Kristin Rugby Team Win the Final
Saturday 19 August saw the Kristin 1st XV rugby boys take on Northcote College in the North Harbour 1C grade final.
Kristin had faced Northcote twice in the regular season and beaten them on both occasions, both game`s being close and hard fought. As the game started we were relieved that the predicted heavy rain had not arrived and we managed to play most on the game before the downpour.
The final did not disappoint as it was again a very close and hard game of rugby. With only 5 minutes to go the score was tied up at 10-10 before Kristin went over for a try. Predictably, Northcote were back on our try-line almost immediately, but Kristin held them off for a well deserved 15-10 win. It was fitting for our year 13 students to end their rugby careers at Kristin.
Well done to the boys, coaches and parents for an amazing season.
