St Charles beat long-time football rivals Kearsney

2011-07-26 00:00

WHEN rugby and hockey fixtures are completed the schools begin playing football, and so for most of this term the schools associated with the KwaZulu-Natal High Schools Association will be involved in football matches.

St Charles College built on a successful leap tournament, which was held at Kloof early last week, with a solid win over rivals Kearsney College. The latter lost in the semi-final at Kloof. In an open game of football, which showed a lot of early-season rustiness, play moved from one end to the other, giving a sizeable crowd plenty of enjoyment.

Both sides had their chances with Kearsney having the better of the first half, but missing a few chances with wayward kicks. In the second half, St Charles started applying more pressure, with midfielder Uli Fischer prominent. The only goal of the match came with just a few minutes remaining, when Bradley Fotabong scored from a deflection off a powerful shot from Fischer.

Glenwood 1st XI has been busy, although their tour to East London was largely washed out. They did play two of the scheduled games and beat a Beacon Bay select side 2-1, and then a combined Selborne and East London High School team 4-3 in icy, wet conditions.
