“Ons is gekaap” “Ek het nie eers die koeël gevoel nie, ek dag dit is Franko wat geskiet is.” So het Kyla Hendriks (16) die gebeure van Dinsdagaand aan die Bulletin oorvertel. Die graad nege Merenksy leerling en haar vriend, Franko Zietsman (17), het ‘n kaping oorleef. Franko het die middag saam met Kayla by haar ouerhuis in Middel Weg spandeer. Omstreeks agt uur daardie aand was dit huistoe gaan tyd. Hy het in sy pa se Mercedes C180 motor kom kuier. Die motor was buite die erf op die sypaadjie geparkeer en Kyla het saam met hom uitgestap om totsiens te sê. “Ons het toe in die kar gesit en so beitjie ‘gechill’ vir oulaas. Ek het sommer in die bestuursitplek in geklim en Franko het oorkant my aan die passasierskant gesit. Skieliek het hy vir my gesê om die deure te sluit want iets voel nie vir hom reg nie.” Daar was oomblikke later ‘n harde klop teen die venster. “Ons het reg in die pistool se loop in vasgekyk,” vertel sy. “Die ou het met die wapen teen my venster gekap en my bevel om die deur oop te maak.

Maar ek het net geweier.” Daar was twee gewapende verdagtes. Een van hulle het Franko se deur uiteindelik oopgekry en was besig om hom met die pistool te slaan sodat hy uit die voertuig moes klim. Na ‘n geworsteling het Franko ingegee en is hy herhaaldelik geslaan en gedwing om op die grond te gaan lê. “Ek het gevrees vir Kyla se veiligheid so toe maak ek soos die ou met pistool sê en gaan lê maar op die grond. Hy het verseker geweet wat hy doen want hy het die pistool op my gerig gehou terwyl hy op haar geskree het. Sy maat was duidelik nog ‘n jong rower want hy was nie so aggresief nie en het gesukkel om Kyla uit die voertuig te kry.” Kyla het terug baklei en die stuurwiel vasgegryp. “Ek het net vir die ou gesê ek is nie bang vir hom nie en ek gaan nie uit die kar klim nie, want hoekom moet ek.” Sy het op die motor se toeter gelê om haar familie in die huis se aandag te kry. Die verdagte aan Franko se kant het sy humeur verloor en binne in die motor se passasierskant ingelê, sy pistool teen haar bobeen gedruk en die sneller getrek. Met dié het sy makker haar uit die sitplek geruk. Die rowers het in die motor in gespring en in die rigting van Nkowankowa weggejaag. Franko het Kyla opgetel en in die huis in gedra. Haar familie het die polisie en nooddienste in kennis gestel en haar dadelik na Van Velden hospitaal gehaas. Franko kon eers later sy pa (‘n oud-polisieman) in kennis stel aangesien sy selfoon in die deur van die motor was. Hy vertel dat sy pa hom geleer het van kleins af om paraat te wees en om kennis te neem Franko Zietsman (17), die Ben Vorster leerling wie se pa se van bewegings in sy omgewing. “Dit is te danke motor Dinsdagaand in Middelweg deur twee rowers gekaap is. aan my pa dat ek die ouens opgemerk het toe hulle

verby ons geloop het. Ek was kalm gewees deur die hele storie as gevolg van die dinge wat my pa my altyd vertel het. Ek is bly alles is verby. Kwaad, maar verlig.” Teen druktyd is daar geen verdere inligting verskaf oor die motor of die verdagtes nie. Die polisie het wel Woensdagoggend finale verklarings by Kyla en Franko geneem. — Joe Dreyer joe@bulletin.us.com

She also handed out a flyer to explain veganism. One of the AVs said, “Even if we convince only one person to change their eating habits, it’ll be worthwhile.” Although the Limpopo Province is regarded as a meat-eating province, Woolworths at The Mall of the North has a fair choice of vegan food. The recent Woolworths addition of a falafel wrap is commendable. However one of its ingredients is eggs, which makes this falafel wrap vegetarian.

