TOWN 1XV ROLLS ON
St Patrick's College have continued their most successful season beating Hastings Boy's High School 20-13 in their Hurricanes region semi final at Evans Bay.
Up 12-8 at half time, the home team conceded an early second half try to find themselves behind by one point for most of the second half. They valiantly held their line, repelling numerous charges by Hastings.
With four minutes to play they finally got their chance to go back in front with a difficult penalty kick. First five Zac Donaldson stepped up and cooling slotted the kick, much to the delight of the Evans Bay faithful.
Almost immediately after the restart, loose forward Kevin Fauatea put the game beyond doubt breaking through the defense to run 45 metres for the game clinching try.
They will travel to Porirua next Saturday to contest the Regional final against Scots College in a rematch of the Wellington Premiership final. Photo: Masanori Udagawa
