The Spike: or, Victoria College Review 1912
Men's Hockey Club
Men's Hockey Club.
Another season has drawn to a close, so far, at least, as the Senior Championship is concerned. There still remain two games in the Junior and Third-Class grades. The Club is to be congratulated on a very successful season. The Senior team again occupies the position of runners-up. IIA are third in their championship, IIB hold nth place, and the thirds win the wooden spoon.
Seniors.—Bowler has filled the vacant place in the team, and has fully justified his inclusion. The play of the season has on several occasions been disappointing, and though the personnel of the team has been often severely criticised, the Committer feels certain that without exception it was the best team available at College. C. and G. Strack again filled places in the Representative team, while Burbidge and Thompson played for the B Representatives, Burbidge being also emergency for the Representative team. Hogg and Cleghorn are to be congratulated on obtaining places in the Junior Representatives.
Juniors.—IIA have held together well, and, but for hard luck, would have been higher up the ladder. The play on the whole has been very good, and there are several promising recruits for next year's Senior team.
IIB have battled manfully, and towards the end of the season developed into a very strong combination.
III.—One might write "Least said," but all honour to those, the valiant few (for Hockey accounts an average of eight men a match a very few), who Saturday after Saturday, under Edwards the Indomitable, laced overwhelming odds.
