Ikeys lose final battle

UCT lacked some firepower when they took on old foes Maties on Friday night and went down to the strong visitors albeit a committed performance. Maties who had called up a number of provincial players put on the pressure and were rewarded with a rare away win on the Green Mile, beating UCT 36:13.

The UCT evening had begun on a high with the newly crowned league winners U20 A1 Trojans proving their case by beating their Maties counterparts.

The Ikey Tigers started well and piled on the pressure off the kick-off, a penalty was rewarded and UCT were up 3:0 after not even two minutes. Maties however struck back immediately capitalising on a mistake at the restart, when flyhalf Conrad Hofmann took the ball to the line and beat the defense to score.

UCT had a bit of wind in their backs, which Rosslee used to add three further points, but Maties scored another try and again from close range and took a handy lead into half-time.
The Ikeys found a bit more cohesion early in the second half and converted a pressure phase of several phases into 7 points, when Ash Wells crossed the line in the corner.

Maties with the wind in their backs pushed the Ikeys into their half – UCT were now forced to move the ball and try and create opportunities to overcome the deficite. Mistakes were punished and the Stellenbosch students came close and were awarded a penalty that was quickly taken by the scrumhalf who caught the defense off side to score. 

With minutes to go UCT had a great break in the midfield with lock Bodo Sieber taking the ball deep into the Maties 22. The luckless Ikeys should have scored off that move, but it was Maties who turned the ball over and moved it back into Ikeys territory to score. Maties were deserved winner, but this was a 14 point turn around in the final moments and what could have been a 20:29 loss was taken into the 30s. 

UCT’s man of the match was again center Dave Edgar who has found excellent form so late in the season after he had some injuries earlier on. The moment of the match was without a doubt the third half fines meeting which was also enjoyed by some Maties guests who weren’t scared to get in the mix.

Stellenbosch finished second on the WP Super League log and UCT ended third,  new WP champions, Hamilton’s won the 2009 Club Champs Final against Pukke, on Saturday.

Kicks: Rosslee 2 Pens, 1 Con

    Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my
    4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.”
    She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
