Another loss for Desert Jewels
28 March 2021 | Sports
SPAR Proteas coach Dorette Badenhorst started with a blend of younger and more experienced players and the mixture proved very successful. The Namibian Debmarine Desert Jewels struggled with the speed and intensity of the game and scored only six goals in the first quarter, against the 19 scored by the South Africans. By halftime, the SPAR Proteas had established an unassailable lead of 39-15, leaving the Namibians trying to play catch up.
The Debmarine Desert Jewels put up a good showing in the third quarter, losing it by just three goals before the SPAR Proteas showed their class in the final quarter, which they won 15-7.
Wing defence Nozipho Ntshangase had a night to remember when she was named most valued player in her debut match.
