Rondebosch 2nd Team vs. Langa 1st Team - 25/04/2009 - Home
Rondebosch 2nd's did well to secure a 3-0 victory over Langa this weekend. Langa played at a high pace
with good ball skills that seemed to be a match for our calm, structured hockey. After some good
defending, Rondebosch countered well and conjured 3 goals. Jason Giesler scored 2 while Daniel Blake
scored 1 with his first touch of the game. The boys did well to slow the game down at the back and
play with a patience that kept us in control.
Rondebosch U16C Team vs. Pinelands H S U16B Team – 25/04/2009
The U16C side had it’s first match against the Pinelands U16B side on Saturday 25th April.
Despite adverse weather conditions which made playing on grass especially difficult the team
managed to beat the B side from Pinelands thanks to a first half goal by Jarryd Son,
who got the shot past the goalie after some interplay in the D by the RBHS forwards.
Pinelands seemed happy to sit back and defend and try to hit RBHS on the counter-attack,
a tactic that did not work for them on the day. The scoreline did not give a fair reflection
of the game as RBHS spent the majority of the second half in the opposition’s side of the
field and had it not been for some very rusty finishing shots and the omnipresent Pinelands
goalie, the score would have been much higher.

Rondebosch U16D Team vs. Camps Bay H S – 25/04/2009 - Away
On Saturday the 25 of April the U16D hockey team travelled to Camps Bay to play against Camps Bay
The conditions were very wet with constant rain which made playing difficult. Our team played very
well for our first game together, winning comfortably. The score at the end of the first half was
4 – 0 to Bosch. After a fairly lengthy half-time discussion, Bosch scored another 2 goals in the
second half - the final score being 6 – 0 in favour of Bosch, with Bjorn Seifritz single handedly
scoring all 6 goals.
I would like to commend the team on a great game of hockey played. I am looking forward to
further success and a great season ahead.
