DTS regains lead in men’s Premier League

DTS regained the lead in the Men’s Premier League field hockey from Bank Windhoek with an unmistakable 5-0 victory over Nust on Saturday.

DTS was slow to break through Nust’s resistance, holding a narrow 1-0 lead at halftime, but picked up the pace after the break to lack comfortable winners.

After applying the pressure from the start, with a shot from Christopher Dalton hitting the crossbar, DTS finally took the lead when Dalton scored from a short corner after 10 minutes.

DTS won several more short corners in the second quarter, but Nust’s defense held on just before half-time when they conceded two goals in two minutes.

An unmarked David Britz latched on to a long upside clearance to beat Nust goalkeeper Alex Kurangera at close range, while Dalton scored his second in a short corner a minute later, and with a lead of 3 -0 at halftime, DTS was in charge.

With Britz and Percy Barthram dominating the midfield, more opportunities presented themselves and they took the advantage 4-0 when Lorenz Schussler ended an attack from Britz, while Jason Bolton scored an emphatic victory with a short corner at the start of the last quarter.

The result sees DTS replacing the Saints at the top of the log with eight points in two games, while the Saints are now one point behind.

The School of Excellence, meanwhile, climbed to third place with four points after beating Windhoek Old Boys Bullets 6-1 on Saturday.

Delron Handura opened the scoring with a field goal after six minutes and more goals were scored as they drove the Bullets away.

Kavee Tjikuniva added two more and Penoa Murangi one as they took a 4-0 lead at halftime, and although Pieter Bruwer struck out a goal for the Bullets in the second half, other goals from Kevin Kapuire and Kaizemi Kandjii gave SoE a complete victory.

The Wanderers beat Nust 2-1 on Friday to move up to fourth place with three points.

Johan van Rooyen gave the Wanderers an early lead from a short corner, while AJ Human made it 2-0 with a second quarter field goal.

Nust scored a goal thanks to Mark Sungayi in the playoffs, but it wasn’t enough as the Wanderers held on for the win.
