Brackenfell register first win at home

Brackenfell full back Justin de Kock breaks away to score his schools first try against Milnerton.

Showing the competitive nature of the school boys, of the 10 encounters that took place, eight produced more than 40 points.

In the northern suburbs, Brackenfell edged Milnerton 22-19 in a high-paced game to record their first win of the season.

Before this match, Brackenfell had faced three of the heavyweights in the league, Rondebosch, Bellville and SACS, and lost all those matches.

The game against Milnerton presented the school with a chance to break that losing streak and they will be hoping it will significantly boost their momentum going forward as they have another tough encounter coming up, against an in-form Durbanville side.

Durbanville have been ruthless from the start of the season, beating DF Malan 81-0 and Tygerberg 62-14.

Elsewhere, in another battle of the north, DF Malan High faced off against Tygerberg High School with both sides coming from losses in their previous encounters.

DF Malan were more desperate as they were yet to register a win and came off a difficult 81-0 loss to Durbanville in their last game.

The hard-fought 24-22 victory against Tygerberg at the weekend should give DF Malan a much-needed boost for their next encounter against De Kuilen on Saturday May 25. However, they should be wary as the De Kuilen side are yet to get a victory this season.

For Tygerberg, they have another difficult task ahead of them this weekend, when they meet Bellville High, who have won five of their first six fixtures.

Tygerberg have a mixed bag of results in their opening matches, winning two against Strand and Milnerton and losing to Boland Landbou, Durbanville and DF Malan.

Before the game against DF Malan, they also suffered a heavy 62-14 defeat to Durbanville.

Bellville will be favourites at Tygerberg High School on Saturday May 25 but the Tygerberg boys will know that a game is not won on paper and if they perform well on the day, Bellville could be faced with an upset.

The boys from Tygerberg will be hoping their supporters come out in numbers as they will need all the encouragement they can get.

Bellville collected points away from home at the weekend with a 24-20 victory against Monument Park.

It was a try fest in Wynberg as Wynberg Boys’ welcomed Bishops to their turf.

One would think scoring 40 is enough in any game, but this was not the case as Bishops were in high spirits. Bishops replied to Wynberg’s 40 points with 60 of their own for their fourth win in a row.

The Bishops boys’ only loss came in the opening round against Paarl Gimnasium while Wynberg is another side still waiting for their first victory.
