KZN Raiders out of top 4

2014-08-29 00:00

TUFFY Western Province, the defending champions, will play Western Province Peninsula in the second semi-final at 4.30 pm today. The brave WP second stringers, struggling with injuries which required a replacement to be flown in, were superb in a 2-2 draw with last year’s finalists Southern Gauteng to finish second in Pool B, ensuring that the host province’s fancied KZN Coastal Raiders would not make the last four.

Whatever their results today and tomorrow, Pens will finish in the top four at IPT for the first time.

Southern Gauteng will meet Northern Blues in the first semi-final at 2.30 pm.

Tomorrow’s title match is at 4.30 pm.

Raiders, who beat KZN Inland 5-0, will now play Eastern Province in the first round of matches in the playoffs for fifth to eighth positions at 10.30 am today, while KZN Inland tackle South Gauteng Wits at 12.30 pm.

There is some consolation for the host province as KZN Coastal Mynahs and KZN Coastal Robins are both through to the B Section, or promotion division and semi-finals and the Durbanites are consequently assured of cheering on one side at least in a key match. Robins meet Free State at 6.30 pm in the second of the B Section semi-finals. Mynahs face North West at 11.30 am in the semi at Three Schools Trust.
