On Friday 31 March at 7.30PM the OD Hockey side met their Bosch colleagues in a match to draw 2 all, in a freezing winter's Cape evening. 

It was played on the Astro at Woodlands under floodlights.  This followed the main Bishops Rondebosch Hockey derby.

As the match progressed, so the due brought in the chill.  That never prevented the high spirits in which the match was played, and the spectators were treated to good club hockey. 

This match is in the series of OD rugby and hockey matches that are organised over the Bish Bosch weekend.  Other OD sport matches are arranged for ODs to include the summer and winter games.  Two more winter matches will be played next term, which the ODA Paul Murray manages with the help of the captains and other ODs including Dr WP van Zyl (1997K). 

ODs in the photograph above are L-R bottom row: Luke Ranoszek (2018B), Simon Kilpin (2016O), James Howard (2019M), Wesley Gardener (2016O), Rowan Howard (2021M) & Caleb Oliphant (2020W).

ODs in the top row L - R are James Henderson (2020F), Ben Kilpin (2015O), Andrew Henderson (2018F), Christopher Rhode (2016), Callum Payton, Kyle Bain (2021F), Chris Hodgson (2022B) and Olympian Dayaan Cassiem (2017W).        

Thanks to the OD Staff Dedry Weich and Lynn Swanevelder fo the arrangement and the ODs who played.

They and their colleagues enjoyed the well-deserved liquid refreshment that followed.

Well done and congratulations to the players.

We look forward to the next term's matches!
