Warren van der Merwe starred as the Port Shepstone men’s hockey team came from behind to beat Rivers 4 at Riverside on Sunday.
Fielding only 10 men, Sheppie knew they were in for a tough game and soon found themselves chasing the match after leaking two early goals.
With Van der Merwe on fire, Sheppie fought back to make it 2-2 at half-time.
The momentum was now with the visitors, who scored three more goals and conceded just one after the break to clinch a 5-3 win.
Van der Merwe finished the match with four goals while Greg Wigmore added his name to the scoresheet.
The Port Shepstone ladies team had a bye.
