Rugby season draws to a close vs Dale College

The St Andrew’s College 1st XV finished off the domestic season with a well deserved 22-19 win over Dale College on Lower, in Grahamstown this weekend.

Dale started brightly and looked the more dangerous of the two sides but he College scramble defense held firm. The deadlock was finally broken twenty minutes into the game when the College centre Myles Boden scored off a set piece move. With their confidence up, College scored again through livewire hooker, Rupert Kretszchmar, after a dominant lineout drive. This put College 10-0 in front at the half time break.

The College winger, Jacques Cloete was next on the scoreboard, with College finding themselves 15-0 in front halfway through the second half. Dale were not done yet however, and hit back with two tries of their own to narrow the gap to 15-12 with under five minutes to play. College were determined not to let this game slip away from them and another good try to Myles Boden off a set piece saw them stretch their lead to 22-12. Dale scored at death to narrow the deficit to just three points but St Andrew’s College found themselves deserved winners in their last game on Lower for the season.
