EP bounce back to win B division
Eastern Province, relegated from the A division after failing to win a match last year, took B division honours at Benoni CC with the team of Ace Nqana, George Koen, Frans Kana, Willie Prince, Patrick Totyi, Mzuyanda Zingela, Colin Mavuso and David Konzani. They dropped one point, a 6-6 half with Free State the final day. They had a 7-5 win over runners-up Northern Cape, who improved vastly on their 2014 debut. Northern Cape and Free State, formerly part of the same union, had a 6-6 half the first day, and ended up with the exact same points.
Mavuso had a wonderful week for EP, winning all his foursomes and singles (at No 2) for 10 points, sharing MVP honours with Northern Cape’s Conrad de Beer who had the same record. Other players to win all five of their singles were Border’s Tebello Simon, Kobus van den Berg (Limpopo) and George Bezuidenhout (Boland).
