Their only two losses were against local rivals Witteberg 14-16 and Welkom Gim 19-36. Voortrekker's next game is only on the 29th of July against Goudveld which they have to win in order to stand a chance of qualifying for the Kovsies playoffs.
Hentie Cilliers won against Sasolburg HTS 62-0 to give some respectability to their season. Saturday's win was only their 3rd from 10 games and although they still have 2 matches left after the holiday break against Wilgerivier and Welkom HTS this year will not be seen as one of their bests.
Witteberg secured an easy 57-33 win against Goudveld to keep their chances alive to qualify for the season-ending playoffs. Hendrik Potgieter continued St Andrew's Bloem pain beating them 31-14 andHoopstad won against Bultfontein 38-17.
Welkom Gim remained at the top of the pile in remaining unbeaten in the Griffons League. This time it was Welkom HTS that had to endure the full force of Welkom Gim's talented team. Welkom Gim must play and win on the 05th of Aug 2017 against Goudveld to be crowned champions off 2017.
