Saints still ruling the roost

10 September 2019 | Sports

The first Premier League games for both men and women in the 2019 Bank Windhoek National Outdoor Field Hockey League, took place at Windhoek High School (WHS) and the Windhoek Gymnasium hockey fields in the capital over the weekend.
The fixtures saw current champions Saints sweep away competitors in both the men’s and women’s divisions respectively.

Men’s Premier League
Last Wednesday, Saints locked horns with DTS. The match started off on a high note but Saints managed to slice through DTS’ defence to lead 1:0 at half time, thanks to a solitary goal by Cody van der Merwe.
Saints continued to torment DTS’ defence which later resulted in a penalty for Saints early in the second half. Van der Merwe once again stepped up and slotted in from the penalty spot, which gave his team a decisive 2:0 lead. However, DTS did not give up hope and continued to exert pressure on Saints. Their efforts resulted into Ivan Mendes-Semedo scoring for DTS. Saints responded by tightening up its defence which saw them win the match 2:1 in the end.
On Saturday at WHS, Saints took on a refreshed UNAM team. The encounter started off quickly, with Saints having the upper hand in the first quarter, with Brandon Lensen scoring in the opening minutes of the match. Despite UNAM’s aggressive second half display, the match ended with the same score line as in the first half.

Women’s Premier League
Saints played DTS on Wednesday in a slow-going encounter. Saints dominated and were rewarded by three goals in the first half scored by Azaylee Philander Jaime Gilles and Kerrin Gilles.
Saints kept the momentum in the third and fourth quarter with Philander registering another two goals to seal her hat trick. The game ended in a 5:0 Saints’ triumph.
The league continues this weekend, with X-team from Walvis Bay debuting in the Men’s Premier League. They will be playing both Wanderers and DTS.
