Action from the penultimate Monument - Westville clash

 

KEARSNEY FESTIVAL RESULT DAY 3, MATCH 6

HOERSKOOL MONUMENT 22 -25 WESTVILLE BOYS’ HIGH

In one of the biggest upsets of the festival, an inspired Westville Boys’ High School performance lifted them to a hard-fought 25-22 win over Hoërskool Monument in the penultimate match of Day 3.

Monnas were on top in the possession and territory stakes in the first half but just couldn’t make it count. They were later made to rue that inability to turn pressure into points as Njabulo Zulu’s outfit made the most of their limited opportunities, to race into a lead from which they never looked back.

Westville defended superbly in the first 20 minutes, absorbing everything Monument threw at them after the boys in white set up camp deep inside their territory. They were rewarded for their stoicism when Unathi Mlotshwa kicked a penalty to put the KZN side in front, but it would get even better a few moments later.

A Monument set play was intercepted by Jadrian Afrikaner, who ran in from his own half unopposed, before Jade-Will Koopman raced through for his team’s second try in quick succession as Westville took an unlikely 15-0 lead into half-time.

Michael Satade extended the Westville lead with another score, before Kealan Milton and Keenan Myners dragged two back for the Witbulle.

Mlotshwa’s second penalty all but wrapped up the result, despite late tries to Milton and Vincent Robberts.
