Soccer, senior

A small band of Toti United Football Club (TUFC) footballers, led by the now famous Chris(tiano) Crouch, decided to give up their public holiday to participate in a charity seven a-side football event hosted by Choc, Childhood Cancer Foundation South Africa.

Expecting a "corporate" event, the boys were shocked to see the professional nature of their opposition on the day. Nevertheless we eased through the group stages, topping the log with three wins and two draws.

The team stepped up the plate and won the quarter-finals convincingly 3-1 thanks to some great goal keeping by Shadow.

The semi-final looked like it was going to go to penalties, until a few minutes before the final whistle when the boys turned on the style and won 2-0. The final was a tense affair, with the opposition having most of the possession, but our structure and teamwork restricted the opposition to long range shots. Our tactics paid off as we won the final 3-0 and took home the spoils without losing a single game the entire day. Congratulations to Sean Ayling for taking player of the tournament and thank you to all our faithful supporters.

Rugby

Toti first team consolidated their third place position on the Fidelity Security Moor Cup Top Five conference log behind Your Communications College Rovers and SA Home Loans Durban Collegians with a 22-14 victory over Varsity College RFC at Hutchison Park on Saturday, 18 June.

The home team started the game well and could consider themselves a little unfortunate not to have got onto the scoreboard early after a period of sustained pressure yielded little in terms of results. It was in fact, Varsity College that got in for the first try of the game after a mistake on attack by Toti allowed them gather a loose ball, which was then shifted through a number of hands to their flying winger who went over, despite the attentions of the scrambling Toti defence. The successful conversion gave them an early 7-0 lead against the run of play.

For the remainder of the half it was all
Toti as they dominated both territory and possession, and it was fly half Werner who gave them the 12 - 7 half time lead with two well taken tries, one of which was converted by Jaco de Jager. Botha was unlucky not to have chalked up his hat trick when, in the act of grounding the ball to score, it slipped from his grasp and was cleared into touch by Varsity College to bring the first half to a close.

The second half again saw Toti enjoying the lion's share of ball and field position, which was rewarded when flanker Mike Uppink collected a long throw at a lineout and barged over for Toti's third try of the afternoon. The conversion attempt went wide leaving the score at 17-7 with 20 minutes left.

Toti now went in search of the bonus point try. Some sublime skill in the midfield and sleight of hand saw flanker and captain Kevin Buck round off a move to score a try.
With the conversion attempt going wide Toti now held a commanding 22-7 lead with less than 10 minutes remaining in the game.

Just as Varsity College had opened the scoring, it was them who brought the curtain down on proceedings with an unconverted try, after again capitalising on a Toti mistake
after the home team had been on attack.

The Eagle Canyon Spur man of the match awards went to fly half Werner Botha and to hooker Etienne Ries. A new incentive from Johan Keet and his team at Eagle Canyon Spur saw eighth man Conrad Mostert collect his award for the biggest hit of the day.

Toti next take on current log leaders Your Communications College Rovers on their Kings Park Three home turf on Saturday, 25 June. Kick off is at 3pm.
