Highland Wins at London
By Jason Hasson
In a David and Goliath match up, Highland U18 Men contested a hard fought defensive battle against a London team much larger in numbers and stature.
With only two subs and one U16 player, Highland took control of the St. George pitch, scoring early on penalty kicks and holding back a hard driving ruck and run attack. At half-time, London led by one point on a try and conversion, but Highland had clearly dominated the first 30 minutes.
London fielded ten fresh players for the second half and came out strong, but again Highland took control. Both teams displayed dogged determination with offensive phases moving into the double digits. An impressive run up the middle landed our boys a well earned try. Quality and brains won out over quantity and brawn. It was glorious.
Man of the match, Jordan Van Milligen for his versatile, wily, and aggressive play.
