5th Grade Rugby battle their way to the semi-final

King’s College 5A entertained MAGS in a 1/4 final knockout game on Saturday and prevailed 10-7 after a mighty tussle. King’s played with the wind in the first half and scored 2 neat tries while dominating the entire half. This despite losing a number of players for various blood issues at the ferocious breakdown points.

The second half saw King’s concede a slew of contentious penalties and we spent 20 minutes continuously defending our line. Gallant defence and a desire to not be bested at the collision zone enabled the boys to not concede until the last movement of the game. An amazing defensive performance which should prove very handy training heading into a crunch semifinal against Sacred Heart next week.
