Res hockey season comes to an end

The third and fourth place playoffs on 26 August saw Curlitzia claim bronze as they beat Madelief 2-0 and Boekenhout finished third in the men’s league as they managed a 1-0 win over Kollege 1.

The level of commitment and dedication shown in the res league this season has shown that residence sport is more than recreational. OP captain Lauren Immelman said, “I do not agree that res hockey is simply recreational, especially not for the players that participate in it. Every team that we played against as well as our own team took it very seriously and played with great enthusiasm, commitment and spirit. I think this is because we have the opportunity to uphold the res or day house’s name that we all feel loyal toward, while playing a game that we all love. In my experience, res hockey, as well as any other res sporting leagues and activities, is vital in creating unison between the members of the res and not just the players, but also the supporters.”

Kevin Monaghan, captain of Taaibos, said, “I think there is always an extra bit of competition in any inter-residence event, and the hockey is no different. Not only do the teams want to win their games and do well for the team, they want to do well and hold their res name high. Any sporting or competitive league is competitive in its own right, I can only say that what I find different in the hockey league is that each team is just as competitive as the next, pushing each res to want to do better and play with more gusto each time, creating a unique feeling around each game.”