This week started off badly for fifteen passengers of a minibus taxi which overturned between Modjadjiskloof and Tzaneen on Monday afternoon. According to eye witnesses, the taxi was travelling towards Modjadjiskloof from Tzaneen when it suddenly started swerving out of control. “We were driving just behind the taxi,” said one witness, “as we approached the bridge before Wesfalia, we saw the back tyre burst and the vehicle swerved out of control before it started to roll.” Thankfully, the barriers along the side of the road prevented the minibus from leaving the road and dropping down the 20

metre gorge beneath the bridge. There were fifteen passengers on-board, including the taxi driver. Nobody was killed in the accident and remarkably only four passengers suffered some injuries. The injured were treated by paramedics of the ER24 team who arrived on the scene literally within minutes after the accident. Traffic offer from Modjadjiskloof responded swiftly and managed the traffic in the area with the highest efficiency insuring that the paramedics could assist their patients in safety. Bulletin spoke to the owner of the taxi who also arrived at the

scene. “I am just thankful that there were no fatalities and that everyone was seen to in time. We will now have a look at the cause of the crash and try and prevent it from happening in the future. It is very sad and I feel terribly sorry for the passengers.” An hour later, the road had been cleared and traffic continued as usual. The injured were transported to nearby hospitals and the wreckage towed away. At the time of going to print it was not clear whether a case of reckless and negligent driving had been opened by the SAPS. — Joe Dreyer joe@bulletin.us.com

Uitzicht Drive closed indefinitely The DA in Modjadjiskloof will table a motion during the next council meeting for the reallocation of council funds towards the upgrading of the town’s water works and sewerage system. This is according to the DA Councillor in the Greater Letaba Municipality (GLM), Frederick Pohl. “We feel that the funds currently allocated for the building of stadiums and libraries could be much better utilized in the upgrading of the town’s ailing water supply system,” Pohl said. “How many more days are we going to have to struggle without water?” His comments come on the back of a massive sinkhole which formed in one of the neighbourhood streets on Sunday afternoon. A huge portion of Uitzicht Drive collapsed when the soil beneath the tarmac gave way. The road surface collapsed under its own weight. It is suspected that this was caused by a combination of a leaking water pipe that ate away at the layers of earth, and shoddy workmanship. “Around 2008 when the town’s sewer reticulation system was constructed by the controversial SGL Consulting Engineers (the company in which Julius Malema’s family trust holds a significant stake) on behalf of the Mopani District Municipality, this road was removed. When they reconstructed the road, it would appear as though the compacting was not done properly. There is also no sign of proper foundations,” Pohl speculated. “It has not been confirmed yet, but I am certain this is the origin of the trouble here.” On Sunday evening Pohl tried in vain to contact any top official in the GLM to request

that the road be closed off immediately. When he failed to reach any of the officials, Pohl asked the community for barrier tape, and they cordoned off the road themselves. The following morning the GLM had still not responded to the matter and instead sent a road working team to the site. The team consisted of four labourers armed with nothing more than two spades and a pick.

This latest debacle points to the municipality’s inability to adequately maintain their machinery and infrastructure, or be ready to respond to urgent matters such as this. At the time of going to print there was no further information available on the matter. We will be in contact with the municipality and keep our readers updated in our next edition. — Joe Dreyer joe@bulletin.us.com

