South Africa dominated both the boys’ and girls’ Test series this week, with the SASHOC national U-18 teams securing clean sweeps in their three-match campaigns against Namibia’s U-18 sides, which came to a close in Stellenbosch on Tuesday night.

The SA boys’ team ran rampant against their neighbours, scoring 21 goals in their three games at Maties.

In the opening match late last week, they earned a 4-0 victory, and they went on to bag a 10-1 win in the second fixture, with James Flint scoring hat-tricks in both clashes.
In the final game, the hosts coasted to another convincing 7-0 victory, wrapping up a 3-0 series win.

The girls’ series was much closer, with Namibia putting up a persistent fight.
The visitors took an early 1-0 lead in their opening match, though South Africa fought back to secure a 3-1 win.

In the second match, the scores were level at 2-2 with just 15 minutes left in the fixture, before the home side grabbed a 3-2 victory. Having already sealed the series with a game to spare, the SA team raced to a 4-0 win in the third and final match.
