Semi-final spots confirmed; UniSA take another win

St Kilda will face UniSA and UQ is up against Brisbane in today’s National Club Championship semi-finals.

UniSA recorded their second consecutive win, overcoming Brisbane this time, in the last round of the group phase.

UniSA was headed for a big win after going to the break with a 15 to 8 lead, but a surge by Brisbane, in the second half, stopped their momentum.  UniSA held on to win 24:19 but not without a heavy cost to them.

UniSA’s leading scorer, left-back Thomas Schmider sustained a knee injury, late in the second half, that could see him miss the remainder of the tournament.

UQ topped the group phase with a perfect six points after St Kilda pulled out of their scheduled, last-round match to seek government health advice over players that had travelled through Sydney in the last few days.

I was 15 when I first met Sasha, in 1987. A Kuwaiti friend found a handball team based in Kensington, and we wanted to meet with them with a view to joining their team. “Stand up straight with your shoulders back or they won’t pick us,” was my friend’s advice to me before we went. What he should have said was: ‘bring your gear’!
