The Spike or Victoria University College Review 1935

Women's Hockey Club

Women's Hockey Club

As we have played only five Association matches this season, it is difficult to comment adequately on the team's form, as we have distinct possibilities of justifying the Executive's expenditure before the season closes.

Two teams were entered in the Association Competition, but after playing one match we were forced to withdraw the Junior team, owing to a severe shortage of players. The Senior team, though as yet not brilliantly successful, is rapidly improving.

The team entered in the seven-a-side tournament at Karori Park, after four strenuous games, succeeded in winning the section, but in the following match was defeated by Paraparaumu by 1 goal to nil.

To the Annual University Tournament, held at Christchurch on June 20th-22nd, we sent a strong team, which opened activities by defeating Auckland by 8 to nil. Our best match was the one against Canterbury (the winners of the Tournament), who defeated us by one goal after a well-fought match. When playing Otago, two hours later, we were defeated by 4 goals to 1, having lost any dash we might have possessed earlier in the day. The Tournament was a marked success, Victoria College being awarded three N.Z.U, Hockey Blues, the winners of which—A. Harding, M. Nelligan and J. Grainger—we heartily congratulate.

The Club takes this opportunity of thanking Mr. Foden for the able assistance he has given as Club Coach.
