It was in the final four minutes of the match that Chané Hill from Tuks snatched the match away from their opponents to clinch it with a final score of 1-0 in Potchefstroom.

In the Gauteng derby both teams were equal in the first and second chukka as they couldn’t manage to put any points on the scoreboard before halftime.

Tuks had more momentum over Wits in the third chukka as they had more field territory and attacking opportunities but did not put it to any good use.

In the last chukka both teams looked determined to put the first score on the board to avoid a penalty shootout. But it was Chané Hill from Tuks who managed to round off a short corner to win the match for her team, as Wits had to settle for a last-minute defeat.
