Neck-and-neck race for KZN Coastal Premier League honours

2012-02-23 00:00

WHILE the KwaZulu-Natal Inland Premier League sits out another weekend, there has been plenty happening in the KZN Coastal Premier League in Durban.

And in the KZN capital, umpiring and linear scoring courses are being held from March 9 to March 12 at the Maritzburg Oval, bringing much-needed officials into the game from the schools, including teachers and pupils.

Meanwhile, with one round of the KZN Coastal Premier League left, defending champions Crusaders have pencilled in their name for the National Club Championship at the end of the season.

The neck-and-neck race for league honours has seen Saders finally put a promising seven-point gap between themselves and closest rivals Chatsworth Sporting, this after they hammered African Warriors by nine wickets last weekend.

Sporting did not help themselves, being outplayed by 135 runs by third-placed Berea Rovers.

This Sunday, Saders host fifth-placed Topham, and will fancy their chances of another win, while Sporting travel to Lahee Park to face third-last Pinetown.
