The Bounty Paper Towel -Quicker Picker Upper- men’s and Women’s Outdoor, Second Division and the Solo Drinks Under-20 Girls’ and Boys’ Outdoor Development Leagues resumes this weekend after an extended four-month break with six highly anticipated matches in both the under-20 and second division leagues at the Saint Stanislaus College (SSC) ground.
Saints Hockey Club (SHC) lead both the men and women’s categories of the second division, while they lie second and fourth in the under-20 girls’ and boys’ division, respectively.
Head coach of the SHC setup, Robert Fernandes, who was instrumental in the clubs’ resuscitation and formation of the women’s team which is just a few years old, is hoping that the SHC teams remain focused as they look to hold on to their lead for victory in the Bounty Paper Towel – Quicker Picker Upper- Men’s & Women’s Second Division Leagues.
Although not leading in the under-20 girls’ division, Fernandes is optimistic in the side’s ability to leapfrog leaders Bingo GCC Spartans.
SHC are still some way behind before being a force to be reckon with in the first division but the club’s development is evident and they boast the largest pool of players in the development leagues that will resume this weekend with initial play in the second round.
The fixtures for this weekend’s play are as follows, on Saturday, the action hits off at 15:00hrs sharp with second place GCC Pitbulls battling fifth place YMCA Old Fort (OF) Generals in the boys’ under-20 division.
At 15:50hrs, second place GBTI GCC will fancy their chances of getting past last ranked YMCA OF Wild Cats in the women’s second division league. GCC The Sequel will play Hikers Cadets in the final match on Saturday at 16:40hrs in the men’s second division.
