Varsity Hockey got off to a thrilling start this past weekend as the local teams, Maties and UCT, gave their fans a reason to celebrate. The picturesque UCT Astro played host to 16 matches over four days. It doesn’t get much more beautiful than high-octane hockey of the highest level, set beneath Table Mountain at sunset.
Here are six of the best snaps from the weekend.

Kovsies’ Antonet Louw was on fire. This shot captures her perfect technique as she lashed home for another goal.
