Cen­tral U15s win cham­pi­onship

Stratford Press - - News -

The Cen­tral U15 Open Weight Rugby team has won the cham­pi­onship ti­tle for the 2018.

The team of de­ter­mined young men grafted their way through the com­pe­ti­tion af­ter a very av­er­age start meant they had to win their fi­nal round robin game to make the top four semi fi­nal play­offs. They won the game af­ter scor­ing in the fi­nal sec­onds of the match to win by a sin­gle point. The team’s semi-fi­nal match against Ha¯ wera was an­other nail-biter with the teams tied 17-17 at full time. Cen­tral pro­gressed to the fi­nal be­cause the team scored three tries to two. The fi­nal was a clas­sic match be­tween two good teams who dis­played high lev­els of com­mit­ment and skill, with the lead chang­ing sev­eral times dur­ing the game. Cen­tral showed their abil­ity to stay in the game, work hard as a team and do the sim­ple things well to run out win­ners. Credit to both teams for play­ing the game in great spirit, re­spect and sports­man­ship.

The team thanks all those in­volved in mak­ing this such a spe­cial achieve­ment, es­pe­cially to the par­ents and care­givers, cen­tral com­mit­tee and all of those who sup­ported the team.
