WGHS 2nd XI Hockey team (pictured top) played their first practice game against Carmel 1st XI on Thursday 11 June. It was exciting for the girls to get back on the turf after a long break due to Covid-19. The team went down 1-0 in the first 3rd but did not put their heads down, restructured and took the win 2-1 with goals from Danni Hall and Zara Hooks. With seven new players, there is rebuilding of the team – but it was a good start to the season. We are looking forward to playing in the Grade 1 North Harbour competition alongside our 1st XI commencing this week!
Our 1st XI Hockey team (pictured below) finished off the pre-season with a resounding 4-0 victory against intercity rivals Baradene. Early goals from Bree Speck and Holly Chivers put us on the front foot, before further goals from Rachel Bottcher and a 2nd for Holly Chivers rounded out a convincing win. We started our defence of the Harbour competition this week against St Mary’s 2nd XI.
