Crinums’ reign over

2017-06-07 06:02

This year’s Brutal Fruit Netball Premier League champions turned out brutal for the three-time winners, the Free State’s Crinums.

This is after they crushed out of the competition, ending their reign. The Crinums lost to an equally determined Western Cape team, the Southern Stings, with 42-52 in a must-win play-offs fixture for both teams. This match was played on Friday (02/06) at the Mangaung Indoor Sport Centre.

The Stings’ victory earned them a spot in the semi-final that will feature the Flames of North West, and two Gauteng teams, the Golden Fireballs and the Jaguars.

The top-seeded four teams will compete for a slot in the final to be played on Sunday (11/06) with the losers thereof fighting for third and fourth position, respectively. A new floating trophy will be unveiled at the grand finale.

Saturday’s semi-final will see the Stings clash with the Jaguars and the Flames battling it out against the Fireballs. Tickets for the semi-final and final fixtures on Saturday and Sunday will be sold for R20 per person.
