DSG Hosts Herschel Girls’ School

DSG hosted Herschel Girls' School (Cape Town) this past weekend in Grahamstown.

Herschel have been touring the Eastern Cape with three hockey and three netball teams. They played against DSG in Grahamstown on Saturday morning. DSG won two of the three netball fixtures, but it was the 1st team match which proved the most exciting. DSG was trailing by two goals going into the half time break, but bounced back in the 3rd quarter to edge ahead. The vocal home crowd spurred the DSG team on as they traded goals with Herschel in the final quarter and when the final whistle ended the game DSG were ahead 20-19 on the scoreboard. A thrilling end to a game of the highest quality.

In the U16A netball match DSG comfortably beat Herschel 22-14, while in the U14A match Herschel picked up the win with a 14-13 score line.

In the hockey, the DSG 2nd team came out on top to win 3-1, Herschel won the U16A match 2-0 and the U14A match was drawn 1-1.
