2015-04-30 15:16

The L.D. Josephs Shield klawerjas competition started on a high note last week at the VW PeoplePavilion.

Phoenix Klawerjas Club, led by captain Roderick Thomas, had a good win against Kings B Team scoring 98-84.

Adam Briesies and Daniel “Knaap” Lentoor of Kings KC narrowly beat Keith August and Pervu Costa 26-22.

Patrick Baartman and Roderick Thomas had a slow start, but eventually ran out winners against Wellington Mila and Colin White by 26-20. Elrado Jansen and Richard Webb made sure to keep Cecil Uithaler and Henry Zeekoei at bay to add 24-14 points.

De Porres Bruiners and partner Lawrence Josephs were unlucky to slip-up at the end to lose 28-30 against Joey Schultz and Elroy Wiltshire.

As a result of shift working, Kings A Team was not strong enough for Cats KC and lost 80-60.

Nevertheless, klawerjas was the winner and the game was played in a good spirit.

According to Patrick Baartman, a few new players joined the Uitenhage Klawerjas Union.

They are, however, still looking for more youngsters to learn the game of klawerjas
