Lightning Stops Play
Glenwood vs Selborne College, No result – game abandoned
The game many were anticipating between Glenwood and Selborne, last played in 2013, was the final game of the second day. Both teams had been victorious in earlier matches, Glenwood snatching a win against EG Jansen in the final seconds, whilst Selborne had won comfortably against Noord-Kaap.
An early penalty in the game by Warrick Day put Selborne into a 3-0 lead. JP van Zyl on the wing scored a try a little while later, to increase the lead to 8-0. Lock Grant Pretorius stormed over midway in the half, converted by Day, for Selborne to lead 15-0.
Glenwood then scored a typical Glenwood try, when the ball passed through a number of hands ending with prop Blaine Golden scoring, converted by Jordan Hendrikse. Glenwood were back in the game 7-15 down at halftime.
Shortly after the break in dark conditions, Hendrikse narrowed the gap to 15-10 when he converted a long penalty from close to the touchline.
With lightning in the vicinity and the alarm sounding, the match was sadly suspended, and it was later decided the game should be abandoned.
