Coastal give Free State 9-1 thumping

2012-07-12 00:00

ON the third day of the Boys U16 hockey IPT, it was KZN Coastal that had the dawn patrol on Papes at Maritzburg College.

They played against the Southern Free State and it took them a while before they found the back of the net.

Once the first goal was scored by Andile Phelukwayo (Glenwood), the next three before half time came in quick succession.

Phelukwayo was rewarded with two more goals to give him a hat-trick before half time. The other came from Nqobile Ntuli (Kearsney) to give Coastals a 4-0 lead.

In the second half Coastals enjoyed most of the possession as they ran Free State ragged.

Five more goals were scored by Coastals and a consolation goal by Free State to end the game at 9-1.

Ntuli scored the first three goals of the half to give him four in total.

The other two second half goals went to two Glenwood boys, Keagan Hezlett and James Dellis.

Jacques van Heerden (Fichardtpark) scored for Free State.

The second match of the day saw KZN Inland against Western Province, one of the favourites following their first two matches.

Inland did not allow them to settle and they were hassled into making errors. The first goal came after WP were awarded a penalty corner in the 10th minute and Ryan Crowe (Wynberg) made sure to put them into the lead.

Each side was awarded a penalty corner in the half, but the Inland shot was well stopped by Matthew Martins (Fairmont) and the WP corner went wide.

The second half saw Inland tightening their game and with better passing they had the better of the half, but an unfortunate stop with a foot in front of the goal saw WP awarded a penalty stroke.

Michael Wright (Bishops) stepped up to the mark and gave Jake Abbema (Hilton) no chance putting Province into a 2-0 lead.

In the last two minutes Inland were awarded a penalty corner and Peabo Lembethe put the ball into the top corner to close the gap.

Inland again forced a PC on full time, but the shot hit the upright to give WP a 2-1 win.

Inland then had to play the last game of the day against Southern Free State who had been pulverised by Coastals in the first game.

At half time the locals led 2-1 with the first goal by Tevan Kok (Maritzburg College).

Free State equalised when Devon Cornelisson (St Andrews) found the back of the net.

A penalty corner awarded to the home side towards the end of the half was used well when Jarryd Edy (Hilton) scored to put Inland into a deserved lead at the break.

In the second half Callum Brown (College) scored to increase the lead to 3-1 from a penalty corner.

Another College player Amkelwa Lefuka scored a field goal, but Free State pulled it back when they scored through Matthew Ramos (St Andrews).

Kok scored his second and a goal from Gareth Macaskill (Michaelhouse) completed Inlands 7-2 win.

Other A section scores: Northerns 5 SWD 0; W Province B 1 E Province 1; Boland 2 E Gauteng 1; Amathole 1 S Gauteng 3.
