Northwood Through to Night Series Final

On a very wet and windy Friday night, Northwood’s 1st XV showed why they are so highly regarded by easily accounting for a very spirited and determined Port Shepstone.  It took a mere 100 seconds to open the scoring, with textbook backline play being rounded off with a try by fullback Sasassa Makhanye.  With the rain making the ball wet and slippery, Northwood kept it tight and after some powerful work by the forwards, flank Greg Slater dived over for a try, which was converted by Cameron Du Plessis.

With the half time score on 12-3, the game resumed with Northwood increasing the intensity.  Ngoni “Beast” Chidoma scored another try and not long after,Dovydos Taujanskas crashed over for Northwoods 4th try.  TC Edmunds brought proceedings to a close with a fifth try, thus ensuring Northwood will contest the finals next Friday.

Having conceded only 17 points in 5 games (1 try and 4 penalties), Northwood has the best defensive record in the competition.  The 1st XV have also been one of the best attacking teams, scoring 109 points in total (an average of 22 per game).  In what could be billed as a “Clash of the Knights”, Northwood will meet Port Natal (known as the White Knights) in the finals on Friday at 8pm.  This promises to be a fitting finale between the 2 best teams in the competition.
