The results clearly show that the visiting side came prepared to conquer its host. The schools took each other on in a variety of sports such as rugby, netball and football.

NV Cewu dominated on the netball court, winning all three matches, including a crushing defeat of Mtyobo’s U11 team by 2-18. But Mtyobo showed their mettle in the rugby, with their U13 team holding their own against NV Cewu in a 5-5 draw.

Mtyobo’s U11 rugby squad restored their hopes when they defeated Cewu 11-5.

Cewu proved to be a stubborn side in the sole soccer clash, defeating the host school 1-0.

Principal Dyolashe said the schools visited each other every year. Last year Mtyobo went to Grahamstown and this year Cewu came to Port Alfred.
