St Peter’s win over CHS

St Peter’s First XV beat Cambridge High 55 to 7.

St Peter’s First XV had a victory over local rivals Cambridge High School last Wednesday, winning 55-7 in trying conditions.

The mid-week game meant crowd support was encouraging from both schools. St Peter’s were well-led by co-captains Simon Parker and PJ Latu, who both had very strong games with the ball in hand.

They were ably-supported by key players Andrew Viane, Lini Ekuasi and Cam Roigard.

St Peter’s forwards and ball players were too big and strong for the spirited Cambidge High defence, running in a total of nine well- constructed tries.

The victory means St Peter’s now progress as the Chiefs’ Co-Ed finalist, facing Manurewa in the final – the winner of which will represent the Chiefs’ region at the National Co-Ed Champions in Palmerston North.
