Varsity Hockey semi-finals in Kovsies’ grasp

Despite suffering their first loss of the Varsity Hockey tournament against Tuks on Sunday, Kovsies managed a dominating 4-1 comeback against Rhodes University at the UFS Astro on Monday.

Kovsies’ Jaco Fourie struck the first goal of the match on Monday on a rebound from a short corner. Shortly into the second chukka, Fourie rounded the goalkeeper for his second goal. The visitors did attempt to fight back, but shortly after scoring their one and only goal of the match, Kovsies scored a third time.

The final chukka saw our Kovsie team put pressure on the Rhodes goal box until, eventually, Ruan Kleinhans shot at goal for the home side’s fourth point.

Kovsies are currently ranked among the top half of the log and will next be facing UCT on Saturday at 11:45 at UJ for round seven of the tournament. It is likely that Kovsies should also make it into the semi-finals on Sunday and if the UFS hockey boys could secure a win there, the final awaits them on Monday 19 May.
