MUSIKILI SONG

S A  Hockey  Tour

Field hockey, in schools throughout the world, is quickly gaining momentum as one of the most popular sports around. The camaraderie, social aspect and popularity as a club sport make it an exciting option after school as well. This is no different in Zambia, where the youth development programme, more specifically with the OYDC, offering the country some exceptional hockey talent. This talent was clear in our pre-tour warm up game against the OYDC boys and girls on Astro, which provided a perfect opportunity to fine-tune skills and game plans before our departure to South Africa. 

Despite a few tense moments at the airport check-in, we all arrived safely in Durban, and we were off to the Natal Midlands. Homemade pies from the Rotunda farm store in Hilton were enjoyed before arriving at the picturesque Michaelhouse Astro for our first game of tour against Clifton Nottingham Road U12 teams. The hockey games were followed by some competitive Indoor tennis under lights at Clifton for the girls and a good old South African braai at their pavilion. The large parent contingent was there in full force to support both events before settling in to the warmth of the Notties Hotel. 

Sporting tours are not only about playing games, but also experiencing the local sites and exciting adventures. Friday morning provided an opportunity to conquer a few fears, zip lining over the treetops in the valley of the Karkloof Forest Reserve – a highlight of the tour for many of the children. The girls moved off to the beautiful St Anne’s in Hilton for the start of their three-day festival. With the boys’ festival only starting on Saturday, a trip back up the hill took them to Treverton College in Mooi River for a friendly fixture. 

The misty Midlands is an affectionate name given to the area, and the mist would not disappoint. According to the locals, it was the coldest weekend of the year, and early games for the boys and girls meant the visibility was virtually non-existent at both Hilton College, where the boys were based, and St Anne’s, the girls’ festival venue. Already at a disadvantage with limited experience on Astro and playing against some extremely tough schools with huge numbers, the cold weather certainly did not help us acclimatise. The girls were fortunate enough to play both outdoor and indoor games over the 3 days and proved competitive in all their fixtures winning a few games, drawing some games and losing tightly contested affairs by the smallest of margins. Although the boys only played outdoor games, the 3 games per day were spread out enough to allow them to explore the incredible Hilton campus. 

The festivals were wrapped up late Sunday afternoon, after which the Midlands Liberty Mall was visited for some fun and games. With an afternoon fixture on Monday against Cowan House, the boys and girls were offered the unique experience of visiting South African icon and struggle hero, Nelson Mandela’s, capture site on the Midlands Meander. Some putt-putt at Piggly Wiggly and lunch on the St Ives deck finished off the morning before the girls took on the Cowan House tennis team. Both the boys and girls then moved across to the St Anne’s astro for the final game against the teams from Cowan House, with the girls ending the tour on a high with a last minute victory against strong opposition. 

 

A few hours on the beach in Umdloti was a fitting end to a wonderful tour before the flight back to Lusaka. I would like to thank the Musikili staff for giving up their time to accompany the teams on the tour. Mrs Jackson and Miss Pitt ensured the girls were well coached and looked after throughout and the boys, under the expert guidance of Mr Katele, improved significantly during the tour. A massive thank you to Mr Jackson, for his support and leadership on the tour, stepping in a number of occasions to help micro manage logistical problems encountered by the girls. Finally, a big shout out to the parents for their ongoing support on tour – those who travelled and those supporting from back home. 

Results

Girls’ Tennis 

Although the tennis was a bonus on tour for the girls and results not a priority, the spoils were shared against both Cowan House and Clifton, with games going to the wire in most matches. The most important aspect of the tennis was the lovely rallies produced by all the pairs against both schools, balancing aggression and tactical appreciation perfectly. 

Girls’ Hockey 

Friendlies: 

Musikili 1 – 1 vs Clifton U12; 1 – 0 vs Cowan House 

Festival Outdoor: 

Musikili 0 – 1 vs St Stithians A; 1 – 2 vs Somerset House; 1 – 1 vs Westville; 3 – 2 vs Winterton; 0 – 2 vs Virginia; 0 – 0 vs St Andrews; 0 – 2 vs Chelsea 

Festival Indoor: 

Musikili 3 – 0 vs Winterton; 2 – 1 vs Fatima; 1 – 1 vs St John’s 

Although a tour of this nature is certainly a massive team effort, the leading goal scorer in the 12 games was Mary Jellis with 8 goals, followed by Lisa Duckett with 3. Grace Thomas and Jodi Bawden scored 1 goal apiece. 

Boys Hockey

Friendlies: 

Musikili 0 – 1 vs Clifton U12; 6 – 1 vs Treverton; 0 – 1 vs Cowan House
