Beating Vividus with 3 Wickets
Our Cricket team continued their excellent winning streak in 2013 until losing our first and only game in 3 years with 2 runs.
But once again the Blue machine showed character by winning the semi finals with 113 runs against Jakkarandia and winning the finals with 23 runs against Olienhout to bring the Cricket trophy back home for the second year in a row.
The soccer teams practice in front of the residences and regularly have practice games against other residences when the soccer season is finished.
Mopanie offers hockey as well and we are quite a force to be reckoned with on the field. Last year we ended 5th and this year we are battling it out for the top position constantly.
