Westlake Boys Premier Rugby League vs Avondale College
The Westlake Boys Premier Rugby League team pulled off a comeback draw against Avondale College in their first match of the CRL competition championship round. Westlake began poorly allowing Avondale to race out to a 12-0 lead but when Westlake eventually composed themselves, the team scored three tries in the first half to take a 16-12 lead into the break. Avondale started the second half strongly and scored two more tries to skip to a 28-16 lead. Westlake fought back with two late tries to earn a 28 all draw.
The result was a fair reflection of what was an intense and exciting game which neither side deserved to lose. Westlake now play Kelston Boys High School next Wednesday at home in a must win encounter. Standout performers for the team were Lotu and Fine Inisi as well as Christian Ma’anaima.
