Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 7, No. 7 July 26, 1944
During the last two weeks, on account of the unsettled weather, there has been practically no hockey. On the first Saturday all men's hockey was postponed although the women's games were played—a somewhat different outlook. Last Saturday, although games were not postponed, no one match reached completion.
The seniors, playing out at the Hutt, started their match against Dorset in pouring rain and a bitter southerly. As they were more able to adapt themselves to the conditions they were three goals up after twenty-five minutes' play when Dorset decided to call it a day, Varsity winning by 3 goals to nil. G. Rae, playing outside right, scored all the goals, each being the result of staunch backing-up by the whole team. I. Ting and N. Towns infused plenty of dash Into their play. G. Kemble-Welch. at full-back, has strengthened our defence considerably and It is hoped that the defence will play above Itself in this week's Karori match.
The Senior A.B team under Max Christie decided that the weather was best and did not take the field at all. Karori, the second team on the ladder, withheld a strong challenge from our Second A team, emerging the winners by 4-2.
After one spell the Third Grade B match was abandoned, much to their disappointment, the score at the time being nil all. This was a very creditable effort as the opposing team, Wellington College A, is one of the well-placed teams in the grade.
The positions of the various teams are as follows:—
Senior A.A—1st equal with
|Senior A.B—On their own||0||points.|
