Hockey Report 2014

The 2014 Hockey season was without any doubt the most successful year in the school’s history of the sport. Westville were able to field 13 Teams every weekend.

As a hockey fraternity, Westville won over 75% of their hockey matches against some of the biggest names in school boy hockey in South Africa including schools such as Kearsney, Northwood, SACS, Clifton, DHS, KES and Pretoria Boys to name just a few. Highlight of the season for the 1st lights.

The 1st Team had impressive wins against Pretoria Boys 2-1, DHS 6-1, Northwood 2-0, Clifton 4-0, Glenwood 4-0, KES (JHB) 8-1, SACS 6-0, St Stithians(JHB) 2-1 and St Benedicts (JHB) 8-1. This year saw a record amount of wins and goals for, 23 wins from 25 games with 102 goals scored, conceding only 21 goals against. Well done to Sharmin Naidoo, Craig Currin and Jonathan Basson for all their hard work that they put into the open age group, which paid dividends in the end as the First XI reached an all time high, NUMBER 1 Hockey Team in South Africa. Beating local rivals, College, Glenwood, Hilton and Kearsney who all placed in the Top 10 National rankings.

The U16A team was unbeaten in their domestic season having good wins against College 1-0, Hilton 3-0, KES 1-0, Northwood 3-1, Clifton 4-0 and DHS 6-0 as well as having brilliant wins at the annual Rondebosch festival against SACS 15-0 and Paul Roos 3-2. Congratulations to AGC and u16A head coach Ramon Rademeyer as well as the rest of the coaches involved for a very successful season throughout.

The U14A team had a successful hockey season. They came into the school as fresh new players and had a brand new coach to the school, Cameron Mackay who took up the challenge of introducing the boys to high school hockey. He did tremendously well with the team along with his assistant coach Tim Spence to develop the boys into great hockey players through lots of hard work on and off the turf. The u14A’s played 20 matches, won 15, lost 3 and drew 2. The team had good wins against Bishops 3-1,  Northwood 3-1, Kearsney 3-2 and St Stithians 3-1 to name just a few. Congrats to Cameron Mackay, Tim Spence and the other u14 coaches in doing a great job.
