Dominant: Glenwood end win drought

2013-08-06 00:00

GLENWOOD hosted Maritzburg College on Saturday at the Three Schools’ Astro.

After losing narrowly up at College and enjoying a recent run of good form, the hockey first XI were quietly confident they could record the victory against College that had eluded them for a decade.

Glenwood were quick out of the blocks, mounting an attack down the right-hand side that saw Tanner Bottomley linking with Dayne Naidoo, who drew their keeper out of position

before slipping the ball across to Andile Phehlukwayo.

Unfortunately he was unable to convert.

Three minutes later, it was the same pairing of Naidoo and Phehlukwayo that gave Glenwood the lead when Naidoo crossed from within the “D” to Phehlukwayo, who guided the ball past the College keeper.

Glenwood dominated the first half but were unable to extend their lead before the break.

College responded well in the second half and increased the tempo of the game significantly.

Glenwood keeper Michael

Labuschagne was called into

action several times and managed to keep the College strikers at bay.

When the final whistle blew, Glenwood had finally broken a decade-long drought at first team level and deservedly took the spoils 1-0.
