Football rules the day for KZN sides

THE two KZN sides Maritzburg College and Glenwood both won against their Pretoria opponents, Pretoria Boys’ High School and Affies, respectively.

Pretoria BHS 1 Maritzburg College 3

College pulled off the double against PBHS in Pretoria, winning 3-1 after winning 4-0 at home early in the season. PBHS, who had put Grey College to the sword last Saturday, were intent in gaining revenge.

After camping in the PBHS 22-metre area for 20 minutes, as well as hitting the upright twice and side netting once, it was the home team that ventured down to the College circle to earn the first penalty corner of the game. This was initially saved by Lihle Mafilika in the College goal, but thereafter converted as the College defence failed to clear the keeper’s pads. College hit back two minutes later when, in the 24th minute, Grant Glutz entered the circle and with a powerful backhand found the roof of the net. This put College on level terms going into the break.

The second half saw College continue their domination, but it was only in the 52nd minute that they earned their second penalty corner. Glutz’s flick was parried by Bosch in the PBHS goal, but the quick-reacting College captain, Nicholas Berichon, latched onto the rebound to put College 2-1 in front. After the restart, College regained possession and almost immediately Glutz stole the ball off a PBHS defender to beat the goalkeeper from an acute angle to put his team 3-1 in front with seven minutes remaining. The two goals by College striker Glutz saw him equal the College record of 48 goals in a season.

Glenwood 2 Affies 1

No report was received from Glenwood but the game was played on Friday evening after Affies had arrived late after they were held up by an accident on the N3. Thus they could not have been fully prepared for the game.

Glenwood took a 2-0 lead, but Affies came back strongly in the second half to score a goal to make it a 2-1 win for the home side.
