ST Charles College played host to their inter-city rivals Voortrekker on Saturday afternoon.

The game started off with the Voories defence being tested through a number of phases, eventually leading to a break into the Voories 22, with a cover tackle in to touch.

Unfortunately, Voortrekker’s exit play didn’t find touch and went straight to the Saints full back, Luyanda Mazeka, who showed some good feet and a clean pair of heels to get over into the left corner.

The try was unconverted. An un- tidy­ restart lead to a penalty in front of the posts for the visitors which they dually converted, the score 5-3.

The visitors had another penalty from some distance and to the right which their fly half dually slotted over.

Later in the half, with more enterprising attack a second try was scored by the Saints right wing.

Saints then opened up a lead with another two unanswered tries just before half time to leave the scoreboard reading 26-6 to the Saints.

The second half started better for the visiting side with a well worked team try.

The Saints boys got themselves back into the game with their fifth try only to have Voortrekker come back again with their second try, the score 33-16 with 20 minutes to play.

A couple of substitutes were made and a renewed vigour was in the game, Saints scoring a further two converted tries to end the game, convincing winners, 47-16.
