Men's Hockey

Men's Hockey

The men's hockey team is strong in Wellington club circles and is vieing at the moment with Karon for the interclub championship. It was this experience, combined with the fitness and keenness of the team, which gave Victoria a second position behind Canterbury — a traditionally strong province in New Zealand hockey circles. In the mud and slush of Hobson Park the team obtained two well-earned victories, one over Auckland B 4-0 and in the afternoon a victory over Otago. Tuesday proved profitable and Auckland A was defeated. In meeting the national Australian universities team Victoria lost 2-1 in what was described as [unclear: B] "power" game.

It was on Wednesday that the Victoria team was soundly out-classed by Canterbury. By way of exoneration, the Canterbury side was practically of provincial standard.

The schedule was a tough one, Victoria played well and ended the tournament by placing three team members in the NZU team.
