Drostdy upset Klerksdorp in thriller

There were wins for powerhouses Outeniqua and Garsfontein, but Klerksdorp and Drostdy provided a fitting climax to the Pukke Festival.

Klerksdorp reached the final after handing the highly rated Framesby High a shock 32-23 defeat. Hosts Drostdy, however, didn't fare that well and lost both their previous games against Potchefstroom Gym and Framesby. And with the odds firmly against them, the home team edged past Klerksdorp 30-24 in an exciting match.

Earlier in the day Garsfontein pummelled Potchefstroom Gym 68-14, ending their campaign with a perfect three from three haul, while Outeniqua picked up two wins from three matches by defeating Transvalia 31-12. Their only loss came on day two against the all-conquering Garsies.

Day 3 results:

Outeniqua 31 – 12 Transvalia
Garsfontein 68 – 14 Potch Gym
Klerksdorp 24 Drostdy 30
