College contain spirited Westville

2015-03-31 00:00

WITH many of the schools closing last Friday for the Easter holidays, there was a limited amount of sport played at the weekend. On the hockey front though, Westville hosted Maritzburg College in a real battle of defences with only a single goal deciding the encounter.

This was College’s second outing of the season and they were given a good run by Westville, who tested them in all departments. Westville had their opportunities, especially in the first half, when they enjoyed a succession of three penalty corners to break the deadlock. With two of them, they could have gone into the break a goal to the good, but they happened to catch College ’keeper Sanele Magoso in belligerent mood and he saved both attempts.

College too had their chances, but opportunities were missed and it took a shot from a penalty corner, courtesy of College’s Courtney Halle eight minutes from time, to score what proved the difference between the sides. Spirited Westville were nearly rewarded when a well taken drag flick from a penalty corner struck the crossbar with a minute of play remaining.

In a Durban derby between Northwood and DHS, the boys from across the Umgeni River came out 4-3 winners.
