Union High School hosted Gill College’s 1st and 2nd hockey teams on Saturday, 13 July, in what proved to be a goal festival for the Union girls.
The 2nd team cruised to an 8 – 0 victory.
The 1st team girls then took to the turf with high expectations and an eagerness to showcase their goal-scoring abilities.
They certainly didn’t disappoint…Gill opted to play a match of 4 quarters which seemed to suit the Union girls’ style of play and saw the 1st quarter provide 4 brilliantly worked goals in favour of Union.
Union then continued to dominate the match with some slick and accurate passing and great finishing in the goal area. Three goals were scored in the 2nd quarter, 6 in the 3rd and 4 in the last quarter.
The final score stood at 17 – 0 in Union’s favour.
The Union girls put up a good performance overall and positive signs are showing ahead of some tough fixtures to come.
Union’s goals were scored by Micela Loock (7), Jenna McNaughton (3), Henzé Japhta (4), Laetitia Theron (1), Chelsea Theron (1) and Jade Shires (1).
