Joe and his team had a very successful tournament and were undefeated on their way to the final on Sunday13 Juy with some incredible Hockey throughout the tournament. The final was a nail-biting thriller and with a minute to go Western Province and Southern Cape was still in a deadlock at 2 goals each.
There was no doubt that both teams where there to take the trophy home and was neither where giving an inch. Bodies were put on the line and both teams started peppering thee goals at both ends, in the hope of getting that winning goal that will give them the championship.
After a brilliant passage of play and a well-executed strike by the Southern Cape team, they manage to sneak 1 past the Western Province defence with 2 seconds left on the clock and walked away with the trophy.
After a week of great Hockey, great fun and a few impressive bruises, the Western Province team return home with their heads held high. They gave it their all, came very close, but had to settle for Silver this year... but in the slightly twisted words of Arnold: "They'll be back!"
