MATCH REPORT

U19A

Opposition: REDDAM @ REDDAM, Constantia
The first team started the local season with a resounding win against Reddam 5-0.

RGHS dominated play from start to finish and never let Reddam settle into the game. We maintained possession and pushed forward to put the Reddam defense under pressure. This resulted in the awarding of penalty corners. RGHS had 3 penalty corners during the match (without reply), and scored from all three! (first time in RGHS hockey history!!)

Goals scorers: Gemma Watermeyer (2); Sharna Naidoo, Courtney Wheeler and Rebecca Bysche.

CROSS COUNTRY

There was a very large turnout of Rustenburg girls at the first league Cross Country race of the season, hosted by Rondebosch Boys. Unfortunately no finishing positions were given, nor times, so we have no results. However, every Rustybug that started her race, finished. Well done to all our runners.
