The Kovsie men’s and women’s hockey teams have positive expectations for the University Sport South Africa (USSA) national student tournament.

The USSA championships were hosted by the University of the Free State (UFS) from 2 to 6 July 2018. This year’s championships will have 45 competing teams and will thus be the biggest ever USSA hockey tournament.

For the female squad to qualify for the 2019 Varsity Sports tournament, they have to secure a spot among the top-seven teams. In order to get back into the A section, the Kovsie men’s team must win their tournament. 

The matches are scheduled to take place on the UFS Bloemfontein Campus astro fields.

The UFS women’s team, captained by Antonet Louw, is set to play on Monday at 15:35 against Nelson Mandela University (NMU); on Tuesday at 17:00 against the University of Johannesburg (UJ); and on Wednesday at 18:25 against North-West University (NWU). The play-off matches will take place on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.

The men’s team, with Cheslyn Neethling as captain, will play on Monday at 17:00 against the Central University of Technology; on Tuesday at 15:35 against the Tswane University of Technology; on Wednesday at 17:00 against the Vaal University of Technology; on Thursday at 18:25 against the University of KwaZulu-Natal; and on Friday at 15:35 against Rhodes University.

2011-03-13

The Kovsie men’s football team in action.

Things are looking very positive for the Kovsies men’s football team at the University of the Free State (UFS) this year as they are ranking first in the SAB regional league.

From the 23 matches – out of 30 matches – the team has won 16 matches, drawn 5 and lost 2 matches in the league. The Kovsies team beat the Central University of Technology team (2-1 on home turf and 1-0 with the away game). They also beat the Thaba Nchu All Stars with 4-1 the past weekend on home ground.
 
“This coming weekend we will play against the league contenders, MUPS United from Ladybrand, currently second in the league. The match will take place at the Arthur Pitso Stadium on Sunday,” said sport manager at Kovsie Sport, Nomsa Mahlangu.
 
The Kovsie team will later in this league also compete against the Leeds United and the Junior Mates from Dewetsdorp.
 
“We are hoping to not drop any points in order to gain advancement to the Vodacom provincial league. If we win this league we will be promoted to the provincial league, which is only two steps away from the professional league. It is our dream to play professional league football,” said Nomsa.
