Sports Results: Kearsney College

Here’s a roundup of Kearsney’s rugby and hockey reports and selection of pics from the weekend’s fixtures against Hilton.



Kearsney 1st XV lost to Hilton 19-24

Kearsney hosted Hilton in a much-anticipated rematch on the hosts’ Founders weekend on a cool, windy afternoon. Hilton started well and dominated the opening 10 minutes of the match; and only resolute defence kept them at bay, with one converted try and a penalty to show.

Kearsney clawed their way back into the match and gradually started to dominate possession and territory stakes. It was the ever-present flanker Dylan Bissett who eventually dived over with scrum half Taine Muirhead adding the conversion.

The hosts turned down some point-scoring penalties which could have been to their detriment in the long run.  Hilton, however, had the better of the set phases and deservingly led 10-7 at half time.

Kearsney started the second half with a vengeance and eighth man Sibusiso Sangweni scored from a clever Muirhead ship kick.  Muirhead converted and Kearsney took the lead for the first time in the match at 14-10.

The lead did not last long as the hosts battled to control the kick off and conceded a 5m lineout from where the macro Hilton pack physically dominated the contact area.  Eventually the burly lock Taljaard crashed over for Schreuder to convert and regain the lead at 17-14.

Following five minutes of play it was the same two point-scorers combining in similar fashion, to give Hilton a handy lead of 24-14.

Kearsney applied pressure from the kick-off and with a penalty opted for a lineout maul 10m out which they successfully executed, closing the gap to 19-24.

Kearsney dominated proceedings for the last eight minutes but, due to a combination of errors and solid Hilton defence, the score remained unchanged to the end.  It was a memorable occasion with an exciting and hard-fought match.




Kearsney 1st X1 drew 3-3 with Hilton College 1st X1

Kearsney’s 1st XI played their return fixture against Hilton at their Founders weekend with, once again, little to separate the two teams.  The game ended as a 3-3 draw.

Both teams must be given credit for playing open attacking hockey and scoring some excellent goals on the day.

Kearsney’s goal scorers were Joshua Barret, David Hudson and Liam Maguire.
