QUARTER RUN NOT AN EASY TASK

Last night was the quarter finals in the Steinhoff UCT Internal League, with all 16 teams in action on the night. Teams knew it was not going to be an easy outing with the knock-out stage now in place.

Steinhoff Wild Boys was up against Spanners in the first match of the evening.  This too was the first Section A clash as both teams where playing for a spot in the Semi’s. It was a balance match with half the time scores leved at 05 – 05, with tries from Carl Lewis for Spanners and newly recruited Luke Wright for Wild Boys. It was how ever the try of Substitute Roland Heideman that won the match for the Wild Boys.
Steinhoff Panthers played a blinder against Steinhoff Ikhaya as they won their match comfortably with a 12 try riot. It tries where coming in at will, Ikhaya looked a depleted team as only the referee’s whistle saved them from the 100 point riot that Panthers where planning on.
Steinhoff Magic Lions had a tough encounter as they played Steinhoff Clarendon. Another tight match saw the Lions scrap through as Clarendon where pushing until the end. Time unfortunately was not on their side as they now have to contend playing for pride in section A.
Stienhoff Nadoes and Steinhoff Cobras didn’t have it all their way against their some what weaker opponents. Steinhoff Ubumbo who where without most of their key players due to injury held the Cobras for the most of 15 minutes in the first half. The Cobras did how ever find momentum and score six try’s pass Steinhoff Ubumbo. The Nadoes match was a similar affair against Steinhoff Catsville as they to had to be patient for the first try coming in similar time to that of the cobras. Once they got going the try’s almost came at will.
On the evening it was a good showing from all the teams as this league keeps growing in strength. Next week sees Section B playing their Semi Finals with all participants in that section in action while Section A is on a bye.
