Welcome to Yacck - we hope you have great pleasure in reading the stories from the past and would love you to make positive comments for everyone to enjoy. The Yacck Team.
Southland Men's hockey in 1936 saw 4 teams in the Senior A grade and 4 teams in the Senior B Grade. It was August and the conclusion of the tournament saw Civil Service win the A Grade and High School win the B Grade.
Civil Service beat Central Blue 7 -1.
The teams were:
Civil Service: Taylor, Gee, Jenkins, Dakin, Sharp, Goldstone, M. Crosbie, Souness, Hardcastle, Rennick, Anderson.
Central Blues: Cook, Lythgoe, Tisbury, Low, Semmens, A. McLean, Gray, Flaus, D. Kennedy, Speirs, Walker.
Civil Service started at a quick pace and basically played the whole game in their opposition's half.
Due to hasty shooting in the circle it was actually a long time before they scored.
Souness, caught the goalie on the wrong foot and slammed in the ball to the goal.
Rennick, when not persisting in carrying the ball over the backline, passed with judgement. From one of these phases he had the ball returned to him and was in the perfect position to find the goal.
The third goal was scored by Goldstone, who followed in fast to flick the ball into the top of the net.
Rennick, who had moved to the inside right, added another two goals.
Strangely enough, Civil Service actually scored more goals in the second half, when Central Blues were stronger.
Shortly before full time Central Blues attacked strongly but just could not find the net.
Chisnall outstanding at goalie for Central against Collegiate in Southland hockey in 1936......
Central drew with Collegiate 2-2 in a game which was a start stop affair due to the condition of the field.
The teams were:
Central: Chisnall, Elliott, Howard, Crosbie, C. McLean, Aitken, Berry, Maystone, Kennedy, Hughes, Mullen.
Collegiate: N. Poole, Dixon, Fenton, Martin, Richards, Hunt, Stirling, Shield, V. Poole, Melrose, Donaldson.
Collegiate were first to score from a Kennedy goal, with neither team really dominating play. Collegiate was unlucky not to score on a couple of attempts, but the ball was well stopped by Chisnall.
It was Fenton and Dixon hard on defence that thwarted any opportunity for Central.
After V. Poole missed an easy goal, with only the goalie to beat, he struck back with a well timed passed from Donaldson, who had made a lengthy run.
Central kept on attack but N. Poole's attempt at goal was stopped by his own team player's legs. Mr L. Holmes was the referee.
Watson scored two goals for Technical against High School in hockey - Invercargill 1936.......
High School v Technical were the only B Grade match played that weekend with the other two teams unable to field a full team.
Technical had their best game of the season which resulted in a close and interesting game with High School wining 3-2.
No other team had been able to come this close to High School. Technical were actually up 2-0, scored by Watson, which woke up High School and they came back with two great goals by Gray.
