Gauteng North survived a final round onslaught from Ekurhuleni to lift their second successive South African U-23 Inter-Provincial Championship title, while KwaZulu-Natal secured a popular promotion to the A-Division at Royal Durban on Friday.

Ekurhuleni managed to ruin Gauteng North’s undefeated run at this year’s team championship with a 7 – 5 victory, but it was all too little, too late.

The defending champions began the final round with three points in hand and, despite the defeat, held out for victory on eight points.

Second-placed Central Gauteng defeated Limpopo 7 – 5 to finish second in the standings, edging Ekurhuleni to third place on game points.

Western Province took fourth in the log after beating North West Province 8 – 4.

B-SECTION

KwaZulu-Natal mowed down Southern Cape to win the B-Division to the delight of the home crowd.

The local heroes took a two point lead into the final round and completed an undefeated run when they mowed down the Garden Route side 9 – 3 to seal their promotion.

Meanwhile Boland held off Eastern Province 6.5 – 5.5 to tie Southern Cape and Free State, who beat Mpumalanga 8 – 4.

Although all three teams finished with six points, Boland took second on 33.5 games points and Southern Cape, on 29.5 points, edged out Free State for third place by one games point.
