DSG vs Woodridge - Netball and Hockey

On Saturday the 16th, while the rest of the Eastern Province were still enjoying the last weekend of the school holidays, DSG were hosting Woodridge College in Grahamstown for their annual Derby Day, and a number of hockey and netball matches were played.

The 1st team netball was a one sided affair, with DSG showing why they are one of the top rated teams in the Eastern Province as they ran away with the match to win 46-3. DSG were clinical in all areas as usual, with Emma Koster once again showing her goal shooting prowess. DSG have won 22 of their 27 matches played in 2016, and they will be looking for a strong finish to their season as they take on Kingsridge and Framesby in the coming weeks.

The 1st team hockey was a much anticipated affair with Woodridge, who have been putting together a very good season, with some outstanding results to date, coming up against the top side in the Eastern Cape. It was very close in the first half with both teams hitting the woodwork, and it was DSG who went into the break 1-0 up courtesy of a Storm Christy penalty stroke after her drag flick was illegally stopped by the Woodridge postman on the line. Woodridge came out fighting in the 2nd half, however a DSG counter attack which swept the full length of the field 5 minutes after the restart saw Amy Dixie finish with style to break Woodridge hearts as the score moved to 2-0. A well worked DSG penalty corner variation followed which saw DSG and the EP U18A captain - Lenta Cullinan coolly convert the opportunity, to secure the 3-0 victory for DSG.
