This was a most entertaining game which saw both sides throw everything into the contest. With the wind at their backs during the first half, the home team dominated the early exchanges, enjoying territorial advantage and enthusiastic support from local supporters. In fact, the boys from Durbanville were able to keep their noses in front until the last seven minutes of a hotly-contested affair. In the second half, the visitors gradually fought their way back into contention, even despite picking up a yellow card and a couple of injuries along the way. The dogged and determined hosts just never gave up, however, and could have ended on top until one last conversion kick narrowly missed the mark with just minutes left on the clock. Well done to both teams for delivering such an absorbing contest in the end!
