HOCKEY – Mr. Shehan Omerdeen (Secretary)
This year too, the CMCC Women’s Hockey Team won the President’s Cup League Hockey Tournament, organized by the Colombo Hockey Association for the second consecutive year. This team was captained by Ms. Buddhika Guneratne and her deputy being Ms. U.G.S.V. Udatenna. We beat Colombo Colts Women’s Hockey Team in the finals 6-0 to emerged championship. The Knock Out tournament is due to take place shortly where we will be playing in the finals of that tournament too.
We participated in the Men’s ‘B’ division Pioneer Shield Hockey Tournament, conducted by the Colombo Hockey Association (CHA), and won all the matches despite losing some of our best players to Old Zahirian SC, subsequently we were disqualified after the semi-final match against Old Zahirian SC from further participation of the tournament, informing us that we have included a Navy Player. We have made our protest with regard to this. The team was captained by Mr. Shehan Omerdeen and his deputy being Mr. Palitha Wasalage.
We thank Mr. Shehan Omerdeen, who was Instrumental in guiding and coaching the teams, whilst Mr. Tony Mohothar supported and managed the teams successfully.
We congratulate Mr. Omerdeen for being elected to the Umpires’ committee and Mr. Malik Zahir being elected as Treasurer of the Colombo Hockey Association.
