Girl's Hockey: The SA Schools Top 40 Rankings: 14/04/2015

A dramatic final of the St.Mary’s Investec Hockey Festival between Oranje Meisies and St. Stithians turned out to be a battle for the top spot on the SA School Sports Hockey Rankings for Girls and ultimately it was Oranje that held out for the tightest of wins.

With scores level 1-1 after full-time and little to choose between the two sides it was Oranje that held its nerve to score the golden goal and clinch the St.Mary’s Festival for the second consecutive year.

As sweet as that title was, there would perhaps be a little disappointment from the Oranje girls who on the road to the final tasted their first defeat in nearly three years when Saints edged them 1-0 in the pool stages. It was a massive effort by Saints to end an unprecedented run of victories by arguably the most powerful schoolgirl hockey side in the country.

However it was in the final that Oranje extracted sweet revenge with a victory that keeps them as the leading team on the rankings.

A team that unfortunately was not at the festival was Springfield Convent who is a formidable side and it would have been interesting to see how they would have fared against the top teams in SA. However they did enjoy a successful tour of Johannesburg which included victories over Menlopark, St.Stithians, St Andrews and a 1-1 draw against St. Mary’s Waverley.

This is how the rankings are looking like at this stage of the season. Please send through your outstanding results or enquiries to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
