Hockey 1 16 160wThe 1st XI hockey team hosted Glenalmond College. It was an evenly contested match with both sides creating chances. St George's broke the deadlock late on in the first half with Olivia (Lower 6) scoring the goal. Glenalmond College came out strong in the second half and St George's defended well, especially penalty corners. The girls held onto the slender lead for the first victory of the season.

In September, our Lower 4 C and D hockey teams had games against Fettes College. The Lower 4 C team got their game off to a good start and looked threatening on the attack, however Fettes' also had a number of chances early on, putting our defence under pressure. It was not long before Fettes College attacking pressure gave them a number of chances at goal and they made no mistake in taking those chances. The score line could have been very different but luckily our goal keeper, Lottie made a number of quality saves. We had a few chances and lots of good build up play but could not seem to find the net. The score ended at 3-0 to Fettes College.

The Lower 4 D team dominated their match for most of the game showing real grit and determination in attack. The girls got off to a good start, keeping possession of the ball and playing some nice passing hockey. Towards the end of the first half Lucia managed to find space at the edge of the circle and put a shot towards target, evading the goalkeeper and putting St George’s ahead of the game going into half time. The second half was similar to that of the first, however, Fettes College managed to get a few good breaks towards our goal, but our defence cleared the danger. Towards the end of the game there was a goal mouth scramble that could have seen either team win the ball but it was again Lucia who managed to slot the ball into the goal and put St George’s 2-0 up at the end of the game.

On Saturday, the Primary 6 and Removes enjoyed competitive matches against George Watson's College. The teams are beginning to hold their shape and utilise the right hand side of the pitch. They worked well together and were rewarded with some good team goals. Everyone is working hard at club and it pleasing to see the progress they are making in Saturday matches.
