GQEBERHA – King Williamstown’s Dale College put on an impressive display in the mid-week fixtures of the Buffalo City League and squeeze into the top five on the log standings.
Dale College, one of South Africa’s highly respected boy’s schools, had an incredible week that saw them bounce back in style having missed a number of fixtures earlier in the season.
Dale College has produced many sporting greats and has a rich history of sport and academics. They are known for producing Makhaya Ntini, one of South Africa’s most iconic sporting figures.
When they missed a number of fixtures earlier in the season, they found themselves in a difficult position and catching up to the log leaders appeared to be a rather steep mountain to climb.
This week, Dale College boys begun their catch on a positive note with two victories in two consecutive days.
They beat Bayville High School by a mammoth 3-1 score-line on Tuesday and followed up with a 2-1 victory over George Randell on Wednesday afternoon. As a result of their performances this week, Dale College climbed two spots up on the log and are well positioned at fourth place with three games in hand.
Mali Abrahams’ boys at Stutterheim High School still comfortably occupy the top spot on the log while Selborne College and the Center of Excellence take second and third spot.
In other results in the week, Merrifield College easily pushed Baysville High School aside and handed them a 3-0 defeat to conclude what was a difficult week for Bayville who also lost to Dale College by a huge margin earlier in the week.
Selborne and Hudson Park High School also locked horns this week in what was a close game with Selborne coming out victorious. The two teams put on a show in East London and gave their fans proper entertainment as the match saw seven goals scored and a 4-3 score-line in favour of Selborne High School.
On the other hand, the Center of Excellence continued their winnings ways by beating Cathcart 2-1 to maintain their third-place position on the log standings.
