Day 2 KES Hockey Festival Round Up

Tue, 22/04/2014 - 10:00

The second day of hockey at the KES Easter festival brought about huge crowds and great fixtures.

The day kicked off with a fixture between Trinityhouse High School and Queen’s College. A solid performance from Trinityhouse ensued as they had Queen’s under pressure, but Queen’s were able to hold them at bay.  Rondebosch Boys’ High School met a strong Hilton College in the second fixture leading at half time 3-0. Hilton took the game with a strong team performance to beat Rondebosch 4-1. 

Durban High School was looking to bounce back after the first day’s disappointments when they met St John’s College. Unfortunately, it was a one sided affair as St John’s beat DHS with a convincing 8-0 victory and a strong performance from Nick Elliott.

Seaford College pulled together a well fought 4-0 victory over Menlopark as the school from England continues to impress with a solid team performance. 

Probably the most exciting game of the day between Parktown and Queen’s. A nail biter at 1-1 for the majority of the second half, Queen’s scored a late goal to take the close game 2-1. M Stone and Winray Christoffels stood out with good performances over the 2 days.  

Rondebosch met KES in their second fixture of the day. KES played well leading 1-0 at half time, but conceding two goals in the second half cost KES the fixture 2-1 as Rondebosch made up for their earlier blemish. T. Walbrugh shone with yet another good game.  

In their second game Trinintyhouse played Northwood. Not much could separate the sides as it stayed 0-0 at half time and finished in a one all draw.  Hilton continued their good form as they met an out of sorts Affies. At half time it was close 1-1, but Hilton ran away with it in the second 25 minutes, to win 3-1.

It was a well supported day leading into a much anticipated third day of hockey.
