🏑 HBHS 1st XI Hockey team wins big at the New Plymouth Boys' High School Exchange

Oliver Gordon —

The HBHS Hockey 1st XI had a very successful day at the office on Thursday the 10th of June with a 5 - 1 win over NPBHS.

Our preparation for 2021 started with some pre-season games in the April school holidays, and our first proper hit was the recent Matthew Allen Cup game. With the help of the HBHS Army of Supporters, we were able to come away with a 3 - 1 win over our local rivals St Paul's Collegiate. Continuing the dominance shown throughout the Waikato Secondary Schools competition, our 1st XI looked to bring this run of good form into the winter exchanges. We absolutely accomplished this goal with an impressive 5 - 1 win over NPBHS.  The future looks bright for the team, with two goals scored apiece by Year 11 students Leon du Preez and Dylan Bailey.
