The day one results had a settled look about it as Hockey powerhouses, Jeppe and Westville, sit atop their respective pools at the end of Day 1 of the Belgotex Sport Kearsney Hockey Fives tournament at Kearsney College.
Defending champs, Jeppe from Gauteng, are on a considerable tear having gone 4 from 4 on day 1. Most impressive is their strike rate of almost 9 goals for and a paltry 2 against per fixture.
Pool B leaders, Westville Boys, are in a tight race for supremacy as they battle it out for top spot with upper highway foes, Kearsney College. Their clash on the last morning will surely determine who ends top of pool and avoid the Jeppe juggernaut in the cross pool playoffs.
Fellow KZN10 Schools, Michaelhouse and DHS, have found the going tough as they only registered 1 win each. Clifton School are locked in a tight race with Grey College for the 2nd spot in Pool A behind Jeppe. With Cliftons last match against Jeppe it will take a spirited performance from the Durban boys to claim a win with a fair amount of goals.
With the business end of the tournament set for Saturday its set for a thrilling climax.
