Eaglesvale in big win

HARARE - Eaglesvale were the biggest winners on the second day of the Dairiboard Rugby Schools Festival after defeating Bulawayo’s Milton High 58-7 yesterday at Jubilee Field at Prince Edward School.

The Harare school coached by Sables mentor Cyprian Mandenge put up a polished performance as they ran Milton ragged.

St John’s College also posted another impressive big win by walloping Lomagundi 45-7 in another one-sided affair on a day the top tier schools showed their class at the festival.

The other big winners were St George’s College, who took a while to get going before posting an impressive 53-3 win over Hellenic.

Schoolboy rugby powerhouses Falcon College survived an early scare from Kyle College before running out 48-15 winners.

Kyle began the game on a high tempo that unsettled Falcon in the opening minutes by attacking with a lot of pace.

However, the Brendon Dawson-coached side finally showed their class as the game grew on with flyhalf Benjamin Meredith dictating play in midfield.

Hosts Prince Edward were given a tough game by Midland Christian College before coming out tops 27-10

Tries from centre Adrian Zvaravashe, scrumhalf Michael Mhute, flyhalf Tinotenda Shavanhu, lock Godfrey Muzanagwo and fullback Tanaka Mutembadza saw the Tigers home.

Churchill Boys High did not hit top gear but they were able to brush off the challenge posed by Malborough to win 22-5.

Gateway needed a last-minute penalty kick to pip Watershed 20-19 while Heritage overcame Petra 10-5.
