Boys Hockey: The SA School's Top 65 Rankings for 2014

It always is encouraging to see a former champion pick themselves up off the floor and fight their way back to the very top and defy the naysayers who had all but written them off. In Maritzburg College we have just such a champion who were knocked unceremoniously off their throne last season after dominating school hockey for decades.

SCHOOL BOYS HOCKEY RANKINGS 2014

In 2014 despite many school’s showing that they have closed the gap and were equally competitive, as they queued up to take a shot at the wounded champion, it was up to Maritzburg College, who have produced more International players than any school in the world, to take up the challenge and prove that they can still mix it with the best and regain their former status.

It was tough going for the first half of the season when they stumbled with a draw against KES (who they later beat 6-0) and never turned up for their encounter with Wynberg who dented their confidence. Yet as the season progressed, the Red, White and Black machine slowly started to gain momentum and began brushing aside the opposition, hammering in goals against some of the strongest opposition in the country.

Scoring on average just under four goals per match and only conceding a tad over one goal a match, College have climbed their way back to the leading position in Schoolboy hockey. This may not be the most talented side that they have produced but it must certainly be one of the most tenacious, a side that never gave up and fought to the end of the season all the way to the top of the rankings.

Many thanks for literally thousands of emails that we received during the course of the season with all the positive feedback and suggestions that came our way.
