Kearsney face a tough few games

2012-06-09 00:00

THE hockey fixtures follow the rugby each Saturday unless one of the top schools are playing against a school not known for their hockey.

This weekend Hilton are playing Clifton, but the other big schools follow the rugby fixtures.

Kearsney can justly claim to be the top side in the province at this stage as they have not yet lost against a KZN school.

This will make their last few games fairly tense as they try to remain unbeaten.

Today against Westville, the visitors will be doing their utmost to unseat Kearsney. However, playing on their home pitch and with the confidence of having beaten College last Saturday, they will be favourites.

The previous week, College had beaten Westville.

The game at Glenwood where they play Maritzburg College will also be a keen tussle. Glenwood dominate the selections in the U18 Coastal team as College do in the Inland team.

There will be some talented players pitted against one another and Glenwood will be keen to upset the favourites. This could transpire if they put enough pressure on the College midfield where they seem to be most vulnerable. After losing last week they are likely to come back with a sparkling display.

St Charles travel to Northwood, and away from home they do not seem as effective. Northwood have a better record at home and this points to a win for the Durban side.

Michaelhouse have done well this season and they should be the favourites against their hosts DHS. The latter have had an indifferent season, having not yet won a match against another KZN side.

Hilton, another team to have struggled this season, play against Clifton.

The latter have had similar results to the Midlands side and they are not expected to do well. It will be a major feather in their cap if they manage to beat Hilton.
