Honours even in Pretoria Fixture


The winter fixture against Pretoria Boys’ High is always a highlight of the season, with 19 rugby sides and 15 hockey sides meeting for a day of matches between two like-minded schools that are always played in a good spirit.

The same applied last Saturday, and at the end of the day, the honours were even, with Pretoria narrowly coming out on top in the hockey, and Jeppe edging it in the rugby.

Jeppe won the 1st team hockey game, Pretoria the under-16A and Jeppe the under-14A. In the end, the visitors won eight of the 15 games, Jeppe six and one game was drawn.

Pretoria won the all-important 1st rugby game, with Jeppe taking the honours in the under-16, under-15 and under-14 A games. Overall, Jeppe won 10 and Pretoria 9 of the 19 games played.
