KOWIE United rugby club’s first team was vic­to­ri­ous in two re­cent clashes.

On July 21, the Kowie United beat East­ern Rugby Club 16-7 af­ter trail­ing 7-6 in the first half, club pres­i­dent Le­ston Hilpert said.

Their goals came from the likes of Ma­son Brookes who scored two penalty con­ver­sions. Alvin Died­er­icks also booked his name on the score sheet.

Last week­end they played Swal­lows in Gra­ham­stown where they achieved an even big­ger vic­tory of 63-10.

Putting their names on the score sheet were Ma­son Brookes who scored one penalty plus five con­ver­sions and two tries; Shane Swartz who scored two tries; Claude Marais two tries; cap­tain Fazel Daniels one try, and Clay­ton Arends, Dayne Ruiters and Alvin Died­er­icks who had one try each.

Kowie United’s se­cond team did not fare as well when they played East­ern Rugby Club, suf­fer­ing a de­feat of 15-5.

The first team is hop­ing to con­tinue with its good form on Satur­day (Au­gust 4) when they play Old Col­le­gians at home.

Kowie United also has a net­ball team and the ladies will face BUCO.

“We are go­ing to sell ham­burg­ers and chips to as­sist with trav­el­ling cost for the next games” he said. He ap­pealed for pub­lic sup­port.

Hilpert ac­knowl­edged the vi­tal role of spon­sors for the team. “We want to thank Stenden Univer­sity for trans­port,” he said.

“We also want to thank BUCO for spon­sor­ing us with 50 T-shirts for warm up and spon­sor­ing paint for the field mark­ings for the whole year.”

Warm up T-shirts help the team when they do ex­er­cises just be­fore the games kicks off.

Hilpert was also grate­ful to Shakatak who showed up when needed most. ”Shakatak spon­sored us T-shirts dur­ing the 10 Tour­na­ment,” he said.

Other spon­sors were JJ from Britto’s, Eldie Marais and Sasko.
