THE South Africa men’s indoor hockey team made the series against Africa All Stars safe with a 5-2 win after leading 3-0 at half-time in the third exhibition match at the Nolands PSI Nationals 2014 in Cape Town yesterday.

The eighth Nolands PSI (Pro Series Indoor) Nationals is a nine-day celebration of junior indoor hockey that ends on Friday and has almost 2 000 boys and girls from the U13 to U18 age groups taking part. The juniors play for franchises situated nationwide and in Namibia.

SA, who are playing at the Indoor World Cup in Leipzig, Germany from February 4 to 8, won the first two matches 6-4 and 6-2 respectively at the University of Cape Town indoor sports centre on Friday and Saturday.

The fourth and final match is at 7.15 pm tomorrow, again at UCT.

Like the first two, yesterday’s third match enjoyed end-to-end action, with coach Ryan Hack’s SA lads having the edge in the strike zone.
