After a year hiatus, the Moss Vale High School's girls hockey team dusted off their uniforms and competed in the first round of the Combined High School (CHS) Hockey Knockout.
Moss Vale triumphed in the round against Kiama High School in a 9-0 win on Thursday.
Coach Matthew Nash said the game was played in "great spirit."
"The girls were really excited to play again," he said.
"It's great to have sport back again, after having no sport at all last year."
The win qualifies Moss Vale as part of the top four teams in the South Coast that will compete in a round robin.
Moss Vale will compete against Mulwaree, Bowral and Crookwell High School in the match at Welby on May 14.
Mr Nash said there will be tough competition.
"The toughest competition in the next round will come from Mulwaree High School who finished second in the NSW CHS competition in 2019," he said.
"They have some outstanding players and have depth across their team, especially in key positions.
"If we don't win, we will be knocked out."
