Injured Marescia’s big moment put on hold
- Updated: September 29, 2012
Marsha Marescia’s 300th hockey Test cap milestone has been put on hold due to injury, reports Jon Cook.
The most capped player in the history of South African women’s hockey, Marescia was due to enjoy that historic momen when SA take on hosts Ireland on the opening day of the eight-nation Champions Challenge tournament in Dublin on Saturday.
SA assistant coach Fabian Gregory said national team captain Marescia, who won her 299th cap at the London Olympic Games, has not recovered from a leg injury but may play later in the tournament.
Durban-based SA defender Lenise Marais now takes over the captain’s armband.
