Leading scorer Kimfley at it again

2013-05-24 00:00

IN recent KZN Inland Premier League action, South Africa U21 striker Damian Kimfley, the top goal-scorer at the recent SA U21 Nationals in Pretoria, put five past Collegians seconds.

Varsity won 13-0 after leading 9-0 at half-time and followed their hard-fought victory over Collegians firsts.

In another men’s match, Varsity seconds beat Olympics 3-1 with Dumo Mncwango bagging a brace.

KZN Inland Women’s Premier League fare saw Varsity “A” beat Country Districts 3-0, Varsity “B” defeat Standard 3-1 and the busy Varsity “B” side beat Collegians “A” 4-2.

Tonight Varsity “A” take on Country Districts at 7 pm at Varsity, while tomorrow it’s Varsity firsts men versus Varsity seconds at 3 pm at Varsity and Standard’s women against Varsity B at the AB Jackson Greenfields Turf at 3 pm.

On Sunday the Olympics men play Collegians II at 11 am at the ABJ, while on Tuesday it’s the Collegians “A” women’s side versus Collegians “B” at 5.30 pm at the ABJ.

KZN Coastal Super League action in Durban saw former Maritzburg College captain Andrew Manson net six goals in Rovers’ 10-1 win over Gongs.

Other men’s results saw Kearsney defeat Munies 7-0 and UKZN Durban beat Pinetown 4-1. Women’s fare saw Durban Collegians II beat their “A” side twice and Riverside II edge Pinetown 2-1.

The pick of the weekend matches will be reigning champs Riverside against Rovers at 3.30 pm at the Riverside Sports Club in Durban North.

The World Student Games take place in Kazan, Russia, from July 6 to 17 and the chances of UKZN students being in the University Sport South Africa (SAU) side are strong.

UKZN sports officer for hockey, the Pietermaritzburg-based Reggie Smith, is the manager of the SAU side for the Russian games, with former Maritzburg College and UKZN player/coach Darryn Gallagher the head coach. Besides UKZN students such as Kimfley and the nationally capped Robin Jones, there are recent scholars from the KZN capital also in with a shout.

Old school-mates — former Maritzburg College goalkeeper Rene de la Peyre, defender Matthew Guise-Brown and striker Grant Glutz (all at UP-Tuks in Pretoria) — are all strong contenders for the SAU team.

Guise-Brown, Glutz and Jones have a chance to be selected for the senior national team that goes to the World League semi-finals in Johor Bahru in Malaysia in June/July, which would prevent them from going to Russia. London 2012 Olympian Clint Panther, now at the University of Johannesburg, is a certainty for the senior SA side.
