Fullback Cohen Jasper kicked a stoppage-time conversion as Drostdy snatched a 26-25 victory over Dale, while Noord-Kaap, Selborne, Kearsney, Glenwood and Monument also won on day two of the Kearsney Festival.
After a superb win over the hosts on day one, Drostdy continued their impressive run at the festival with an exciting one-point win over Dale College in the penultimate game on Saturday.
Trailing by six after the siren had sounded, Christie Grobbelaar broke the defensive line to score a try that made it a one-point game before Jasper stepped up to slot the match-winning conversion.
Before the late drama, Drostdy opened up a 19-0 lead at half-time courtesy of tries by scrumhalf Romeo Eksteen, Jasper and Adriaan Maans.
The Dalians showed their mettle after the break with 25 unanswered points, including a stunning 45m drop goal from captain Aphelele Fassi that sent the crowd into a frenzy. But in the end, their effort was not enough as Drostdy rallied in the last 30 seconds to seal the win.
Another team that continued to impress was Glenwood, who beat EG Jansen 24-19 to clinch their second win of the festival.
Elsewhere, James Sutherland contributed 18-points via a try, two conversions and three penalties to guide Kearsney to a 23-0 win over Framesby. Selborne thrashed Pretoria Boys’ 59-5, Noord-Kaap beat Queen’s 31-14 and Monument hammered HTS Middelburg 40-8.
