West Point crowned SA Fish Industries champions
October 31, 2016
West Point on Saturday overcame a challenging final day at the SA Rugby Fish Industries tournament at the Smit Sports Grounds in Velddrif on the West Coast to win the title.

The team from St Helena Bay registered two draws on Saturday after a solid start to the pool stages on Friday, but held their nerve to defeat Sea Vuna 15-0 in the Final.

West Point started the tournament strongly as they defeated West Point Fishing 37-3 and Spot-on-Deals 15-0 to top their log table on the opening day. But they faced tough competition in their final pool match on Saturday against Lucky Star, which ended in a 10-10 draw.

Despite this, they advanced to the quarter-final against I&J, which they won 14-9, but then found themselves playing to a 14-14 draw against Elandsbaai B in the semi-final. However, their favourable position on the log earned them a place in the final against Sea Vuna.

Sea Vuna, meanwhile, beat Amawandle 22-0, Sea Harvest 14-5 and Lucky Star Fleet 20-0 in the pool stages before toppling Sea Pride 3-0 and Sea Harvest 7-3 in the quarter- and semi-final respectively to book their place in the final. West Point, however, proved too strong in the grand finale of the tournament, which earned them the title.
