Hockey & Rugby
The past weekend saw the St John’s College rugby and hockey teams travelling to Pretoria Boys High School, where 30 games were played across both sporting codes.
It was a tough day at the office for most of the St John’s hockey teams who only picked up three victories out of their 16 games played. The First XI did very well in their clash against this top-performing Pretoria Boy’s side with a hard-fought 2-2 draw. There were another three draws from the St John’s teams, with all boys putting in valiant efforts against Pretoria Boys’.
The rugby also saw some bruising results with our hosts enjoying the better results in the exchanges. The main game saw the Blues coming out as the winners with a final score of 19-27 in a tightly contested matchup on Brookes Field.
Other notable results included the Third XV and the U16Bs who remain unbeaten as they go into their final games of the season against St Stithians College
Well done to all our players, coaches and staff for making it a successful weekend in Pretoria, ahead of the final winter sports encounter, the #PinkDerby at home against St Stithians this weekend.
Our First Team Tennis boys participated in an invitational league fixture against Redhill School where we played incredibly well, picking up five match victories and emerging the overall winners. Well done, gents! For results, please visit https://sport.sjc.co.za
