Gregory lauds South African hockey ladies after Kenya win

18 November 2013, 16:58

Nairobi - South African ladies field hockey coach Fabian Gregory was happy to see his side secure a win in their opening match of the African Hockey championships.

The South Africans saw off Kenya's challenge 3-1 in their opening match of the championships Monday at the City Park Stadium in Nairobi.

Lilian Du Plesis, captain Keet Marcelle and Tanya Britz scored the goals for the comeback win and Gregory was pleased with the fighting spirit showed by his side.

" It was a win that showed the great character we have as a team. We played the hosts at their home turf and came back from behind to win so I am very pleased.

" The quality in our play was lacking in the first half but in the second we showed it, so it is a good win for a start, he said.

South Africa take on Ghana in their second match of the tourney on Tuesday.
