What a gruelling season it has been. The girls’ hockey season started on 2 March 2019, and for 13 competitive weeks the under 15 girls team has had amazing results. Playing through their league, and consecutive derby days, the under 15 girls ended top of their league in their age group.
The team proceeded to the nerve-wrecking quarterfinals where they dominated Hoërskool Delmas, with the final score of 3-2.
The under 15 girls faced Hoërskool Dinamika in a nail-biting semi-final on Saturday, 8 June 2019. With Hoërskool Dinamika dominating from the first whistle, Edenvale managed to score in the second half, making the score 1-0. And in the final play of the game, Hoërskool Dinamika attempted a short corner, and could not get past the Edenvale goalie. The under 15 girls won 1-0 to put them through to the finals taking place on Saturday, 13 July 2019. This match will determine their placing for the Noordvaal Tournament taking place in Pretoria during the first weekend in August.
