KEARSNY FESTIVAL RESULT DAY 2, MATCH 5

HOëRSKOOL FRAMESBY 17 – 22 HOëRSKOOL MONUMENT

Hoërskool Monument produced a comeback of note to down Hoërskool Framesby 22-17 in game five of Day 2.

Framesby had dominated the first 45-odd minutes and looked to be well on their way to achieving a remarkable upset win, but Monument had other ideas and ultimately found their voice to deliver a statement victory.

The boys in red and blue bounced back from an early Logan Muller penalty miss when Johan van Zyl scored the game’s opening try 10 minutes in. They had been all over Monnas up to that point without much reward, but when Damion Witbooi touched down from an intercept, the scoreboard began to take on a more accurate reflection.

After their slow start, Monument were slowly starting to make some headway and create several opportunities with ball in hand. Their industry finally paid off when Geoffrey French dotted down but, at that stage, their chances were few and far between.

The boys from Krugersdorp struggled to get out of their own half in that first 30, with unforced errors and accurate game management from Framesby keeping them pinned deep inside their territory.

Louis Gerber’s side picked up where they left off early in the second-half, with Muller slotting a penalty to extend the lead, but, after playing second fiddle for virtually the entire contest, Monument began to pick up steam.

From practically nowhere, two tries from the electric Ernesto Oersen and one to RJ Barnard put Monnas in front, from which they never looked back.
