Noord-Kaap beat Diamantveld in Kimberly Battle
CLASSIC CLASH REPORT: Hoërskool Noord-Kaap marched to back-to-back Classic Clash victories after they recorded a 26-19 win over Hoërskool Diamantveld.
The victory was hard-fought, which made it even more special for the hosts who were trailing 0-14 after only just ten minutes of play.
Thereafter Diamantveld's route to victory took a horrible turn as they were forced to play with 13 men following yellow cards to the prop WS Coetzer and hooker Marco van Staaten.
And two quick tries by the Noord-Kaap made sure the sides head to lockers at 14-all.
As the second half commenced, Diamantveld's ill-disciplined made it hard for them to regain momentum as they found themselves having to play with 14 men after fullback Ashwill Botha was given a yellow card.
