Hockey: SA's Top 25 Hockey Rankings

Among the many matches that were played out over the past week it was perhaps the Wynberg v Rondebosch and Pretoria Boy’s High v Maritzburg College clashes that were the most eagerly anticipated.

 

saveMaritzburg College, who have literally reigned as the kings of SA hockey for decades are experiencing a slow start to their season and seemed unprepared for the Pretoria onslaught that greeted them.  Going 2-0 up at halftime thanks to a shot that found the net by L Strydom and an unstoppable drag flick by R Barreiro PBHS held all the aces and proceeded to shut out a frustrated College side in the second half who missed a plethora of chances. Another goal by  Barreiro handed the hosts a well deserved 3-0 victory over a College side that is yet to play to the form of years gone by.

Wynberg held onto their unbeaten run with a convincing 2-0 victory over Rondebosch who played well in the first half to keep the score 0-0 at the break. However Rob McKinley who is perhaps one of the finest goal keepers in the school boy hockey,  pulled off save after save and kept Wynberg in the hunt. Two quick goals by Wynberg in the second half knocked the wind out of the Rondebosch attack who struggled to mount any threatening attack in the final stages of the match.

These are the rankings as they stand at present and based on the results sent through by the teams.
