The Wynberg staff were challenged by Sweet Valley to a hockey match under lights on the Bergvliet Astro on Wednesday 25 June 2014.

Wynberg’s team under the captaincy of  headmaster Mr Richardson (playing at striker) took first blood when Mr Richardson struck a wonderful goal off an assist from the Director of Sport Mr Rudd.

Within minutes, Mr Murison buried the ball in the back of the net off another assist from the Director of Sport.  But with two goals up tragedy struck for Wynberg as their captain, sprinting down the wing, took a tumble tearing his hamstring.  Fortunately for Wynberg his replacement, Mr Van Schalkwyk, was to prove equally dangerous to the Sweet Valley defence.

Wynberg’s ‘young guns’ soon found their feet with Mr Grobler (Junior) scoring an impressive goal beating the entire Sweet Valley defence in the D.

Sweet Valley however hit back with three quick goals to level the game before the dangerous Mr Van Schalkwyk showed his worth by scoring the winning goal for Wynberg.

Wynberg 4 – Sweet Valley 3.

The return match at Wynberg is set to be a mouth-watering spectacle for loyal hockey fans.
