Valiant effort by our 1st XV Vs the top team in the grade


Our 1st XV played away on Saturday at Mt Albert Grammar on a good pitch but with a swirling breeze across the ground. It was a close encounter in the first half with our boys defending very well but it was MAGS who opened the scoring with a converted try. Our team had limited opportunities in MAGS territory but came close to scoring on a couple of occasions but it was MAGS who lead at the break 10 nil after converting a penalty late in the first half.

Early in the second half MAGS scored again but our boys kept playing well and never gave up. The boys enjoyed more possession and territory in the second half but unfortunately failed to cross the try line with MAGS winning the game 17 nil. The coaches were proud of the effort put in by the boys and acknowledged the Year 13 boys who were representing the school in their last game in the Auckland competition. Player of the Day went to Roman Blackwell who worked tirelessly all game both in defence and attack.
