. The halves have been re-arranged with Graham Speight centre-half, Trigger Gunn right-half, and Jack Barr, who has been playing consistently good hockey, at left-half. The first eleven has been beaten only once this season and has an excellent chance of winning the senior competition.

The second eleven had a hard-fought match with Training College and emerged victors by 2-1. Both goals were scored by Norm. Towns, who is a very handy player in the circle. Roy Drmond at centre-forward was rather alow on his feet and lost one or two good opportunities. Gib. Bogle, who played a good game, 1B improving vapidly, though he has still a lot to master in the difficult position of left wing. The halves played their best game yet, and Bill Oaten captained the team well besides playing a fine game himself, though he Is still too Blow in taking the free hits, a fault from which Graham Mills also suffers.

The thirds drew l-all with Technical College, MacAlcock saving the day for them by netting from a penalty corner. This ream has become rather overconfident "and If they are not careful will spoil their chance of winning the championship of the third grade. At present they are sharing the lead with one other team.
