SA U18 men blow half-time lead

2008-08-13 00:00

AFTER Tuesday’s 1-1 draw, the SA fans were quietly confident when the home country went into the break with a 2-1 lead in yesterday afternoon’s second U18 boys’ hockey Test at Maritzburg College.

Australia’s stars were the exceptionally talented Andrew Newman and captain Jacob Whetton, who ensured the home defence was pulled to pieces after the break. At times, it seemed strong defender Matt McGillivray was the lone ranger in support of pressured SA goalkeeper Thuthuka Goba as the boys from Down Under penetrated the danger zone almost at will. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
