2nd XV draw in a thriller against Sacred Heart

What a match! King’s College Second XV played Sacred Heart College at their home ground. Right from the start you knew we were in for a good one. Sacred Heart scored first in the right hand corner of the field early and unconverted. Following this, a penalty was awarded to the opposition which took them out to an early lead. Just before half time Piki Mihinui combined well with Max Web, running a simple move putting Tahu Watson in for try right on half time. Ethan Stuart converted at the break.

King’s moved up a gear in the second half and worked their line out and scrum well. Tries to Trent Foaafo and Roanis Lamond put King’s into a good lead but Sacred Heart hit back on the scoreboard with the game going back and forward. Two converted penalties by Ethan Stuart and Jason Honor put King’s ahead with the clock ticking down, but Scared Heart hit back with a last minute try. With time then up, this try was converted to make the final score a draw.

A very encouraging performance from our boys against what is always a strong Second XV from Sacred. Well done to all.
