Kasse Takes Out Gillion Hockey 11s Championship
Last weeekend the rain held off long enough at Ulei School Sports Field to allow Kasse to show why they were the best team in the championship. Skelet came out of the blocks to mount pressure with some early chances but were slowly worn down by solid defence from Keneth and Mark and a dominating midfield led by Jimmie and Phillip. It was end to end hockey with a high standard of sharp passing and Kasse were finally rewarded with a late goal in teh first term to Phillip. Prolific goal-scorer Jerry Berry on the counter proved too much for the Skelet Fish defence as they slotted home a second mid-way through the second term to seal the match.
The VHF committee was delighted to see the support of the Shefa Province Sport Development Team at the match and would like to thank Ulei Juinor Secondary School, Wan Smolbag Youth Centre, Tanoliu Village and Councillor Gillion for supporting the first ever 11-a-side hockey tournament in Vanuatu and look forward to more teams entering next year.
