Fullback Keane Galant had shown a clean pair of heels in scoring two tries, both converted by Carlton Pietersen. HTS Middelburg’s first try went to hooker Rivaldo de Kock following a rolling maul. The second went to centre Christiaan Vlok with an intercept in the Drostdy 22m area. Both were converted by flyhalf Alec Vermaak.
Drostdy took the lead when flank Wynand du Plessis burst through the defence to dive over for an unconverted try and a 19-14 lead.
The second half saw no further points as the two competitive sides made every attempt to score but good defence prevented them doing so, leaving the final score 19-14 to HTS Drostdy.
