KZN school hockey match report Michaelhouse vs St Charles

It’s a Rebeck-Christodoulou two-three

With half-term a day away, the postponed St Charles College first hockey team Michaelhouse fixture took place yesterday – and it turned into a 7-goal fest.

Martin Ashworth feature image: SA age-group rated striker and penalty corner drag-flicker Ben Rebeck is increasing his goal tally in 2019 and another 4-goal-1-match Ben10 performance like this one vs Hilton last year appears to be just a matter of time. Ben, who wears the number 10 shirt, hence his hockey nickname, got a brace in the first chukka at St Charles yesterday.

Michaelhouse were good to start, captain Ben Rebeck influential from the outset in his centre striker berth and the visitors’ press worked well, turned over a lot of ball and the Men of House took their chances.

A pair of Ben Rebeck 2 penalty corner drag-flicks and a brace of Michael Christodoulou field goals were offset by a Jason Login penalty corner goal to leave the half-time scores

Here’s a look from the Michaelhouse perspective on the recent Saturday hockey vs Northwood in Durban North.

“A motivated Northwood capitalised on their home turf, drawing 3 and winning 10 fixtures.

“Despite creating a few great scoring opportunities in the first quarter, Michaelhouse’s firsts found themselves 2-0 down by the end of the first stanza.

“This pattern continued in the second quarter as Northwood took advantage of chances in the circle and were 5-0 up at the half-time whistle.

“A resurgent Michaelhouse netted 3 goals in the second half but Northwood’s strong finishing had wreaked enough havoc to ensure the win in a high scoring game which finished 7-3 in favour of the Knights.”
