EDEN LODGE PRIMARY SCHOOL can boast of creating a hockey dynasty after capturing their fourth successive CGI National Sports Council crown yesterday at the Netball Stadium.
What made the victory even sweeter was that Eden Lodge had to hold off a serious challenge from Ellerton Primary, who had earlier taken the skills challenge and who picked up most of the individual awards.
But, after numerous attacks by both finalists and top saves from goalkeeper Deyonte Bailey of Eden Lodge, the princes of hockey slotted home a winner with seconds left in regular time, thanks to Andre Rock. (KB)
