UJ continued with their impressive performances on the sporting front, this time was the netball ladies, as they thumped VUT 78-25 in the first Varsity Netball match at Soweto on 14 September.

They were ruthless in their execution, as VUT got a tough introduction to the competition.

The home side got out of the blocks quickly as they took the game to VUT, and by the first powerplay they were already 16-5 up.

Although they were right up against it, VUT fought back valiantly, and kept UJ’s lead to 20-9 at the first strategy break.

By half-time, UJ’s dominance was clear as they were firmly in control with a 35-16 advantage, leaving VUT with it all to do in the second half.

The home side wrapped up the bonus point in the third quarter, and went into the final break with a commanding 55-21 advantage.

It was more of the same in the final stages, as UJ cantered to what was a comfortable victory in the end.
