Solution needs to be found for weaker sides in KZN Inland hockey

2013-06-18 00:00

WRAPPING up recent action in KZN club hockey in both Durban and Pietermaritzburg, one can’t help seeing the huge victories of the stronger sides over the weaker opponents in the KZN capital.

This can’t be good for KZN Inland hockey and a solution needs to be found if the proud history of success in what has been one of the most fertile breeding grounds of national players is to continue.

In PMB, the Collegians first side beat Varsity seconds 16-1 in KZN Inland men’s premier league, with provincial sharpshooter Gavin Jelley bagging six goals, Gift Buys five, Grade 10 Maritzburg College schoolboy Bryce Tullis three goals and James Thomas another three strikes on target. And in KZN Inland Women’s Premier League fare, Varsity A beat PMB Collegians A 15-0 with provincial strikers Ros Flint and Vicky Jonker each netting five goals.

Down in Durban’s KZN Coastal Super League it is better: Rovers beat Gongs 3-2 while Munies and Pinetown drew 3-3 with Maritzburg College old boy Brian Gravett getting a brace for the highway side, Pinetown. Women’s results saw Rovers edge Durban varsity 3-2; Durban Collegians I beat Pinetown 6-1; Riverside edge beat Durban Collegians II 4-2 and Kearsney shade Rovers 3-1.
