Hockey: SA U18 Teams & South Gauteng crowned Champs!


It was yet another classy display from South Gauteng that ensured they would run out victors of the U18 IPT 2012 that was held in Johannesburg.

ipt4South Gauteng never looked in any trouble through the grueling tournament that saw them brush aside all comers including the powerful KZN Inland side with a 5-0 drubbing.

If South Gauteng were unstoppable the same could not be said for Eastern Gauteng who struggled throughout the IPT to come to grips with the pace of the matches. They proceeded to get whipped by every team they came against and even got humbled 12-2 by their Southern neighbours.

Western Province will have two teams in the A section for 2013 after Western Province B beat Boland B in the B section final to gain promotion to the A section.


Final positions:

  1. 1.South Gauteng
  2. 2.Amathole
  3. 3.WP
  4. 4.KZN Coastals
  5. 5.Northern Gauteng
  6. 6.Boland
  7. 7.KZN Inland
  8. 8.EP
  9. 9.KZN Coastal B
  10. 10.SWD
  11. 11.Southern Free State
  12. 12.Eastern Gauteng(relegated to B section for 2013)
