NWU and Maties will contest for the the 2022 Varsity Netball title, after beating Kovsies and UJ, respectively, in their semi-final matches on Monday evening.

Defending champions Kovsies were dethroned by the Eagles 64-61 in a nail-biting encounter, at the Callie Human Hall in Bloemfontein.

At the sold out semi-final match, the visitors were cheered on by their fans until the final whistle.

Kovsies dominated for most parts of the game but in the dying minutes of the match, NWU took the lead for the first time and overcame the champions to book their place in the final.

In the second semi-final of the evening, saw the unbeaten Maties team welcome UJ to the Coetzenburg Indoor Centre.

It was a tightly contested affair with the Orange Army going in to the half-time break with a slender two-point lead.

By the end of the third quarter, the Maroon Machines took the fight to the visitors to level the score at 25-all.

Maties’ experience came to the fore as they dominated the final quarter of the game to win the match 43-35 and secure their second consecutive Varsity Netball final.

Maties and NWU will meet in the final on Monday, 17 October 2022.
