2012-07-10 00:00

IT was a good start for the local KZN Inland sides who played the opening matches at the U16 Hockey IPT.

The A section matches take place on Papes at Maritzburg College and the B section matches on the adjacent AB Jackson turf. Both A and B Inland sides got the tournament off at 7.45 am on a chilly Maritzburg morning.

Pool A in the A section has teams who were placed one, four, five, eight, nine and 12 at last years’s tournament and the other teams in the B pool. Both KZN Inland and Coastals are in the A pool with Western Province A, North Gauteng, SWD and Southern Free State.

Inland played SWD in the first match and they struggled to get the ball forward, but won 2-1. Marc Knoble (St Charles) and Peabo Lembethe (M College) were the goal scorers.

The Inland B side showed better control, winning 3-1 against Northern Free State. All three goals were scored by Gareth Obery (Hilton).

KZN Coastals A were involved in the second match of the morning in the A pool against North Gauteng and they also got off to a good start, scoring three goals in the first half, by Andile Phelukwayo (Glenwood), Jacques Bleeker (Westville) and James Dellis (Glenwood). Another three in the second half, by Tanner Bottomley (Glenwood), Nqobile Ntuli (Kearsney) and a second for Phelukwayo gave them a 6-1 win. Then in the afternoon they played SWD and won 4-0, with Phelukwayo again scoring a brace, and Dellis and Ntuli scoring again.

Scores from the B section were not available at the time of going to press.

The game to see today is at 1.05 pm when KZN Inland and Coastals play one another in Pool A at Maritzburg College.

All the other A section scores:

S Gauteng 3 EP 1; WP B 4 Boland 3; WP A 6 S Free State 1; Amathole 2 E Gauteng 0.
