Centenary draws in rugby, hockey

HARARE - Fierce rivals St George’s College and Prince Edward settled for two draws in rugby and hockey at the traditional Centenary Sports Day on Saturday.

The two sides drew 11-11 in rugby before playing outa one all draw in hockey at St George’s.

Saints’ rugby side, coached by former Zimbabwe youth international Brendon Brider, got their points through two penalties by flyhalf Angus Bruce and a unconverted try by wing Daniel Chidavayenzi.

Two penalties by flyhalf Munashe Furamera and an unconverted try by flank Shepherd Mhembere were enough for the Tigers to earn the draw.

The half time score was 11-3 in favour of the hosts, but the Tigers turned on the style in the second half to level matters.

However, both teams struggled with their handling and were generally sloppy.

Saints fullback Tarisai Mapfumo said complacency in the second half allowed the Tigers to claw back.

In soccer, Prince Edward continued their domination over their rivals, winning 2-1.

The Centenary Sports Day is an annual event to commemorate the establishment of the country’s two oldest boys’ schools, both established over 100 years ago.
