Results – U15 Sevens Tournament

Scots College overcame defending champions St Pat’s Silverstream 24-19 in golden point extra time, after scoring at the death of regulation to send it into overtime.

Both Scots and Silverstream took circuitous routes to the final after both were upset in pool play; Scots lost 19-29 to Wellington College while Silverstream were tipped over 5-7 by Taita.  In the the semi-finals Scots narrowly edged Taita 26-24, while Silverstream overcome Wellington College 31-21 to set up the final.  Taita – who were the real entertainers of the day –  took third winning 29-26 but only after Wellington College came within inches of coming back from 7-29 down, while Naenae saw off Newlands for fifth.