The Message Dr Jan Truter

Ned Herv Kerk Letsitele Wag ‘n Dag In ‘n begraafplaas in Berlyn, onder ‘n eenvoudige houtkruis, lê een van Duitsland se bekendste komponiste, Hugo Distler, begrawe. Hugo Distler was ‘n uiters begaafde, maar ook ‘n baie sensitiewe man, wat veral ‘n weersin aan enige vorm van geweld gehad het. Toe gebeur dit wat hy gevrees het: hy word opgeroep vir militêre diens aan die oorlogsfront. Europa was juis op daardie stadium in die greep van Hitler se magswellus gewees. Distler het besef hy het twee keuses: “Hy moes of ander mense gaan doodmaak, óf hy moes homself doodmaak…” Dit word vertel dat hy op dieselfde dag as wat hy die oproepinstruksies ontvang het, vir ‘n lang wandeling gegaan het. Toe hy tuisgekom het, het hy agter sy geliefde orrel ingeskuif. Die klanke van die Trio in A-majeur van Bach, “Alle eer aan God in die hoogte!”, het sy huis gevul. Die volgende dag het hy homself om die lewe gebring. In ‘n kort briefie wat hy vir ‘n vriend gelaat het, skryf hy: “Jy kan jou nie voorstel in watter ontsettende eensaamheid ek verkeer nie – so asof ek van iedereen en alles geskei is….” Hugo Distler se dood was tragies, maar dié tragedie het egter nie hier opgehou nie. Net die volgende dag word daar ‘n brief van die Duitse opperbevel by sy huis afgelewer waarin hy meegedeel word dat die regering hom nie in die beoefening van sy kuns wou verhinder nie en na heroorweging besluit het om hom van alle militêre verantwoordelikhede vry te skeld. As hy maar net..., as hy maar net een dag langer gewag het, sou hy ‘n leeftyd langer kon leef. As hy maar net ‘n bietjie moed gehou het en in God se bestuur van sy lewe bly glo en vertrou het, sou hy God meermale met sy musiek kon loof: “Alle eer aan God in die hoogte!” Dikwels bevind jy jouself op sulke vlaktes van moedeloosheid. Soms raak dinge in die lewe vir jou net te veel en jy verloor soms die sin van die lewe. Jy voel soms dis nie meer die moeite werd om te lewe nie. Dit kan wees as gevolg van verliese wat jy beleef soos: afsterwes, egskeidings, inkomste, selfbeeld, identiteit en steunpilare. Jy beleef as gevolg van jou omstandighede angs, aggressie, depressie, eensaamheid of verwerping en dit bring jou by ‘n staat van desperaatheid, moedeloosheid en hopeloosheid. Daar is geen kitsoplossings wanneer jy so voel nie. Al wat ek kan sê is, wat ek graag vir Hugo Distler ook sou wou sê: “Wag ‘n bietjie en vertrou op God.” Hy het jou lief en bestuur jou lewe ten goede. Vertrou op Hom. Klou met jou hele hart aan sy beloftes vas. In Jesaja 41:10 bevestig God sy getrouheid aan jou: “Moenie bang wees nie, Ek is by jou, moenie bekommerd wees nie, Ek is jou God. Ek versterk jou, Ek help jou, Ek hou jou vas!”

Building Your Corporate Family Many people cringe when they hear their boss mention the idea of team building. Many excuses to not attend or partake in these activities are conjured up by that one term. However, according to Forbes.com, it is probably the best investment any business owner, director or CEO can make. “It builds trust, mitigates conflict, encourages communication, and increases collaboration. Effective team building means more engaged employees, which is good for company culture and boosting the bottom line. It can also be adventurous and enjoyable if you do it with a little pizzazz.” When living in one of the most beautiful and lush areas in the country, an iconic team building day would be one spent outdoors. So let’s take a trip to the adventurous side of team building with Magoebaskloof Adventures based in George’s Valley. Offering a wide range of products for employers to choose from, these packages include a great balance between physical adventure and thought-provoking challenges to encourage all of the following: teamwork, thoughtfulness, overcoming fear, troubleshooting and strategic planning, building trust and possibly the most important of all, the value of fun and a good laugh bringing people closer together. “Our mission at TeamWorx is to facilitate extraordinary experiences that stimulate personal growth and team development. TeamWorx fo-

cuses on Human Capital Development where we use adventure as a powerful catalyst to excite, motivate and unite your people. AEL (Adventure related Experiential Learning) is the methodology at the heart of our team building interventions, programs and courses which are specifically designed to enhance the performance and productivity of the individual, the team and ultimately the organization.” - (www. magoebaskloofadventures.co.za) A note to employers Team building significantly contributes towards employee motivation and building trust among the employees, thereby ensuring better productivity. Even the most simple and common team building exercises for communication, success and improved team performance will add incredible value with noticeable results. A note to employees Let go and have “Fun, fun, fun!” An opportunity to get to know the people that you spend a large chunk of your days with and see this activity as a valuable breakaway from the mundane, the stress, the daily grind. So to both employers and employees: step into the sun, climb the challenge and be grateful for team building. It could very well be the best day with your “corporate family” and can only contribute to the days in the office that will follow.

