The University of the Free State (UFS) recorded a superb 71-36 victory over the University of Johannesburg (UJ) in their Varsity Netball match in the Callie Human Centre on the Bloemfontein Campus.

At the end of the first quarter the home side was off to a good start leading 18-11. Yet UJ recovered well hereafter to close the gap by winning the second quarter and taking over with a 28-22 lead.

However, a string of scoring just after half-time saw the UFS cruise to a comfortable 52-28 lead as they went into the final quarter, resulting in a bonus-point victory in the end. UJ could only manage eight goals in the last period as they fell short of a consolation bonus point.

Kovsies lost their first match in the Varsity Netball tournament against NWU Pukke, but recovered well by beating Tuks and TUT respectively in the following clashes. Over the next fortnight the team from the UFS will have two more Monday night match-ups in the Callie Human Centre in Bloemfontein. They will face the University of Cape Town (UCT) on the court next week, followed by Stellenbosch University (Maties) the week thereafter.
