The Northwood 1st hockey team played to a tough 2 – 2 draw against Pretoria Boys on Friday 17 May.

The second half saw Northwood completely dominate the play and they were rewarded with about 10 minutes to play when Dale van der Merwe scored his second drag flick of the game. Northwood continued to pile on the pressure but were unable to grab the winner.

The team showed good character to get a result after a long day of travelling.