Sequoia – take what you need It’s certainly not what you expect when you first drive through the gates that lead to the little piece of Bohemia nestled in among the indigenous gardens of the Sequoia Garden Retreat. At first glance one assumes to be greeted with another of the many guest lodges scattered across the mountain outside Haenertsburg. But, then you take a stroll through the diverse plantations, past the bee hives, across the quaint wooden bridge that blankets the bass pond and into one of three azalea maze walks that lead you up the hillside. And suddenly that assumption is shattered. This place literally whispers “calm down and just breathe me in.” Standing on the hillside overlooking the vast expanse of botanical beauty you are surrounded by serenity. Three romantic cottages peer back at you through the colourful blossoms on the other side of the pond while a mountain biking trail to the left beckons

your free spirited self to follow its winding curves into the Dawn Redwood forest. Sequoia Garden Retreat wants to be explored. With many plans for the future development of this mystical hideaway, couples will soon be able to enjoy an outdoor wedding among the blossoms. Intimate outdoor camping and picnic gatherings with possible live entertainment and even an outdoor movie night, are also on the cards. For more information on arguably one of the more exciting venues in the Limpopo province, visit www.sequoiastay.com or check out their Facebook page. Alternatively, treat your senses and drive up to Sequoia and meet the young couple fuelling the growth of not just the surrounding flora, but the offerings of this beautiful place. You’ll find them just a kilometre down the road from Cheerio Gardens along the “L” Road as you head towards Haenertsburg.

All Work and No Play Makes Jack A Dull Boy The end of the year is drawing near. For many it is a time to start planning holidays and silly season fun. Employees start daydreaming about day’s in the sun on the beach celebrating some well-deserved time off. Employers, on the other hand, are taking stock and reflecting on the year and are considering whether a celebration for everyone’s hard work and commitment is worth the costs. In today’s economic climate it is understandable that many companies decide to give their year-end function a miss, however, the problem is that this in one of the most important events for any business. The benefits stretch beyond the obvious

“Thank you for your hard work” as it also provides the perfect opportunity for employers to get to know their staff better and therefore allow them to manage them better. Year-end functions are also a very effective marketing tool as there are no concrete rules as to who, you as a business owner or manager, would like to extend the invitations to. For those companies who go the extra mile to invite their clients and service providers, not only show gratitude for their support, building on long term relationships, but also offer these clients an inside look into their business. For any business built on a solid internal struc-

ture this could be a very powerful marketing tool. Even the most modest human being thrives on recognition and most certainly deserves it. A well known HR team conducted research that proved that “businesses that recognize their employees have about 14% more productivity than those who don’t.” Other surveys “showed that businesses with high employee engagement surpass those who don’t by a 22% in profitability.” And “gratuitous employers solidify the bond and loyalty with their employees.” This bond and loyalty is the heart of any business; the

blood pumping through its operative and logistical veins; and a successful, fun and positive yearend function, could be just what you need to clean out any toxins that may be lingering in the ‘bloodstream’ of your business. Wow your clients with a jaw-dropping event, that does not need to cost a limb or two, but just has to show-off what a fantastic team you have and spread the bond and loyalty. And above all remember “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy”, so don’t let boredom or low motivation infect your business and start planning your perfect year-end function today.

Choosing your place to stay Not only is the internet filled with accommodation establishments, in every town or city it could feel like every street and every main road or mountain pass has at least one sign-post directing you to the ‘next best’ place to unpack your suitcase. When planning your holiday or weekend escape it could feel like a pretty daunting task to choose the right place to stay. Every place to stay is as unique and different as every traveler and so it would be wise to do some thoughtful planning and research before making that ‘non-refundable’ booking. First, ask yourself, what matters most to you. Is the type of establishment more important than the price or is location what you are after? Refine your search but don’t stop there. Perhaps you need a place where your furry friend is welcome or one that offers a hearty meal or two. Don’t forget, there are always specials offers too and some very interesting places like a tree-house or a stable. Below is a list of things you may what to consider when making your “What matters most” list: • • • • • • • • • • • • •

Price Location Ambience Local Flavour Amenities Luxury Loyalty Programs Eco-Friendliness Family-Friendliness Pet-Friendliness Romance Unique experiences Meals

Once you have narrowed down your list, pick up the phone. Within the first few seconds you will already be able to get an impression of what you can expect from the place. Below is a list of suggested questions Smartertravel.com advises you to ask to help you make the most informed decision. • • • • • • • •

Does one side of the hotel have a better view or less noise? Is the hotel near public transportation? Is there a restaurant, and is breakfast included in your rate? How far is the hotel from the beach/ theater/meeting/convention center/ highway? How safe is the neighborhood? What is the hotel’s cancellation policy? Does the hotel offer smoking/ non-smoking rooms? What are the hotel’s environmental policies?

