Women's Hockey

Women's Hockey

Senior A.—Yea, V.U.C. now has a senior A hockey team and we hope she will be proud of it. At the end of the first round of matches the teams were regarded; we were privileged in being placed alongside teams such as C.O.G. and Hutt United In the senior A grade. So far we have not proved our worth. In the match against St. Joseph's we lost 2-1, and against P.T.O.G. last Saturday 4-1, Perhaps the score, particularly in the latter game, was not a very true indication of the standard of play, but until our forwards can learn to smack that ball about when they get in the circle we can never hope to beat these stronger teams. However, the team deserves some praise for its promotion and for the vast improvement it is showing In its game.

Junior.—Well, and would you believe it!! The team has been doing exceptionally well considering the limited experience of most of its members. Last week they again accomplished the unexpected by cleaning up Atheltic, the top team of the grade, by 4-1, having already beaten them by 1-0 in the first round. This puts V.U.C. very near the top of the ladder. Good work, juniors, but keep it up.

Intermediate.—And here lies the weak spot in the club—not weak because of any of its members, but weak because it hasn't enough members. We want more players. It seems such a waste of the enthusiasm and talent shown by some of our beginners to have to play the team short one week and even worse, scratch it the next. The club has invested in a new stick for the use of anyone unable to procure her own, so don't make this an excuse.

Make friends, keep fit, and have fun. Play Hockey.
