Schools Super 12 hockey list complete

HARARE - The Schools Hockey Northern Region A League has named seven schools which qualified for the National Super 12 tournament to be held in Bulawayo early next month.

With only one game left before the end of the season, St George’s College, Hellenic Academy, Eaglesvale, St John’s College, Peterhouse, Hillcrest and Churchill have managed to collect enough points to qualify for the national competition.

The other five schools to participate in the Super 12 will come from the Southern Region Schools Hockey League.

Falcon has already won the Southern Region tittle after finishing their campaign unbeaten with 25 points from eight wins and one draw.

The other four schools which have already qualified for the Super 12 in the Southern Region are Hippo Valley, Southern Eastern College, Christian Brothers College and Petra High.

Falcon are the defending national champions. However, Hilton Zuze, the national secretary for schools hockey, believes the Northern Region has a better chance of winning this year’s title.

“For the past two years the event was dominated by Southern Region but this year I think the Northern Region has strong teams to win the title,” Zuze told the Daily News yesterday.

“The Northern Region league competition is very exciting and I think this is one of the best seasons in the history of the league.

“Currently the league is left with one game before it ends but three schools still have the chance to win the championship.

“I am happy with the talent of these juniors and with what we are seeing in our league I think Zimbabwe have a bright future in as far as hockey is concerned.”
