Semi Final Delight

Steinhoff Shebeen Boys now face Steinhoff Panthers in The Plate Final after hard fought wins against Steinhoff Turtles and Steinhoff Smuts.

 
Steinhoff Shebeen Boys might have won their match with a three try margin, but its sure no true reflection of that match. The Steinhoff Turtles team consisting of UCT U19 players in the form of Big John, Steven White in the pack dominated the scrums as turtles kept pressing forward. The where numerous times that Big Jon had break the defensive line of the Steinhoff shebeen boys with his aggressive running style just to be stop inces from the try line with Shebeen then winning the balls in the ruck. Steinhoff Shebeen Boys however used their experience and took full advantage of Steinhoff Turtles mistakes. It how ever was one of the better matches in this specific section for quite some time.
Steinhoff Panthers also had a very tough game against Steinhoff Smuts who has improved every single step of the way in this 2011 campaign. Steinhoff Panthers knew they had to score early and put Steinhoff Smuts on the back foot and so they did. Steinhoff Smuts however never allowing them to be unsettled then scored a try of their own levelling matters. Panthers then furthered their lead but the guts Smuts team kept pegging away and was reward for their hard work. Steinhoff Panthers however held their nerves regardless of them allowing Steinhoff Smuts to score in the later stage of the match.
Steinhoff CVU had a good run against Steinhoff Ikhaya beating them 51 – 00. It was a better looking Steinhoff Ikhaya team who has much to learn when it comes to defensive structures. They looked good on attack when ever they where allowed to but shaky on defence and the Vikings took full advantage of this.
The only Section A match played on the evening was the one against Steinhoff Claredon and Steinhoff Cats. This too was a fair competition between the two teams as the match could have gone anyway. Steinhoff Claredon however used their chances well and silly handling errors by Steinhoff Cats caused them the match. A tough match for Steinhoff Claredon but they pulled it off quite brilliantly.
