Fixture: Maties 6-2 Kovsies

 

Maties march over Kovsies

The opening round of day two of Varsity Hockey, hosted by UCT saw Maties thump six goals past Kovsies, while Kovsies struggled to keep up with their two.

Maties made no mistake with an early short corner opportunity. Lenta Cullinan slapped one past Kovsies’ keeper Wiane Grobler.

Kovsies were quick to take the lead with Antonet Louw’s head-directed blow that seem to rattle the Maties keeper!

Spectators had to wait until the second half for more points when Aimee Pote placed Maties right back in the lead! Maties continued their goal-scoring with their skipper Paige Phillips increasing their lead at the end of the third quarter.

There were unreal scenes in the final quarter. Maties were down to just eight players because Maties were green-carded and Kovsies opted for their power play, but the lack of numbers did not stop Aimee Pote from bagging her second of the day.

Fixture: NWU 4-1 Wits

NWU come from behind to beat Wits 4-1

Wits held the lead and the possession for the first half but the tides changed drastically in the second half as NWU led the trot from 1-0 down to a final score of 4-1.

Although there was lots of action on the field in the first quarter, both Wits and NWU were deadlocked at a goalless draw.

NWU were put on the back foot early into the second quarter when Lezaan Jansen van Vuuren scored for Wits off a short corner, taking a 1-0 lead.

Wits’ defence remained intact as NWU held most of the possession in the third quarter but were not able to convert their efforts into goals.

NWU would have held their breath when Wits’ missed out on an open goal opportunity.

Just before the end of the third quarter, NWU were able to equalise 1-1 thanks to a penalty stroke.

The start of the final quarter saw Wits fired up to go as they nearly scored just 20 seconds in but NWU keeper Caitlin Grant cleared the danger area.

To the dismay of Wits, NWU were awarded a second penalty stroke which Carli Pretorius successfully bagged to take a 2-1 lead for the first time in the match. NWU continued to apply the pressure as they netted a beautiful reverse stick to exponentially increase their lead to 4-1.

Fixture: UJ 4-3 Tuks

 

UJ bring A game to beat reigning champions Tuks, 4-3

The power duo of Kristen Paton and Jivanka Kruger for UJ set a steady platform to beat Tuks 4-3 on Saturday evening at the UCT astro.

Tuks converted their first short corner opportunity to take the lead just 7 minutes into the first half.

Gabriella Terblanche was quick on the counter-attack with her field goal to peddle UJ into the lead – a lead which they were to hold on to for the remainder of the game.  

Deep into the game, Dinisha Coopoosamy slapped in a sliding shot far post to double UJ’s score to 4.

Tuks brought themselves right back into the game with Natalie Esteves dispatching a successful shortie, closing the gap to 4-2.

Natalie Esteves was on the money early for Tuks in the third quarter as they trailed UJ by just one.

Moments later unfortunately, the medics were brought onto the pitch to attend to Tuks’ player Thandokazi Chithi, who had to leave the field due to injury after she put her body on the line, taking a serious blow to the leg to defend a shot on target.

The crowd were entertained in the final quarter although no goals were conceded by either side, as the score remained 4-3 in favour of UJ.

Fixture: UCT 5-4 Madibaz

 

UCT clinch narrow 5-4 victory over Madibaz in close encounter

In a match that delivered in all respects, it was UCT who emerged victorious on Saturday night with a 5-4 win over Madibaz.

It was a busy first quarter, which included six short corners, but neither side managed a breakthrough. This was mostly due to the solid defence on display from both sides.

Despite the score remaining 0 apiece heading into halftime, the match was far from a slow and defensive performance. Both sides survived a barrage of short corners, displaying steel-wall-like defence. This was the first game in Varsity Hockey 2019 that saw zero goals scored in the first half.

The third quarter got underway with two goals scored in quick succession – one by either side. First up were the Madibaz who seemed undisturbed by a UCT crowd as they made the first breakthrough, placing them 2-0 up. UCT decided to show their worth, slapping a blow right past the keeper to square matters up again at 2-2.

The suspense continued to build as UCT and Madibaz headed into the final quarter of the match with the scores still locked at 2-2.

UCT made perfect use of their powerplay as Aaliyah Dollie netted a goal in the final 10 minutes of the game, edging the home side 4-2 for the first time in the game. UCT continued to increase their lead when captain Andrea Leader easily converted a penalty flick.

Madibaz’s use of the powerplay deep into the final minutes of the game boded well for them as Caitlin Brooks scored a goal, separating the teams with just a single point difference.

Madibaz were clawing their way back into the game but it was time up in Cape Town as hosts UCT walked away with their second win of the tournament.
