Africa United Cruise past Latin America

Africa United and Latin America would meet in the Confederate Cup on day 5, with an incredibly tight competition being run down to the last game. Africa were coming into the game with a 1-1 record, and the lost for the Mediterranean-Middle East kept their bid for winning the cup alive. Latin America would be looking for an upset, as well as their first win in the tournament.

Africa would get the first points on the board, with their star of the tournament in Obed Karwhin running from dummy half to score just beside the posts. He would convert his own try to make it 6-0 after nine minutes.

Africa would then extend their lead off the back of a scrum, with a mixture of sloppy defence and some beautiful running from Moung Dut seeing the five-eighth run 70 metres to score underneath the posts.

Obed Karwhin would convert the try to make it 12-0 after 20 minutes.

There would be some huge hits throughout the half, with both teams willing to throw the ball around and barrel into each other all over the park. Simon Mow gave Africa United a third try of the day, with the captain pushing through some soft tackles to go over underneath the posts.

Obed Karwhin would make no mistake from in front yet again to make it 18-0 after half an hour.

Bill Benjamin would get Africa United their fourth try of the game, getting a beautiful ball to him. He would palm off two defenders with his first touch of the ball, and fly over to extend Africa's lead. Obed Karwhin would hit the left post and luckily, see the ball fly through the posts to make it 24-0 on the stoke of half time.

Africa would start the second half in the same way that they started the first, with a try within the first ten minutes. Bill Benjamin would read the spread from Latin America, and intercept a cut out ball to run 50 metres untouched for United.

Obed Karwhin would sink his conversion attempt to remain perfect and give Africa United a 30-0 lead.

What seemed to be a regulation kick over the top from Moung Dut would turn into a try for Africa United. Aiden Perry would grubber forward a fumbled ball off the Latin America side as they tried to regather it, planting the ball down.

Karwhin would kick his sixth conversion out of six attempts to make it 36-0 with 18 minutes left.

Latin America would get on the board after 65 minutes, a reward for their persistent effort. Matt Gardner would charge over the line, with two defenders trying to hang on yet unable to prevent him from putting the ball down.

The kick would be unsuccessful to leave the score at 36-4 in favour of Africa United.

Moung Dut would then have something else to show for his near perfect performance, with a beautiful offload from Gak Reic on the inside for Dut to score on the left side.

Karwhin would once again convert his attempt to give Africa United a 42-4 lead with just over 10 minutes to go.

Latin America would get themselves a consolation try right under the posts, with Eddie Wagner barging over from close range to get the second try for the Heat. Thomas Garrido would convert this attempt to leave it at 42-10 with 7 minutes left.

Obed Karwhin would finish off the game with a try for himself, running across the field until he could find a gap to push through. A try on the left edge would ensue, with Moung Dut taking the final conversion attempt.

Dut would sink it to give Africa United a clinical 48-10 win against Latin America. That send United to the top of the Regional Conference, with the final on Saturday.
