Feedback on Founders Hockey Festival

Good day Wally
Teams that participated were: S A C S, Kearsney College, Paul Roos, Dale College, Affies, Parktown Boys High, Queens College, Rondebosch Boys High, Northwood, and College.

Five teams arrived on Friday evening and the other teams arrived on Saturday Morning. Teams from S A C S Paul Roos and Rondebosch were met at airport and were transported in Luxury bus to Potchefstroom. On arrival these teams were shuttled by two smaller busses to and from venues as they wished.

All matches were played on the N W University Astros accept the last day which took place on Girls High Astro

The tournament was a wonderful showcase of what College is about with our new facilities at Ackerman receiving a lot of praise. Other feedback from S A CS AND Kearsney College Via correspondence received confirmed that the tournament as a whole was a great success.

On the first day College played against Kearsney arguably one of the top three teams at the tournament and our boys underperformed ( nerves ) and were beaten 7 – 0

The Rest of the results were as follows : vs S A C S lost 0 – 5 , vs Northwood lost 0 – 3  vs Queens lost 1 – 2   vs Affies lost 0 – 1 Affies scored in the last minute, vs Parktown  won 1 – 0

Our boy’s performances, sportsmanship on and off the field was excellent against some of top schools in Hockey.
