The Middle School and Junior Varsity finals were held at the International School of Manila on Saturday, 25th of January. The afternoon started with the newly formed u12s tackle teams from ISM, BSM, EIS and CRC playing two games. These were both extremely close contests with the Combined schools team winning the first game 10 – 5 and then both teams went toe to toe in the second game to end in a 5 – 5 draw.
The Middle school finals saw ISM take on the Mavericks and in a slow start to the first game, both teams ground out a 5 – 5 all draw to set up the final for the second game. The ISM team came out firing in the final game and took the Mavericks by surprise and won the MANSAC Middle School final by 38 – 0.
The first Junior Varsity semi finals was played between ISM Gold and Green. Gold won the tight battle (17 – 15), because of a succesful conversion late in the game. CRC played against BSM in the other JV semi final match. The boys from Clark proved once again that speed and agility are powerful weapons in rugby as they ran out winners by 27 – 0.
This set up the JV Final with ISM Gold going into the game with a size advantage and the CRC team taking the speed advantage. The game hung in the balance and the scores were locked at 5 – 5 all at the halfway mark. Both teams had opportunities in the second half and it was ISM that scored first to take the lead. We saw the usual comeback as CRC threw caution to the wind and ran in a late try to finish regulation time at 10 – 10. The JV final then went to overtime for the golden point and it was the CRC team that swooped on an open kick to win the ball and score first in extra time. Congratulations to CRC for winning the 2014 MANSAC Schoolboys JV finals.
The MANSAC teams would like to thank ISM for hosting the finals and the PRFU for providing the Match Officials and schedules.
