THE final match on day two of the Men’s Interprovincial Tournament at the Absa NWU-Puk Hockey Stadium in a thankfully sunny Potchefstroom yesterday saw a fired-up Southern Gauteng beat an outstanding SA U21 side 4-3, while KZN Midlands outlasted EP Settlers 4-0. Defending champions WP led 3-1 at half-time. KZN Midlands banked on getting the better of EP Settlers without calling on the services of their SA players Darryn Gallagher and Tommy Hammond. The gamble paid off as Midlands earned a brace of goals in each half for their 4-0 win and saved their stars for another day. The national players are only allowed to play four matches out of seven, as SA coach Gregg Clark wants them to be fresh for the Four Nations tournament in Beijing just after IPT.
