Two hat-tricks for Selborne College scored by Ben van der Merwe and Cade Kock secured an emphatic (9-2) win for the East London side against their arc rival, Queens College in the FNB Classic Clash encounter in East London on Saturday. 

Selborne, who defeated their rivals 3-1 in the first leg earlier in the year, went into the game high in confidence after winning their first match from the mid-year break against Hudson Park (3-2). 

The side, coached by KJ Friend and led by Ben van der Merwe also went into the game with an unbeaten record in the Eastern Cape having only played to a draw with Pearson High School from Gqeberha earlier on in the year. 

Van der Merwe and Kock have been goal-scoring machines for the side throughout the year. The pair also represented the Amathole u18 side during the SAHOC tournament in Bleomfontein in June. 

The other two players that scored goals were Waeden Plaajies, and Thomas Caswell to wrap up a 9-2 in a dominant performance. 

In other matches in the Province, Grey High School edged out Grey College (1-0) in Gqeberha, while Stirling held on for a nervy (1-0) win against Hudson Park. 

St Andrews from Makhanda also won big during the weekend, defeating Dale College (6-2) in King Williams Town.
