KZN Coastals placed at top of their pool

2013-07-09 00:00

THE SA Schools Inter-Provincial Hockey Tournaments took place last week, with the U18 in Cape Town centred at Rondebosch BHS and the U16 in Johannesburg centred at St John’s College.

KZN Coastals had the better ­results of the two KZN regions.

Coastals were placed at the top of their pool in the U18 A section, after winning all four matches and then beating Amathole in the play-offs.

On the final day, they had to face Western Province, the winners of the other pool, and were unable to beat them, with Western Province winning 3-1.

Western Province were ahead 1-0 at the break, but doubled their score early in the second half.

Just minutes later, Coastals hit back when Stephan McManus (Northwood) scored, but thereafter it was Western Province who put on the pressure and scored again.

Even though they came close, KZN could not capitalise on their opportunities.

Inland won only one match in their pool, with two draws and a loss against Western Province.

They beat Eastern Province B in the play-offs and then lost against Boland 1-0 to be placed sixth. Coastals B were also in the A section and in the same pool as their A team.

They did not have a happy time as they lost all their pool games and then lost in the play-offs resulting in demotion to the B section next year.

Inland B, who were in the A section last year and were demoted, were not able to get back to the A section, but did admirably to be placed third in the B section, winning 3-1 against EP B.

In Johannesburg, the KZN Inland sides had slightly better results than the Coastal sides.

Inland A won four of their five pool matches, losing 2-3 against Coastals. The latter won all their pool games.
