The U12 Boys Rugby team took part in the ACIS tournament finals this past Tuesday. After 6 weeks of games, the team was placed according to seeding in the Bowl competition for the finals.
After a slow start against GEMS, the boys rallied to bring themselves back into the game. With some amazing tries from Aaron and Hugh, they thankfully avoided the loss and still had hopes of some silverware.
The strong finish meant the boys would have to face off against a very competitive Dulwich 2s team, who they had failed to beat in previous encounters. Despite the boys previous record, they seemed to relish the challenge and had a great start to the game scoring three tries in the first five minutes. The second half saw the Dulwich team rally and start to test the DCIS defence, however we stood strong with some amazing try saving tackles from Josh and Alfons.
Spurred on, the boys ended just as strong as they’d started, getting another three tries. At the final whistle the score was 6 tries to 4, meaning not only did the boys record their first win against Dulwich, but they also won the Bowl competition, an amazing accomplishment.
A big well done to all those involved and to all the parents for their support.
