Kearsney 1sts hockey tick the boxes at Glenwood

​THE Kearsney College first hockey team’s halves, midfielders and strikers linked effectively to fashion a 5-0 win over home side Glenwood at the 3-Schools Astro on Friday evening, 20 April 2018.

 The success of the 3 lines made for a healthy slice of the possession on offer – and with it came overall control. Kearsney captain Guy Morgan orchestrated proceedings from the back along with Hayden de Kock and Chase Kelly.

The midfield impetus came in the main from Liam Maguire while Kearsney’s player of the match, front man Steven Conway, capitalised with a brace of field goals to go with those of Gavin Shelly and Maguire. Morgan also made an entry on the scoresheet with a drag-flick at penalty corner time.

That the entire Kearsney team stepped up to the mark made for a gratifying performance by coach Sihle Ntuli and Wayne Marsden’s lads.
