Western Province Deny S Gauteng

by | Aug 24, 2006

In a match likely to have caused an upset to defending champions Southern Gauteng, Western Provice drew first blood in a likely preview of the tournament A-Section finals clash.

Western Province alone has contested the tournament’s annual prize with Southern Gauteng for the past 15 years, with Southern Gauteng claiming victory in 10 of the past finals, including wins in the previous two consecutive tournaments. 

But after three games each this year, the top-seeded A Section is dominated by Western Province on 9 points holding a valuable +14 goal difference, indicating the team’s fondness of leaving the ball in opponent’s nets.

Today the unbeated Western Province leads the A-Section pool with their match against Northerns, who started with a stong 4-0 win against Natal Midlands on Monday, before folding 0-4 to Southern Gauteng on Tuesday.

Southern Gauteng take on North West in this evening’s final match. North West drew against the Raiders on Tuesday after Western Province took them 5-0 in their opening matches on Monday.
