1st XI Hockey vs Christchurch schools

St Paul's Collegiate School —

Over the July holiday break, the 1st XI hockey team travelled to Christchurch for two days of hockey against Canterbury schools.

This was the first phase of their preparation for the Rankin Cup competition over Winter Tournament Week.

St Paul’s played three games, against St Andrew’s College, Christchurch Boys’ High School and Christ’s College.

St Paul’s were competitive in the first two games, losing to St Andrew’s, but playing well in patches and drawing with Christchurch Boys’. Unfortunately, the last game against Christ’s was not great, with missed opportunities and a lack of focus leading to defeat.
