Vic­tory for VI boys

New Straits Times - - Sport -

VI, who en­tered the pitch as Ragbi Per­dana cham­pi­ons, led 10-3 with min­utes to go.

After MCKK’s Syamel Amal Sham­sud­din scored a try, Muham­mad Syazani Suhami, with the last kick of the match, missed the op­por­tu­nity to tie the score when his kick sailed past the left post.

Coached by Nik Mo­ham­mad Sidek Nik Jaa­far, VI earned a penalty early in the first half, and con­verted by stand­off Muham­mad Haziq Ak­mal Ja­malud­din be­fore the Kuala Lumpur-based school widened the gap through Muham­mad Afif Nu­razha’s try and Haziq’s con­ver­sion after the break.

Prompted by a crowd which in­cluded bus­loads of sup­port­ers from Kuala Kangsar, MCKK at­tempted a late come­back but it was not to be.

The Cup tour­nam­ment serves as the pin­na­cle of the Su­perSix Schools Rugby 15s which was in­tro­duced in 2013. Farah Azharie
