Women's Hockey

After five weeks of fine Saturdays the first postponement of games occurred on June 7. All games set down for that day were played last Saturday on heavy grounds. Most players do not seem to be as fit as they should be at this time of the season.

The Senior A team, after being surprised out of their lethargy by a goal scored by Y.W.C.A. after five minutes play, went to work with determination. Viv Rich, very much on her game, scored three goals, ably backed up by B. Young, who also contributed one and G. Simmers one. Lack of co-ordination between the halves and the forwards was offset to a great extent by the very efficient stickwork of M. Spiers, left full-back, who stopped many breakaways by the speedy opposition wing forwards. The game ended: Varsity 5. YWCA 1.

Of the Senior Reserve game much could be said. Enough that it was spoiled by poor refereeing and undue roughness. Varsity's only goal came from a melee in the circle, the goal being scored by combined effort. Better combination is now being shown by this team. Ever-ready 2. Varsity 1.
