Y7 Rugby 9-a-side Tournament win
06 June 2016
The Year 7s finished the year with an impressive, unbeaten 9-a-side tournament win at Cowley. This ensures St Cuthbert's had success at both ends of the age range with the Year 11s recently being crowned St Helens champions again.
The Year 7s where dominant in their group beating Rainford, Rainhill and Cowley to top the group and the try scoring charts. Scores came from all over the park with Bamber, Pinner, Dysart, Buckley and Gilford all amongst the try scorers.
Success against De La Salle in the semi led to a re-match against Rainford in the final. This proved to be much tighter than the group stage and the Saints first team (waiting to start training!) witnessed St Cuthbert's win a dramatic 'golden point' game. McKenzie Buckley scored the winner with a typical barnstorming run from the halfway line.
This win underlined the promise of the Year 7 team and they will go into next year's national cup play-off with confidence.
