After a sharp start to the morning with a good Canterbury frost, the fields thawed for a perfect afternoon of sport. All games were played in fantastic spirt.

In rugby, Medbury managed to secure a win, showing some exciting ball skills. Medbury won the hockey, scoring four wonderful goals. In the football, Medbury 1st XI drew 3 all with St Andrew’s in a classic encounter and Medbury 13 Blue managed to score in the last minute of the game to win 4-3 in a thriller on Ilam Fields. At St Andrew’s, the Medbury 12 Red football team came back from 2-5 down to draw 5-5. A brilliant effort not to give up and come back.

We look forward to seeing how our Medbury 12 Red Football and Medbury 1st V Basketball teams go on Monday for the last two games of the exchange.

We thanks St Andrew’s for playing in great spirit and appreciate the support from the boys on the sidelines.