Never be afraid to search a little longer and dig a little deeper. There is often a review or experience that requires a little more effort to find, but could offer the most valuable information that could save you a lot of trouble or make your holiday unforgettable – in a good way!

Five Top Places to Play Outdoors Debengeni Waterfalls (Magoebaskloof, Tzaneen) is undoubtedly one of the most magestic places to visit in the area. Breathtaking scenery, idyllic picnic spots, water pools to swim in, rocks to slide down and hiking trails with sleepover spots, it promises a full day of fun, adventure and laughter for everyone. Even mountain biker’s can enjoy a challenging 17km route, called the Debengeni Downhill Ride. Magoebaskloof Hiking Trail (Magoebaskloof, Tzaneen) is beautiful beyond description. As the rainfall in the area is very high in summer and the altitude of the mountains ensures every present moisture, there is abundance of lush forestry, flowing streams, fungi and ferns along the way. The trail offers several options from two days to five days in durations. There are six huts along the route and take the form of old forestry buildings or modern purpose-built wooden chalets. Along the route one passes some of the largest gum trees in South Africa. The Dap Naude Dam lies close to Waterfall hut. The Magoebaskloof Hiking Trail is one of the most beautiful trails in the country. It needs a certain degree of fitness to complete the

trail especially the five day route. The two day routes are less demanding and suitable for family hikers. The trail is accredited by Southern Africa Trail Owners Association and bookings can be made through Komatiland Foresty (Pty) Limited +27 12 481 3615 or e-mail ecotour@safcol.co.za The Serala Loop (Wolkberg, Tzaneen), one of the smaller routes within the Wolkberg Wilderness Area, is said to be one of the country’s jewels and best kept secrets. This route can be done in three or four days and include many river crossings, 8 in day one,

and where you can see alpine grasslands and much more. If the weather allows, one can even climb Serala Peak (2024m) which in itself an experience beyond description. The Mountain Guide will take you on a hike of a lifetime. For more information feel free to contact 082 652 1490 or email info@ mountainguide.co.za. Muti wa Vatsonga Open-air Museum (Merensky Nature Reserve, near Giyani), also known as the Tsonga Kraal Museum, is a traditional Tsonga homestead where everyday life is portrayed. Here you can learn about the Northern Tsonga tribe and see their many traditions. Various customs and festivals are honored here at the museum. The village was established in 1974 and showcases the different building styles of the Tsonga people. It is an open-air reconstruction using mopane poles, clay from anthills and paint made from different coloured soils. To arrange your visit contact 082 974 1919. Tzaneen Dam (Tzaneen), is known as a fishing ‘hot spot’ and forms part of the bass angling competition circuit. It is a perfect family outing and the nature reserves offers great spots for jet-skiing, boating, canoeing and fishing. It is important to know that there are hippos and crocodiles so be vigilant, as the dam offers a real refreshing swim on a hot summer’s day. There is also camping and accommodation in the reserve so no children need to be asking to stay “just a little longer please”.

Vossies deur na Super Liga finaal Die Hoërskool Ben Vorster se 1ste krieketspan het op Saterdag, 23 September, hulle Super Liga semi-finaal teen Hoërskool Phalaborwa met 299 lopies gewen om deur te dring na die finaal, wat op 14 Oktober, teen Hoërskool Pietersburg sal plaasvind. Die Vossies het die loot gewen en besluit om 1ste te kolf. ‘n Vennootskap van 145 lopies om die eerste paaltjie tussen Vernon Harms en Emile Kruger het ‘n stewige begin vir die “Black Caps” verseker. Phalaborwa se boulers het swaar geleef en Ben Vorster teken 375/3 in hul 50 boulbeurte aan. Emile Kruger het sy eerste honderdtal aangeteken en behaal 121 van 107 balle. Franco Oberholzer het ook ‘n honderdtal behaal en teken 100 ,nie uit nie, van 92 balle aan. Hulle is goed deur Vernon Harms (52), Johan Harms (29) en Atwell Mokgoloboto (28), nie uit nie, ondersteun. Na ete was dit Phalaborwa se beurt voor die paaltjies. Die Vossie-boulers het vinnig, met die telling op 8 lopies vir 5 paaltjies, met hul afgereken en Phalaborwa almal uitgeboul vir 76 lopies. Johan Harms het 4 paaltjies vir 14 lopies in 4 beurte geneem en Atwell

