The Bounty Paper Towel -Quicker Picker Upper- men’s and women’s outdoor, second division, development hockey league and the Solo Drinks under-20 men’s and women’s outdoor leagues will have to wait until next week to recommence following their two month break to accommodate the wet season.
Play was set to recommence this weekend but although the rain has rescinded, preparatory work needs to be done on the venue; St. Stanislaus College (SSC) ground, so the organisers, the Guyana Hockey Board (GHB), for a second consecutive week, has decided to push the restart back to a one more week.
When the last match day of the second division league was played in May, Saints women defeated Bingo Georgetown Cricket Club (GCC) Spartans 2-0 to maintain their 100% record after winning each of their three games played.
On the men’s side, a hat-trick from Captain Hilton Chester spurred Saints Savages to a 4-3 win over Old Fort Rusty; a result that ultimately saw them going top in the men’s second division.
Meanwhile, GCC The Sequel lost their grip at the top of the men’s second division after losing 2-1 to Hikers Cadets.
In the boys’ under-20, YMCA Old Fort Hockey Club (OFHC) Ballers top the points table with 10 points with a better goal difference than second place GCC Pitbulls. On the distaff side, Bingo GCC Spartans are top after winning each of their three games played.
