PMB Varsity and Collegians score excellent Super League wins

2012-05-24 00:00

THERE were excellent wins for the Maritzburg Varsity and Collegians hockey sides in the KZN Super League action over the past week.

At Varsity, the PMB lads accounted for a 5-0 win over Durban Varsity, after leading 2-0 at the half time.

It was difficult to put one’s finger on why the scores were so different, but the PMB lads’ captain, Jethro Eustice, and new player/coach Craig Haley made a conscious effort to slow the game down, while the frenetic pace set by the students from Durban counted against them.

The Durban lads hurried with their shots and tackles, enabling the skilful PMB boys to take full advantage and gain control of the match.

The winners scored goals through in-form former Durban Varsity forward Sihle Ntuli and Haley, Ndumiso Mncwango, Damien Kimfley and Njabulo Zondi.

It was a hard-fought game in which both sides could have found the back of the net quite a few more times, had it not been for the brilliant keeping of PMB stopper Joel Barron and a few fine save from opposite number Richard Curtis.

St Charles product Matt Boote had a good game for Durban.

PMB Varsity face a big challenge to their title hopes when they tackle Riverside at 7.45 pm tomorrow in Durban North.

Meanwhile, PMB Collegians waltzed into a 3-0 half-time lead against Rovers in Durban, with player/coach Gavin Jelley finding the mark, along with Gift Buys and Matt Coombes. However, the Rovers came back hard after the break, and JJ Reed (2) and Mathew Madsen levelled the scores before Mike Craig nailed the winner for Collegians three minutes from time.

Collegians face Pinetown at 7.30 pm at Queensmead in Durban tomorrow and will be looking to build up more points.
