Low scor­ing af­fair at Mick Kelly

Zululand Observer - Monday - - ZO SPORT - Richard Springo­rum

MIDDLEBURG Pri­mary School sneaked in a 5-0 vic­tory in slip­pery con­di­tions over Em­pan­geni Prepara­tory School in an U13 rugby match played at Mick Kelly Park on Thurs­day.

The vis­i­tors man­aged to even­tu­ally find a gap in the lo­cal team’s solid de­fence late in the first half.

The only try of the game came from a penalty tap five me­tres out that saw the vis­it­ing prop for­ward crash over.

Em­pan­geni Prep bounced back in the sec­ond half and camped in their op­po­nents’ half and were un­lucky not to cap­i­talise from ma­jor­ity pos­ses­sion.

Han­dling er­rors in the wet and slip­pery con­di­tions ended up cost­ing Em­pan­geni Prep.

But the coach­ing staff of Em­pan­geni was nev­er­the­less pleased with their side’s per­for­mance on the day.

It was their first match of the sea­son and the lads show­cased huge commitment and showed that if they worked on cer­tain ar­eas of their game, they will be a force to be reck­oned with.
