Tournament Hockey Reveals Lack of Fitness

Tournament Hockey Reveals Lack of Fitness

Winter Tournament is over and as far as hockey is concerned, both men's and women's, we have had it. Will we ever learn that hockey is a game that requires practice and personal fitness? A study of the scores given below will prove the inconsistency of the play of our teams.

Let's deal with the ladies. I am sure we have many better players in the B team than either appeared in the A team list or attended tournament.

Here are the results:
  • Drew with Otago, 5-5.
  • Lost to Otago B, 5-3.
  • Lost to Canterbury, 7-nil.
  • Lost to Auckland, 4-3.
  • Drew with Massey, 4-4.
In the men's team these are the results:—
  • v. Otago B—win, 8-0.
  • v. Massey—win, 12-2.
  • v. AUC—loss, 3-5.
  • v. CUC—loss, 2-6.
  • v. Otago A—loss, 1-3.
