The British School Manila Middle School boys team won the MANSAC MS finals last Saturday, January 24, at BSM field, BGC, Taguig City. BSM had to overcome a tough International School Manila MS squad to finally win the coveted title. In the first match of the two-game finals, the BSM and ISM boys had to settle for a 19-all draw after 20 minutes of Rugby. The second match proved crucial and just as exciting as the winner will be crowned the champions. BSM showed speed with two breakaway tries out wide. ISM tried to make a comeback with a try late in the second half but time was not enough. Final score was 10 - 7 for BSM.
Hats off to both teams for an exciting and hard-fought finals series. Some of these boys will represent the country as u14 Junior Volcanoes in Kuala Lumpur on March 7 to 8, 2015. Congratulations and good luck to all the selected boys!
