KEARSNEY FESTIVAL DAY 2, MATCH 6 RESULT

GLENWOOD HIGH SCHOOL 8 – 20 HOERSKOOL DR EG JANSEN

Hoërskool Dr EG Jansen eased to a 20-8 win over Glenwood High School in the penultimate game of Day 2.

EG Jansen’s slick backline play and offensive organisation underpinned their performance, with Matthew Bergman controlling the tempo sublimely from first-receiver and his combination with centres Steven Williams and Jeandre Jacobs causing Glenwood all sorts of problems.

The Green Machine started brightly enough, asking a lot of questions with ball in hand, but it wasn’t long before the Boksburg boys found their rhythm through their powerful mauling and ball carrying.

Some typically accurate passing amongst the backs provided TK Ngobese with enough room to score Egies’ opener, but a Leo Weber penalty reduced the gap almost immediately.

After setting up shop deep inside Glenwood territory, Danre Pike scored off the back of a rolling maul before Zaide-Leigh Rippenaar touched down for the last say of the first-half.

Glenwood found themselves under even more pressure after the break and struggled to make anything happen after being starved of the ball and any meaningful field position. They could find no way through the opposition defence and largely resorted to aimless kicking when they did have possession.

Riekus van der Merwe scored EG Jansen’s fourth of the afternoon with Caleb Reeding going over for Glenwood’s first and only try with time up on the clock.
