Hockey side go down 3-0 in final
THE Mecer NMMU Madibaz men’s hockey team claimed the silver medal for the second year running at the University Sport South Africa tournament, hosted by the University of KwaZulu-Natal in Maritzburg last week.
“The standard was very high at the tournament and there was no easy match in both pools,” Madibaz hockey manager Cheslyn Gie said.
“We did extremely well with a very inexperienced defence. We had four first-years in our team, including the goalkeeper.”
The Port Elizabeth team got their tournament off to a good start by beating Free State University 4-1 in their opening fixture.
