College clash in Pretoria

2012-07-28 00:00

THE two hockey matches involving KwaZulu-Natal school sides both take place in Pretoria. Affies made the trip to Pietermaritzburg last weekend and will have another hard game, but at home against Glenwood.

Just a stone’s throw away, Maritzburg College play Pretoria Boys’ High (PBHS). College had a good start to the season at the Nomads Festival in East London, where although they lost the first match against Wynberg, they won the next four of the five games.

Wynberg have since proved to be one of the top sides in the country.

The first match of the second term was against today’s opponents PBHS, were they lost 1-2.

Today College will want to not only reverse the first result, but also hammer home a more convincing win.

With two SA school’s players in Tim Guise-Brown and Lihle Mafilike and three SA U16 players, Tyson Dlungwana, Tim Halle and Peaboy Lembethe, they have a big advantage and will not be caught napping.

The home side will not make it easy, but they do not have the individual talents that are available to the visitors.

Much will depend on how they combine and let the ball do most of the work. It should be a fast-moving game, which will please hockey lovers.

Glenwood have a number of players that were represented in the KZN Coastal U18 and U16 teams.

They have two SA School representatives, one in U18, Daniel Sibbald and one in U16 in Andile Phehlukwayo, who could give them the upperhand. Affies were put to the sword by College last Saturday as they lost by six goals.

The home side have not had a good season as they have won just one game, drawn three and lost the rest of their 15 matches. This includes losses against Hilton and DHS, both of which were beaten by Glenwood.
