Team SA Downs Bulgaria

18 December 2023

...Following a goalless opening frame, South Africa stepped out in the second period to emphatically outshoot their higher-ranked opponents 20-5. Captain Uthman Samaai led by example when cutting around Andrea Karabadjakov´s net, weighed up his options, and sent a pass to Valadas who converted for South Africa´s opener at 31:26.
South Africa doubled their lead just 41 seconds into the third frame. Luke Carelse snatched up a puck following sloppy Bulgarian defending and fed Valadas who scored his second with a wrister from the top of the face-off circle.

Team SA Mid-Olympic Campaign

13 January 2024

...But David decided to take on Goliath. At least momentarily. Aided by the heroics from South Africa´s netminder Ryan Boyd the score was 1-1 after one period. Estonia had needed 13:08 to net their opener. South Africa´s Stefan Kluyts hit back just 3:28 later.
With Estonia steaming ahead in the second frame they eventually reaped their rewards by netting five unanswered goals. But with seven seconds left of the middle period, veteran Marc Giot scored South Africa´s second following Estonian comedy defending.

Team SA in the history books

22 December 2023

Well done Team South Africa, history has been made!
The first ever African country to take part in the Olympic Qualifications for Ice Hockey, Team South Africa enjoyed a great trip to Iceland where they took part in the Round 2 stage of Group K Qualifications against Bulgaria, Iceland and Estonia. A slow start for Team SA saw them losing to Iceland in the opening game but in their second game playing against Estonia who is 28 positions above, had a great game with a 9-2 defeat but the only team to score again them too. The final game was an outstanding performance by Team SA as they beat Bulgaria 4-1. Well done Team SA!!!
