Prince Edward Beat Sorry Churchill
Prince Edward Tigers inflicted more misery on their city counterparts Churchill bull dogs by beating them 24-7 in the biggest match so far at the Dairibord Schools rugby festival.
Tigers managed to score 4 tries in a tension filled match that was played at the Jubilee field before a full house.
Rugby lovers who came in their thousands were treated to spectacular rugby as the match between the two old rivals was the most anticipated of the festival.
This was Churchill’s second defeat of the festival after they were beaten by Falcon College in their first game, Bull Dogs risk leaving the tournament winless if they don’t pull their socks against St George’s on Saturday.
Despite team colours clashing, the match still retained the gloss it has managed to brand itself with as the atmosphere remained electric with both fans loudly cheering their teams.
Meanwhile festival impressive boys Falcon College continued with their fine run in form as they recorded the biggest win of the festival so far, annihilating Watershed College 74-0.
Falcon scored 12 tries after going to halftime with a comfortable 45-0 lead.
In another exciting match Peterhouse played their first game scoring 6 tries to beat Midlands Christian College by 40-0.
An emotional Peterhouse who withdrew from their opening match against Tigers after one of their players’ parents was involved in an accident on their way to the festival, shook off the misfortune to give a good account of themselves.
Speaking to 3-mob.com their coach David Kirkman said although they looked unfit they managed to play well.
“I thing we were scrappy and MCC played very well they never gave up, they kept coming on us, we were very rusty and didn’t execute as we would like.
“We are a very close family and if one of us comes under pressure like that we both pull together for that person,” he said.
