Rugby: Match Report Glenwood v Hilton

The Green Machine, Glenwood High School, travelled up to Hilton College on Saturday the 7th June, 2014 to play against a home team that would have been keen to make amends for their heavy defeat against Maritzburg College last weekend.


GLENWOOD V HILTONUnfortunately, any thought of an upset for Hilton was quickly silenced as Glenwood put in a performance that can only be described as brutal and unrelenting.

From the start Glenwood took control up front and dominated the early exchanges through some controlled, physical forward play. They were rewarded through a try by their flanker, MacMillan Muller, which seemed to dent the Hilton defence and kill any sort of confidence they may have had.

Hilton responded during the course of the half with a try from a rolling maul, but this did little to halt the visitor’s momentum.

Tries by Jaco Coetzee, Kevin du Randt, Kwazi Khanyile and another by Mac Muller put Glenwood into a healthy lead of 27-7 at half time. Curtis Jonas Converted 1 of the 5 tries.

Glenwood continued to grow in confidence and put in an even better performance in the second half. Having the freedom to now run, their backs broke down the Hilton defence almost at will and it was not to long before Glenwood were on the score board again.

Second half points by Glenwood included tries from Donovan du Rand who scored a hat-trick, Koos Tredoux, Jaco Coetzee and Sphamnadla Ngcobo. Jonas converted 5 of the tries.

On a day that the Hilton boys would rather forget, Glenwood ran away with the game and dominated every facet. The final score was 67-7 with the visitors scoring a total of 11 tries.
