Match Report for

Fairfield Prep (1st) vs. Fairfield High School (1st)
05 May 2017

Location: Fairfield Prep

Fairfield Prep: 41    Fairfield High School: 38

Excellent game of rugby between these two, cross tow, rivals. The first half was a bit messy with both sides more interested in pushing and shoving off the ball rather than actually playing rugby, but after they got that out of the system the Rugby really got going. 8 try's were scored in the first half with 5 of them going to Fairfield.

Halftime: PREP: 17 FAIRFIELD:31

After the break Prep really found their stride, they got back to basics and their simple style was very effective. The game came down to a goal line stand with Prep attacking. Unfortunately Fairfield lost their composure and disciple near the goal line (offside, side entry, not back on a PK, more offside in the space of 30 seconds) lead to a penalty try.

At the end of the day it was a brilliant game with a bunch of highly skilled high school players, a very entertaining affair. Only real low point of the day for me was comments from two of the Fairfield players as they exited the field (one of whom was the captain) telling me how I missed a knock on and "blew the game" for them. Terrible sportsmanship from at any level but especially disappointing to hear it from high school players.

Referee: Miles McIvor