Mokgoloboto het 4 paaltjies vir 25 lopies in 6 beurte laat kantel. Die O/15A-krieketspan, wat ook teen Hoërskool Phalaborwa gespeel het, het hul uitstekend van hul taak gekwyt en die Super Liga wedstryd met 104 lopies gewen. Damian Viljoen het goed met die kolf gevaar en 87 lopies aangeteken. Phalaborwa is almal

uitgeboul vir 65 lopies. Johndé Grobler het uitstekend geboul en 5 paaltjies vir 7 lopies in 5 beurte geneem. Hy is goed ondersteun deur Sakkie Vermeulen, wat 3 paaltjies vir 9 lopies in 5 boulbeurte geneem het. Regs: Emile Kruger en Franco Oberholzer wat albei honderdtalle aangeteken het.

Hoërskool Ben Vorster se 1ste krieketspan, die “Black Caps”. Voor: Franco Oberholzer, James Modiba, mnr. Rynier de Jager (afrigter), Roehan Steenkamp en Gustav Prinsloo.

Vossies wen Noordvaal Sewes skildtrofeë

O/17-span wen die skildtrofee. Voor: Morné Horn, Hendrik Massyn en Jason Mulder. Agter: Nkateko Tiba O/17-span wen die skildtrofee. Voor: Meyer Vorster, Thabang Mathole, Jason Mulder en Henrik Massyn. Middel: Christiaan Smit, Nkateko Tiba en Shima Molepo. Agter: Mnr. Peter Schutte (afrigter), Leonard Joubert, Morné Horn, Thapelo Ramoshaba, Erik Meintjes, Melvin Maake en mnr. Archie Norval (afrigter).

Die Hoërskool Ben Vorster se O/15- en O/17sewes rugbyspanne het tydens die afgelope Noordvaal sewes kampioenskappe gewys dat hulle nie terug hoef te staan vir die land se makro skole nie. Die toernooi, wat op 22 September in Pretoria gehou is, het die beste 16 spanne in hulle onderskeie ouderdomsgroepe, ongeag die grootte van die skool, sien deelneem. Die Vossies het skitter-rugby opgelewer met die O/15-span wat algeheel 10de geëindig het

en die O/17-span wat die skild gewen het. Die O/17-span het Nelspruit 14-7 geklop en het naelskraap teen Garsfontein 19-24 verloor. Hulle laat egter vir Potch Gimmies les opsê in die finaal vir die skildtrofee met ‘n telling van 17-5. Daarmee sluit die Vossies dan hulle baie suksesvolle 2017-rugbyseisoen af. Vossie rugby wil graag elke ondersteuner en almal , wat gehelp het om die rooimasjien se enjin so glad te laat werk, bedank.

Aces bow to Stars The Limpopo T20 Series ended its round-robin playoffs in the Capricorn District this weekend when the Aces Promotional Team took on Stars CC. The Aces team played up a league in the Super League and managed to still finish in the middle of the pack despite a loss against Stars. The Aces Club, sponsored by Nashua Limpopo, has two teams playing the league. The Promotional team consists of a number of youngsters including a 12-year old player. The idea behind this is to give everyone the opportunity to enjoy the game. Their Super League team finished in third spot. Stars C will now take part in the T20 Limpopo semi-final against the winners of the Vhembe, Mopani or Waterberg leagues. The outcomes of these leagues will be published in our future editions. On Saturday though, the Aces Promo team put up a good show when they elected to bat first against a for-

midable Stars CC bowling attack at the Nirvana oval. First batter up was the young Justyn Trueman, a star cricketer at Stanford lake College. The youngster showed great composure to score an impressive 62 runs off 58 balls before he was finally caught in the outfield off the bowling of Sharif. Trueman’s inning recorded the highest runs of the day. The rest of the batting line-up incuded a mixed bag of results for the young team who finally left the field on 132 runs to prepare for the Stars onslaught. In their innings the Stars CC team, considered by those in the know to be a formidable local force in the league, struggled to find their rhythm against the newcomers. Trueman took advantage of the situation and scalped the opening batsman, Arsad Patel, for just 10 runs. Asif Gogta scored the highest runs for the Stars with his 39 not out by the end of play to help his team to a two-run victory on the final ball of the match. The Stars CC will now play in the semi-finals against the Mopani League winners in their bid to reach the League finals at the end of October. — Joe Dreyer joe@bulletin.us.com Photos by: GKT SportPics
