Overview Sporting Achievements

During the Wildeklawer Festival, College’s premier rugby squads faced off against formidable opponents from across the nation. Meanwhile, the remaining rugby teams went head-to-head with Howick and St Charles. On Friday, College’s hockey teams engaged in a complete series of matches against the Saints, clinching an impressive 13 victories out of 16 encounters, with two draws and only one defeat

The 1st soccer team also headed to Wildeklawer where they were successful in reaching the top 6. There was also plenty of excellent canoeing and cycling action.

Hockey

College’s hockey teams took on the Saints for a full round of games ending with the 1st XI teams meeting on Pape’s under lights on Friday evening.

1st XI match report (Mr Kyle Emerson, 1st XI coach)

St Charles visited Pape’s on a Friday night, with a late push back, and another match under lights was enjoyed by the spectators. The first quarter saw College dominate possession and territory as St Charles soaked up lots of pressure and sat deep in their half. College created a few early chances and penalty corners which were well run down by the first wave from St Charles. Unable to get a shot on target until the 6th minute, but it was this chance that allowed College to take the lead. Kadin Jenkins found Banele Dlamini in the circle whose backhand shot was saved by the goalkeeper, but the ball bounced up into the path of Julian Konigkramer who calmly put the ball into the goal.

College accumulated circle entries but couldn’t find their second goal until a good build up allowed Siwa Sithembu to enter the circle on the right side and push the ball to far post. He was looking for a teammate, but it somehow trickled past everyone and into the bottom corner.

In the second half, St Charles were more organised in defence and didn’t allow College to enter their circle as easily. The best chance of the half came in the 3rd quarter when Dlamini turned over the captain and centre back of St Charles on the halfway. He ran the length of the field and pulled the ball passed the goalkeeper to shoot and was slid in the tackle which earned the team a stroke. The goalkeeper made up for his mistake and made a good diving save to keep the score at 2-0.

The rest of the game was quite messy, with many unforced errors and less structured play. St Charles managed to get a goal with eight minutes left in the game, after a turnover deep in the half saw a striker run the length of the field on the outside, and after a scramble in the 9-yard area, the

St Charles striker struck the ball in. It created a nervy finish, but College never felt like the result was in doubt.

College were not effective enough at keeping possession in the second half to build momentum and create enough meaningful opportunities to put the game out of reach of St Charles. Credit to St Charles for playing with an intensity and an ability to deny the chances which College did create. The final score was 2-1 to College.
