“Westville managed to take an early 3-goal lead in the 1st chukka,” Darren says. “College fought hard in the 2nd chukka and managed to pull back 2 goals but Westville were able to extend their lead to 6-2.”



Westville came out firing in the 3rd chukka and added a further 3 goals to their tally in taking a commanding 9-2 lead.

“Going into the last chukka, Westville were just too accurate and strong for the College side and came out the victors (15-3).”
