UJ made use of their goal attempts in their encounter against the Madibaz to claim a victory of 6-2 on Sunday afternoon in Potchefstroom.

In the first minute of the game it was Carmen Smith from UJ with the opening goal of the match to put her team in an early 2-0 lead.

Kirsten Paton followed in the footsteps of her teammate as she found the back of the goal box from a penalty corner to extend the lead to 3-0.

The second chukka also belonged to the ladies in orange as Jenevieve Taljaard joined the party in the circle to leave her side 5-0 up against the Madibaz.

UJ headed into halftime on 6-0 as Zeena Martin finished off in the circle from a penalty corner. In the third chukka it was Kirsty Tonks from the Madibaz who managed to put her side on the board for the first time to narrow down the gap to 6-2 but the Madibaz faced a defeat against UJ and the match would end that way with no goals in the final chukka.
