Hockey: The Boland Success Story

IT is remarkable how a relatively small group of people in a geographic region can make such an “outsize” impact on the national scene.

After a somewhat shaky start to their 2016 season which saw them tasting defeat twice, Maritzburg College got into their traditional stride and started peeling off the wins and just did enough at the end to top the SA Schools Rankings for 2016.

Oranje Meisies once again end the season as the leading team in South Africa and few would argue with their status as the top team on the SA Schools Rankings.

Hockey: Drag-flick King Ferreira

IT looks like SA hockey has an exceptional talent in the making in Pretoria Boys High School striker Donovan Ferreira.

There is little change on the SA Schools Top 70 Rankings for this week as the trickle of results slowly are coming to an end.

Oranje Meisies crowned off their scarcely believable season with a win over Eunice to win the Bloemfontein League Final for the 5th year in a row and underline why they rest at the top of the SA Schools Rankings for 2016.

In what has fast become one of the premier events on the Schools Hockey calendar, Oranje Meisies once again hosted the cream of SA’s hockey teams in the FNB Private Wealth Super 12 Tournament.

The Oranje Meisie’s machine rolled on with yet another win over a strong Collegiate side which leaves them as the leading team on the SA Schools Girls Rankings for this week.

Pretoria Boys High turned back the clock to produce their early season form and gain a valuable victory over high-flying Maritzburg College to shake up the SA Schools Rankings late in the season.

A successful Brothers Cape Town Tournament by St Mary’s Waverley has allowed them to close the gap marginally on Oranje Meisies which augers well for a tight finish in this year’s SA Schools Hockey Rankings for Girls.

Maritzburg College continued their spectacular form when they outplayed Affies 3-0 and in so doing tighten their grip on the No.1 spot of the SA Schools Rankings for 2016.

The Spur Cape Town Hockey Festival formed the bulk of the results this match with some high quality hockey taking place amongst some of the top team in SA which included quality international opposition.

 Durban is gearing upfor this year’s annual Greenfields Elite Club Challenge that will be hosted at theRiverside Sports Centre in Durban North from Friday the 15th – 16th of July 2016. This is the only tournament in the history of South African hockey to offer the largest prize money to the winning team.

DSG make their first entry into the top three on this week’s SA Schools Rankings as Rustenburg makes room for them after their unexpected loss.

It has taken them the better half of the season but after an uncustomary poor start to the season, the SA hockey powerhouse Maritzburg College have finally reached the top of the SA Hockey Rankings for this week.

Jeppe are back in the top five on the SA Schools Top 70 Rankings for this week after a successful campaign which saw the Joburg team winning the Aitken Cup.

St Mary’s Waverley had a great chance to narrow the gap on Oranje Meisies, who are on a break, but struggled to put away St.Andrews who hung on for a 2-2 draw. The result keeps St.Mary’s in second spot on the SA Schools Rankings for this week.

All this week’s boys and girls results from the past week:

Oranje Meisies enjoyed a couple of wins last week to stretch their unbeaten season to a record 30 matches and remain firmly at the top of this week’s SA Schools Rankings for Girls.

There was a golden opportunity for Westville and Maritzburg College to snatch the top spot on this week’s SA Schools Hockey Rankings but when the dust had settled neither team were able to improve on their standing.

All this week’s boys and girls results from the past week:

Oranje Meisies regain the No.1 spot this week on the SA Schools Top 70 Rankings after a brace of high scoring victories.

The top ten teams all recorded victories during the past week’s matches which has resulted in a virtually unchanged group leading the SA Schools Top 70 Rankings for this week.
