This Saturday is the last and we are going out to sleep till Sunday. I am in the third eleven of Havelock house I am a back. We have had three matches 2 we won and 1 was a draw. We played St. Joseph’s School for the cup and beat them the score was 2.1. The hockey [deleted] S [/deleted] sticks are very nice ones. We have got blue rubber on them
