Hockey heats up

15 October 2019 | Sports

The Bank Windhoek National Outdoor Hockey League Premier League for men and women took place over the weekend.
As it stands in the men’s division, two teams –defending champions Saints and DTS – look likely to emerge as victors as the league draws closer to its conclusion. At the moment, Saints are top of the table with an 18 point lead ahead of DTS at 16 points.

Men’s Premier League
Last week Windhoek Old Boys Sports Club (WOBSC) and UNAM delivered a thrilling encounter, with the latter quickly scoring the first goal. However, in the early stages of the second quarter, WOBSC responded with Dylan Finch slipping past UNAM’s defence and scoring a well-executed field goal to tie the score at 1-all. It was only in the last quarter that both teams scored again, bringing the encounter to a 2-all draw.
On Friday, Wanderers and Saints battled it out in a match that started at a high intensity. The first quarter saw both teams squaring each other up before Saints broke the deadlock whereafter they scored two more goals, cementing their lead with a 3-0 score. In the final quarter, Saints moved up another gear with two more goals scored, giving Saints a 5:0 win, earning them another bonus point.
On Saturday, WOBSC and DTS played each other, with the latter managing to score. WOBSC fought back but were unable to equalize. Not much later, DTS made it 2:0. As the game progressed, WOBSC managed to pull a goal back, but in the long run the game ended with a 4:1 advantage for DTS.

Women’s Premier League
On Wednesday, Wanderers faced UNAM, ending in a 2:0 win for Wanderers.
The outdoor league continues this week with matches scheduled for Wednesday (16), Friday (18) and Saturday (19 October).
