senior inter-house hockey

BY Candice Rossouw

The Inter-House hockey was held on 19 September between Eleanor, Elizabeth and Elton. The competition was tough as various hockey players ranging from First Team players to U/16 and U/14 players played against each other in support of their respective houses.
The event began with Elizabeth playing against Elton. The match was exhilarating and Elton had many close calls. However, Elizabeth triumphed in the end by scoring three goals two of which was scored by Jamie Kayser and Elton scored one goal which was by Chaneal Labercensie.
The second match was where Eleanor and Elizabeth went head to head. Although, the girls were exhausted, they persevered and played together as teams, displaying the unity that we have at Riebeek. Elizabeth won the match with a goal scored by Jamie Kayser.
The final match was played between Eleanor and Elton. This turned out to be a heated one as both teams tried to gain the upper hand in the match. However, in the end, both teams drew with both scoring one goal. The goal scorer for Elizabeth was Aphiwe Ngona and the goal scorer for Elton was Sarah McFarlane.
Although the matches were exhilarating, we cannot forget about the exuberant crowd that accompanied the event! The girls encouraged the players and kept the event alive with their joyful glee. We could not have asked for a better turnout of events. A huge thank you goes to the hockey players for supporting their houses and giving it their best efforts; Miss Potgieter, Mrs Kruger and Mr Seale for being the dutiful referees; the First Aid team for assisting so immaculately and dutifully in making sure that the injured players are cared for; the girls for watching and encouraging their peers; the teachers in attendance. We also wish the injured hockey players a speedy recovery.

3rd: Eleanor                      2nd: Elton                                             1st: Elizabeth
