MIM'S HOCKEY'. A. Grade: Despite -the valiant efforts of our A Team last Saturday, we ^ were unable to continue our winning run and were defeated by Barton ' 1-0. The game opened- in a hard and frst style with both teams playing good sound hockey. Several strong attacks by Barton were repelled, by the strong defence of our halves and backs with Traves, recently returned from the Northern Territory, playing a solid game. The position reversed with University taking the attack but we we-re unable to break the Barton defence. Neither side was able to gain an advantage and at half time there was no score. Resuming in the second half Barton attacked strongly and from ' a penalty bully, Hill netted to give them a 1-0 lead. Aroused by this , reverse, we returned to the attack but were unable to break the Barton , defence, although on several occasions we almost made it. The final whistle went with Barton winning by 1 goal to nil. My selection of -*: best players is Doug Traves, Jack' Garre...
