On Saturday, 26th July Wynberg played against Kent College. It was a very exciting match, one of the best matches the under 16 B side played this season. Kent Colllege were very tough competitors and forced Wynberg to up their game. The match was very close. No side wanted to lose their centre pass. Playing indoor at Herschel was lovely. The overall score was a draw, 9 goals a piece. Well done to Dana Arries and Alison Robertson who were both woman of the match.

On Saturday, 26th July, our u19A team played against a touring side from England called Kent College. Due to the cold front that had hit the Cape, the match was played at Herschel Girls’ Indoor Court. These teams only played a game of two halves of 15 minutes as Kent College had another fixture later that day in Langa.

The first half started off steady with Wynberg leading at the end of the first half. Moments into the second half, Wynberg’s Centre Christin Sands got subbed due to an ankle injury. Alex Steyn came to the rescue, clumsily not knowledgeable of the position, made the spectators laugh. The game ended 17 – 11. It was a comfortable win despite the injury of the lightning fast Christin Sands.

Player of the match: Christin Sands

Best attacker: Natalie Winter

Best defender: Yeukai Chamba

 1st Team vs Kent Tour Team

The rain held off for a while as the game between WGHS 1st Team and Kent began at Wynberg astroturf at 6:30pm on Thursday evening.

The Wynberg team needed a few minutes to adapt to the change in structure necessitated by the loss of 2 of our key defenders, Sasha Sivertsen and Logan Patel, due to injury. But the new members in the team stepped up and slotted in comfortably. Wynberg applied pressure from the start and it was only a matter of time before Jamie Southgate created space for herself on top D and slammed home a cracker reverse-stick shot that took the Kent keeper by surprise. The team continued to string together constructive passes, creating amazing build-up from the backline through to the strikers. The combination of Chelsea Manoek and Erin Prince proved too strong for the Kent defence as the Wynberg team connected up through Jamie Southgate and Tasneem Rawoot to draw the keeper and set Hannah Hellenberg up to slot the ball in the back of the box. As the rain bucketed down in the last 5 minutes of the game, a goalmouth scramble resulted in a third and final goal for Amina Williams for the home team. An impressive performance from all the Wynberg girls.
