This year’s USSA 7’s tournament was held in George from the 1st till 2nd of November 2014. The Ikeys 7’s team played their first game against WSU and won 38 – 19. Their 2nd game was against NWU Vaal and they won that match 55 – 0. Their 3rd match they came up against TUT which they brushed aside 47 – 5. A tough encounter against Tuks to which they lost 5 – 24 proved to be the side’s only blemish in the pool games.
This meant that the team progressed to the Cup Quarter-Finals and were pitted up against the old nemesis Maties, unfortunately the team lost that encounter 5 – 19. This meant that the team would play in the Plate competition. There they met a strong Pukke side in the Semis. They lost the game 0 – 24.
Overall the team ended in 8th place out of 24 teams and thus qualified for the Varsity Sports 7’s which will take place in 2015. Well done boys!
