Midlands do well at soccer

2012-07-03 00:00

THE annual Kloof High Soccer Festival was held last week during the first two days of the June holidays. Thirteen schools from all over KZN attended the festival.

Due to this being pre-season for most of the schools who play their soccer in the upcoming third term, the format was strictly “festival”. There were no group stage and knockout games, but rather a series of fixtures lined up for the teams and coaches to try out various players in their extended squads in preparation for the more competitive fixtures ahead.

The Midlands region was well represented by Alexandra High, St Charles, Maritzburg College and Michaelhouse. In fact it took home most of the awards that were handed out by the festival convenors.

Selected results (Midlands teams):

Hillcrest 0 – Alex 4; Kloof 1 – St Charles 4; Michaelhouse 1 – Maritzburg College 0; Grantleigh 3 – St Charles 2; Maritzburg College 5 – Kingsway 0; Alex 2 – Maritzburg College 0; DHS 0 – Michaelhouse 10; Alex 2 – St Charles 0; Port Shepstone 0 – Alex 5; DHS 0 – Maritzburg College 5; Maritzburg College 1 – St Charles 0; Kingsway 0 – St Charles 3.

Most Professional Team: Maritzburg College

Fair Play Team: St Charles College

Nine players from the Midlands schools were chosen for a “festival select squad”: Z.Dlamini, C. Phillips, K.Harrison (all Michaelhouse); Q.Matlabo, N.Shelembe (Alex), B.Shandu, P.Hlophe (Maritzburg College), J.Camp, D.Kroney (St Charles)

Goal of the Festival: Q.Cele (Maritzburg College)

Saves of the Festival: S.Mkhize (Alex) and S.Nzula (Maritzburg College)
