2008-07-02 00:00

AFTER a competitive third day’s play in the Girls U16 hockey interprovincial tournament at the AB Jackson GreenFields Turf Wednesday, the A and B Section semi-finalists were decided.

The in-form KZN Coastals line-up secured a top-tier A Section semi-final spot and a chance at the 2008 title with a 1-0 victory against Free State A, the lone goal of the match going to Kate Koenig after there was no score at the half-time break.

KZN will play East Cape B in the first semi-final at the ABJ at 11 am today, while the second semi sees South Gauteng tackle Free State A at 12.30 pm.

In the lower-tier B Section, host province KZN Midlands made their way to the semi-finals with a 4-0 win over Free State B, the goals coming from Rachel Froneman (2), Taryn Mallet and Lana Kruger. Midlands led 3-0 at half-time.

The host province meet Limpopo in the second B Section semi-final at 3.30 pm, while Free State B face East Gauteng in the first B Section semi-final at 2 pm.

Friday’s finals at the ABJ sees the B Section showdown at 11 am and the A Section clash at 12.15 pm.


A Section: E Cape A 1 North Gauteng 1; WP 2 Boland 3; South Gauteng 3 East Cape B 3; Free State A 0 KZN Coastals 1.

B Section: Limpopo 0 East Gauteng 1; North Cape 0 SWD 0; North West 4 Mpumalanga 2; KZN Midlands 4 Free State B 0.

Meanwhile, the third day of the Boys’ U16 hockey interprovincial tournament threw up some interesting results in Cape Town yesterday, writes JONATHAN COOK.

As this is a round-robin tournament, every match counts and goal difference could play a huge role in final classification come tomorrow’s last matches — so you leave anything to chance at your peril.

In the A Section, Border beat KZN Midlands 2-1 and continued to impress, but went down 2-1 to hosts Western Province in the late game.

Province had an excellent day with a 3-0 win over Free State in earlier day three action.


A Section: KZN Midlands 1 Border 2; EP 1 South Gauteng 1; Free State 0 WP 3; KZN Coastal 3 North Gauteng 0; EP 1 KZN Midlands 4; Border 1 WP 2.

B Section: North West 6 North Free State 0; Boland 0 SWD 2; East Gauteng 3 Mpumalanga 0; North Cape 1 Limpopo 1; North West 1 SWD 1; Mpumalanga 1 North Free State 1.
