The CBC Hornets played a largely defensive game against another strong Falcon Mad Dogs side at Hartsfield on Saturday, as the sequence of photographs published below illustrate.

However what the 53-0 scoreline does not show is the renewed strength and determination of this year’s CBC First Team.

CBC Skulls held

CBC First Team hockey, the Skulls, took on perennial rivals, the Petra Raiders, on Wednesday in a nail-biting encounter which ended in a one-all stalemate.
Before the match both the coach and captain of the Skulls predicted action filled hockey for hockey lovers as both sides were good and rearing to go…and that’s exactly what they delivered. They had both admitted that Petra might have the psychological upper hand because they had beaten them on tour in the last game when they had injuries and high fatigue. In addition, the Raiders featured seasoned players while the Skulls, this year, are a young and developing team.

Final Score: Dragons 39 Hornets 17

In this weekend’s encounter with Harare rugby power house, the St George’s Dragons, the CBC Hornets demonstrated their zeal and passion to change things around this season…and although in the end the score line shows the Dragons in the lead, the team’s grit and determination was clearly evident, particularly in the second half.

In the first half the Dragons showed their intent to continue the dominance they have enjoyed over the Hornets for some years by grabbing the lead.

The Music department is growing rapidly in terms of the number of people interested and those who are actively involved. It now has under it guitarists, keyboardists, drummers, vocalists, and marimba players. The commitment and hard work by members has gained them recognition both within CBC and outside. Thanks to the efforts of Mr. R. Fenwick, who is in charge of the band and is responsible for teaching the boys how to play various musical instruments, and the Music HOD, Mrs.T. Burns, who is overall in charge of the Music Department and trains the Choir and Marimba, the Music Department is headed for great things.
