Boland Dames trample Sharks

Built on the back of a powerful performance by their pack of forwards, the Boland Dames secured a well-deserved 11-5 win over the Cell C Sharks in their sixth round Women’s Premier Division clash in Durban on Saturday.

The visitors enjoyed territorial advantage and had the bulk of the possession, yet it was the Cell C Sharks Women who went into the break ahead by 5-3 after Boland had squandered a few scoring opportunities.

The Durbanites – who were forced to defend for most of the match and did so with aplomb – used the one chance they got before the breakthrough, and Nothando Majozi (scrumhalf) didn’t need a second invitation to capitalise.

With time almost up on the clock after Demi Nel (outside centre) had put Boland 3-0 ahead with a penalty goal, the Cell C Sharks were awarded a penalty from the restart and thanks to some quick thinking, Majozi took a quick tap, sidestepped a defender and went over for the only try of the half.

The Dames started the second half strongly and it was a matter of time before they took the lead again, through a try by Springbok Women’s midfielder Aphiwe Ngwevu.

The Cell C Sharks were reduced to 14 players due to repeated infringements, and when Ngwevu got the ball, the home team just could not stop her powerful run and she crashed over with 30 minutes to go.

Despite strong defence by the Durbanites, the visitors continued to dominate and keep the Cell C Sharks on the back foot. This allowed Nel two more attempts at a goal, one of which split the uprights in the 73rd minute to put the Bolanders ahead by 11-5.

That is how it stayed until the end, and Boland deservedly moved up into third position on the log.

Scorers:

Cell C Sharks Women 5 (5) – Try: Nothando Majozi.

Boland Dames 11 (3) – Try: Aphiwe Ngwevu. Penalty goals: Demi Nel (2).
