C Div Match Report 8: Montfort vs Greendale

Securing their place in the C Div Plate Semi-Final, the Montfort Rugby Lions ran in an impressive thirteen tries in an awesome display of pride, power and passion against Greendale in the Plate Quarter-Finals at Greendale Secondary's home ground on Friday August 14th.

Leading by example, our C Div captain, Mohd Shamir opened the try fest with a well-worked move after seven minutes.

Taking the cue from the tireless running of their captain, Montfort piled on the stunned Greendale team and by half-time were leading 43-0.

Seventeen minutes into the second-half, Montfort hit the magical point mark with a converted try that brought the score to 81-0.

The game was ended at the 47th minute mark as part of the "mercy rule" in force for the schools rugby that ends a match when it crosses the 80 point mark.

Match referee Kelvin Lee controlled the match well and had a firm grip on the proceedings and the clean record of the match was a testimony to his professional handling of the match.

Eight of the thirteen tries (61.5% success rate) were converted by the Montfort dead-ball specialists.

There is still area for improvement in the goal-kicking department and is still a source of worry for the coaching panel.

The coaching panel named Kenny Lee as the Man-of-The-Match who lit up the first half with an awesome ball-in-hand rampage down the left wing which ended with a try.

With the win, Montfort secured a place in the Plate Semi-Finals against Junyuan Secondary next Tuesday.
